Visit Paris: The Eiffel Tower

A visit to the Eiffel Tower was at the top of our list when we were planning our summer trip to Paris.  You can book your tickets from the official website two months in advance and I highly recommend you book as soon as the tickets are released if you have a specific time in mind as the early time slots sell out fast. 

There are 3 different types of tickets that can be purchased online and can grant you access to either the second floor or the summit via elevator or second floor via stairs.  We chose tickets that took us to the summit via elevator.  However, the day we arrived, the summit wasn’t open so everyone was taken to the second floor which still gives a nice view at 377 feet high.  Lucky for us while we were there, the summit opened so we took the elevator up.

At the summit, besides remarkable views at 906 feet high, there is also a gift shop, champagne bar, and Pierre Herme Paris macarons.  You’ll have to take the elevator back down, but from the second level, you can take the stairs down which was a fun experience. 

On our way!

Unfortunately, Champage Bar wasn't open yet.

Be sure to also catch a glimpse of the Eiffel Tower at night too.  The Trocadero is a popular spot to view the Eiffel Tower’s illuminations when it sparkles for five minutes from dusk until 1am.  For us, it sparkled at 11pm because the sun set at 10pm.  Seeing the Eiffel Tower was one of the highlights of our trip and it was the clear favorite of the entire trip for our two kids.
