Eiffel Tower – the most visited world landmark!
We have been visiting the Eiffel Tower on every Paris vacation. We would book a hotel near Eiffel Tower, we would stroll on Champ de Mars, we would buy our tickets, and then, we would enjoy the most famous Paris landmark, either walking up the 669 steps or using one of the Eiffel Tower lifts.
We would then take a seat in the cafe on the first platform, and order our favorite hot chocolate drinks. And while taking the sun, we would enjoy the spectacular view of Champ de Mars and École Militaire.
After having our drinks, we would continue our way up the Eiffel Tower. We would meet happy visitor’s faces in between the iron parts, and as we climb higher and higher, we would discover how beautiful Paris might be.
Once on the second platform, we would take another break. We just wouldn’t miss the magnificent views of Paris. École Militaire, Les Invalides, Montparnasse Tower, Basilique de Sacre Coeur, La Defance are all in sight.
Then, there’s only a short ride in a lift in order to get to the Eiffel Tower top. It could be really windy there, but we wouldn’t miss our glass of champagne to celebrate being at the final point of our journey.
It’s amazing how this bizarre structure can attract so many visitors. They come from all over the world and impatiently queue to climb it. They photograph, they smile, they laugh, they simply hang around, feeling happy by just being beside her.
Of course, I see this happen almost every day now. And I kind of fell in love with her.
Gone are the days when the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France was an outrageous creation in the eyes of most french intellectuals. Today, it’s the most visited world monument.
