I know I know.. it's touristy- it's crowded.. but it is always one of my favorites! If I went to Paris and I did not visit the Eiffel Tower I would somehow feel that I had missed something. I have tried to at least visit the park each time I have been to Paris and each time it is different. We have eaten at the restaurant and loved it, been to the top to watch the sun set at 10:45pm (best ever), and watched the lights come on in the evening. I love the gardens below and on a rainy day it is nice and quite. When we walked up to it and I saw the cherry tree in full bloom I almost died- the lighting was so perfect!
The neighborhood that surrounds it has the most amazing architecture! I would love to live here... maybe someday!
Visit the official site for what is happening right now and to buy tickets... And don't forget there are so many places that you can get a glimpse of the tower all over the city so keep your eyes open..
