The Eiffel Tower, a symbol of Paris is surely on the bucket list for a lot of people & I was fortunate enough to visit it recently. So here are 5 things I think you should definitely do when you visit the Eiffel Tower. 

Just admire it’s god damn beauty

You are finally in Paris, standing near the Eiffel Tower. Take a minute & just enjoy this moment. Look around you and absorb in the beauty of this magnificent place. 

Buy a ticket & climb up the Eiffel Tower


This is absolutely a must do!!! And trust me it is worth every penny. There are 3 levels at the Eiffel Tower, accessible by both lift & stairs. For Level 1 & 2 it costs you 11€ by lift & 7 € by stairs and for level 3 it costs you 17 €. There are various student, group, adult & children’s discounts offered. There four entry gates but do check which ones are open when you reach there. Also, you can opt-in for an Audio tour of the Eiffel Tower. 

Reach early to get the best view & photos

Trust me when I say it, REACH EARLY. The Eiffel Tower opens at 9:00am and to enjoy it to its fullest reach there as soon as possible. I actually reached there by 10:00 am and it was amazing. There was really less crowd, the ticket counter was empty, the security check & elevator line was really small & best of all the viewing decks on Level 2 were practically empty.

 It is so because all the planned tour operators, as well as the Hop-On-Hop-Off buses, normally come there by 11:00 am. So you will get plenty of time to get the perfect picture and Snap story without many people in it. I left by 12:30pm and by that time there wasn’t even any space to stand on level 2.



Take the mandatory Eiffel Tower photo

Well, this is something I don’t even need to mention. Take as many pictures you want, I sure did. I literally have 20 selfies in front of the Eiffel Tower just because I felt like doing so. 

Know the RER stations nearby & the routes

This is actually very important if you are traveling by RER as it will help you decide which RER station to go to for your next destination. I traveled the entire city through RER so I can tell you keep a map and by map, I don’t mean Google Map. I mean a proper printed map of the metro network. Keep the Google Map to find which station is nearer to your next destination. 

NOTE: BEWARE OF PICKPOCKETERS

Now, I’m not pretty sure if a lot of people experienced it but I certainly did so I thought I should warn you guys. I will surely share this experience too in another blog post soon. So just be aware of your belongings. 

Paris is a wonderful city & Eiffel Tower is an iconic location, so make the most of tour time there & enjoy.
