Eiffel Tower Tourist Attraction

Posted by Worldouristattractions On 21:55 No comments

About Eiffel Tour:

At 300 meters (320.75 m including antenna), and 7,000 tons, it was the world's tallest building until 1930. Other statistics include:
  • 2.5 million rivets
  • 300 steel workers, and 2 years (1887-1889) to construct it.
  • Sway of at most 12 cm in high winds.
  • Height varies up to 15 cm depending on temperature.
  • 15,000 iron pieces (excluding rivets). 40 tons of paint. 1652 steps to the top.
Location: At the beginning of the Champ-de-Mars, close to the Seine.

General Info: Visiting Hours 09.00 – 0.45.  Over 25’s pay €4 (otherwise €3.10).  Lift prices vary depending on which level you travel to.  Using the stairs to reach Level 2 costs €4 for over 25’s, otherwise €3.10. Note: standing with your back to the River Seine the stairs entry is the right ‘leg’ at the back.  Further details from website.

Description:  This amazing 300m high metal tower was built to honor the centenary of the French Revolution and is a famous icon of Paris.

Our recommendations: You can visit any of the three floors; the first is at 57 m, the second at 115 m, and the third at 276 m which can be accessed by lift or stairs. The top of the mid-air is 320 m above the ground and on a nice day, you can see the entire of Paris. The top level is only available by lift, with long queues in peak season so start early for avoid the queues.  It’ll takes about 6 mins to walk to each level with children.  You could maximize the complete Eiffel Tower experience by dining at one of the 2 restaurants, either 58 Tour Eiffel on level 1 or Jules Verne on level 2. Be warned – these don’t come cheap!

For the children: The children will really enjoy hiking the stairs, you won’t!  The view is definitely impressive but won’t hold their notice for long, although there are some interesting boards explanation the history of the tower for the older ones.
