The Iron Lady. The symbol of France. The Eiffel Tower has received plenty of nicknames over the years and that is not without reason. This iconic monument is visited by so many visitors every single day that in a whole year that number adds up to almost 7 million people! All of them are curious to see, what Paris looks like from this viewpoint. Understandable, right? With this ticket comes a downloadable audio guide, through which you learn all about the Eiffel Tower and what you can actually see from here.
When you’re standing on the first floor, which is located 57 meters high in the air, it’s impossible not to be amazed by the breathtaking view. From this exact spot you have an exceptional view over the Champ de Mars – one of the capital’s largest gardens. In fact, it takes up more than 25 hectares! While you visit the first floor make sure to have a closer look at the glass floor – it’s a little scary to look straight down through the floor, but it’s very fascinating at the same time!
Reach the second floor and you will be 115 meters up in the air. From here you have a 360° view, which cannot be beat! You can see just about everything from here: The Notre Dame Cathedral, Sacré-Coeur, Arc de Triomphe, Louvre and of course the famous street Champs Èlysées. Make sure to take a picture or two – or you can simply stand there and look over the city of Paris. Either way, this view will stick with you for a long time!
