The Eiffel Tower

The symbol of Paris draws visitors from all around the world.

We walked down through the Trocadero Gardens and fountains to get to the base as the tower gets higher and higher in front of you.

It’s a long way up, made even longer by the two and a half hour wait in the line at the bottom.

We could have joined a shorter queue, but that was for walking up the stairs. We preferred the lift, especially as we planned to rise to the summit.

The ride up is through the mecano-like structure of the legs. The view from the top is spectacular.

And it’s worth a short pause at the champagne bar – why not!
