A spontaneous trip up La Tour Eiffel

A spontaneous trip up La Tour Eiffel, Paris

My friend and I made a spontaneous decision recently to go and walk up the Eiffel Tower – and why not?! It was a beautiful, albeit cold day – the sun was out, and with the prospect of the next few days being miserable here in Paris, this was the perfect opportunity. To my surprise, I was shocked at how cheap it was for us to walk up to the second level of the tower (which is a lot higher than it sounds!). However, I’m not gonna lie, it was tough walking up all those steps, but once completed, you’re rewarded with amazing views of the city. We also timed our visit really well, as we were able to see the sun setting over Paris. A view that I recommend to everyone!

    1. I can imagine it being beautiful at night time, and will definitely have to go up sometime! I was lucky enough to be able to see Paris at night from the Arc de Triomphe, which was sublime 🙂 thanks for checking out my blog!

    1. Yay! Paris will be lovely in March, I cannot wait to be able to explore the streets this Spring. In addition to the Eiffel Tower, you should think about going up the Arc de triomphe (small fee) or the terrace at Printemps department store (free!) for amazing views of the city 🙂


    1. There is, but I believe it costs a little more, and we had eaten some pastries before hand so the stairs was a better alternative!
