Eiffel Tower

We visited the Eiffel Tower over a three day period: once at night, during our daily walks, and finally to ascend the tower. We were lucky to have a sunny day during our final visit. We waited an hour to get to the second level observation deck, but it was well worth the time. I canít imagine wait times during peak season. The two busiest tourist places in Paris are the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower.
