I visited Paris 6 years ago. Then the Eiffel Tower and the park across from it was wide open and easily accessible from all directions. Today, after the terrorist bombings, each are fenced in with specific entry points, destroying the vista from end to end. That said, it's still an amazing attraction to visit. We decided to climb the stairs instead of riding up the elevator (much shorter lines!) If you have a student with you, be sure they bring their student ID. My daughter didn't and we were forced to pay the full admission. The views from the tower were spectacular. Worth the climb for sure.

first time seeing the eiffel tower in real life.
i was amazed to say the least. i couldn't take my eyes of it and at night its even better. every hour at night is a light show that seems to last for about 10 minutes.

my only complaint is i wish they would have kept the area around eiffel tower clean and less or no illegal vendors.
the streets has garbage everywhere and the parks and walkways towards the tower have vendors everywhere

The tower is worth seeing at any angle, but nothing beats the tower lit up at night. If you want a view of the city, go up, but it’s a great site from the ground up.
