It's been quite sometime since I've seen this grand dame in person...If you going to Paris the view from the top is breath taking. We went in the evening, very magical! Do note that the top sways about a foot to either side at the top and its a bit windy up there! Stop off at the center-there's a lovely mini exhibit that tells all about the tower's construction, history, and Eiffel himself. At night the tower is lit and changes color--no one does architecture like a Parisian!
