The are three ‘floors’ on the Tower. The first and second floors can be reached by climbing the stairs, though taking the lift would be the sensible option ! To go the the top floor, though, you’ve no option but to take the lift – the flight of steps between the second and third floors were taken out some years ago. (There are three entrance fees, depending on how far you want to go – it’s currently 11.50 € for an adult to go to the third floor, though you can stop on the first and second floors as well, if you want to). Even if you’re not great with heights, I would recomemend going all the way to the top – the scariest part, for me, was the lift between the second and third floor. (On the top floor, the outer platform has been ‘caged in’, so you’re not going to fall off too easily). The view is absolutely fantastic and is worth taking in, no matter what the weather – though you will see further on a clear day !
There are cafes, souvenir shops and displays spread over the three floors. There’s also the Jules Verne restaurant – though, by all accounts, not only will you need a reservation to dine, it’s also very expensive.
No matter how limited your time in the city is, no matter what the weather’s like, no matter how ‘touristy’ it seems, this is one of the things you simply HAVE to do if you come to Paris !over 6 years ago
