DREAM. COME. TRUE.
Yesssss, finally made it!!! Can’t tell you how long I’ve been wanting to visit Paris and the Eiffel Tower!!! ♥
If you read my previous post about our first day in Paris, you’d know that for the first few days that we were there it was freezing cold and raining all day! We prayed and hoped that the sun would come out on our last day and voilàààààà!
We took our Hop-On-Hop-Off bus to the Eiffel tower and headed straight for the lines since we knew it was going to be a long wait! See all the people in the lines behind me! I think we waited around 30 mins to 1 hour. There are also separate lines for those taking the stairs vs the elevator so make sure you’re in the right line! 😛
The guards are the entrance of the Tower are quite rude. Don’t let them ruin your day though!
Ticket prices: (Adult rates | 12 to 24 years | Reduced rate for 4 to 11 years and Disabled)
Lift to 2nd floor = €11.00 | €8.50 | €4.00 €1 = Php 53 *as of November 2016*
Lift to top floor = €17.00 | €14.50 | €8.00
Stairs to 2nd floor = €7.00 | €5.00 | €3.00
We opted to take the lift to the top floor then stop on the 2nd going down!
Paris from above!!! Kind of reminds me of the view of New York from the Empire State Building 🙂
There are a lot of people here! There are defintiely some parts of the tower are just full of people. Still a great view and awesome expereince though 😛
You can also buy champagne from the bar while you’re enjoying the view!
In love with Paris!!! ♥
On our way down we stopped at the 2nd floor. This is where all the restaurants are and the souvenir shop!
I love the clear glass floors! Hehehe.
Of course, who can forget to take a picture with the Eiffel Tower in the back ground!
Look at this cute kid, just chillin’ in his stroller. Hahaha!
The Eiffel tower is also a lot bigger than I expected! In previous years I think there was an ice rink here, not sure if they’ll have it again this year but that would’ve been fun to try!
We had pizzas for lunch beside the Eiffel Tower. Stunning lunch view if you ask me 😛 Also bring snacks from the grocery stores to save money, snacks near the popular tourist destinations are quite pricey.
While we were in Paris we also wanted to visit the Pont des Arts bridge to see the famous love locks but we weren’t sure if they were still up. So after visiting the Eiffel Tower we decided to stop by another bridge with love locks!
I’m actually not to sure about the exact location of this place but if you take the L’OpenTour Hop-On-Hop-Off bus you’ll pass by it! Or you can definitely just ask for directions, we used google maps. Just search/ask for Vedettes du Pont Neuf.
