Eiffel tower, one of the Seven Wonders of the World is a popular destination for people from all around the world. It is an amazing architectural structure named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel who designed and built the tower. Visiting the tower at least once in a lifetime is a dream for many people. How can the visit to the Eiffel tower be made memorable? What are the things to be kept in mind before visiting the Eiffel tower? Here is a list of 8 things you should know before visiting the Eiffel tower. Let’s check what they are.
Reserve Day or Time of Visit
Prepay tickets to skip the lines. Thus you can reserve a time slot for your visit to the tower. But in situations like rain or fog, this prepaying will be a bad idea as there is no refund of the amount paid.
Get Out at the Trocadéro Stop
If you are taking the metro, always try to get out at the Trocadéro stop. Because the view from Trocadéro stop is very impressive and stunning.
Make Visits before Twilight
Always try to make visits shortly before twilight. This will let you experience the Eiffel tower before and after sunset. A nighttime light show by 20,000 light bulbs for five minutes per hour is really a breathtaking experience.
Most of the visitors use elevators to ascend the tower. Elevators from the ground floor which directly travels to the second floor may hide the first floor from visitors. The first floor with a grand gallery, gift shops, etc. will be a missed experience if not visited.
Climb Stairs Instead of Using Elevators
Try to use stairs instead of using the elevators. As the tower is much crowded, waiting for the elevator may take more than two hours of your visiting time. By using stairs, you will have a wonderful experience and you can stop wherever you want to enjoy the stunning view from the tower.
Make Use of Public Restrooms
You need not rush when you want to use the toilet. You can relax comfortably and make use of the public restrooms available at the second and third floors.
Walk on the See –through Floor
If you love to experience an adrenaline rush, you can try walking on the see-through floor which is 187 foot high from the ground and near the 58 Tour Eiffel restaurant.
If you want to enjoy the Eiffel tower for long, you can spend your time in the tower until it closes. However, a re-entry using the same ticket is not allowed.
