Skip the Line: Eiffel Tower Tour and Summit Access by elevator

Queues for the Eiffel Tower can take over an hour at busy times but this skip-the-line tour lets you breeze past the crowds and enjoy priority access. Head straight up to the second floor and listen as your guide points out the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, and Notre Dame Cathedral. Finally, continue to the top floor on your own, where you can spend as long as you like admiring the views.

This is a lovely little park set in a nice residential area. Lovely to visit in the summer for a picnic lunch - just don't sit on the grass however there are plenty of benches around the little pond. We visited in February and it was still very pleasant.

In our opinion, one just can't explore the quartier (neighborhood) des Batignolles without visiting the square des Batignolles, which is a smallish park designed and fully inaugurated during the so-called Second Empire (the reign of Louis-Napoleon or Napoleon III, the last 'Emperor of the French'), in the 1860s (please bear in mind that prior to 1860, the entire village/community/hamlet of Batignolles wasn't a part of the City of Paris, and neither was Montmartre and many other neighborhoods of what constitutes now the modern Paris). Sure enough, the park lacks in size, fame, magnitude and points of interest the scale of the nearby parc Monceau, but it is still worth visiting, if not as a dedicated tour but definitely as a part of acquainting yourself with this wonderful neighborhood. The oasis-like square des Batignolles is ideal for relaxation and leisurely walk with its little lakes, quirky bridges and even a merry-go-round. For the lovers of flora, there are numerous beautiful and exotic plants and trees. Right next to the merry-go-round, there is a small kiosk bearing the proud name of Chalet Batignolles that has been serving crêpes and ice cream since 1978. Ducks, geese, and water hens add to the overall tranquility of the place. Note one of the park promenades bearing the name of allée Barbara, the famous French singer (1930-1997), who was born at the nearby 6, rue Brochant.

We spent a nice morning strolling and shopping in Batignolles, which has two nice parks and a good variety of high-end specialty clothing and other shops.

This is a real treasure and haven in a busy and built up commercial and residential area, providing a welcome green space with walkways, running water and places to picnic, read and contemplate. There are currently some works being undertaking in streets adjacent too the park but ultimately this will be a big improvement. There is also a playground for children.

Square des Batignolles is a nice little park running parallel to the railway tracks in the northwest of Paris, in the neighbourhood Batignolles. The park was built in 1862, when the suburbs (including Batignolles), were included in Paris city limits by Haussmann and was one of the 24 parks created in that time by Jean-Charles Alphand. It has a little pond in the centre, with many birds, primarily ducks. A little cascading stress runs through the park, emptying into the pond. All around the pond, you have paths. It is very well shaded and has a nice breeze. It is a great place to catch a break, eat, relax, or exercise. They have a children's play area, a little carrousel, a small eatery selling crêpes, waffles and candy, and an area with a few table tennis tables that are free to use. There is also a little glass structure that is meant for exhibitions. Outside the park, there is a little structure made for pigeons. There are also 2 large pétanque pits outside the park. The park has toilets. Closest metro is Brochant on Line 13.
