When in Paris you have to visit the Tower, we visited at Easter time so the queues were huge. There is lots of security in place and lots of street vendors trying to sell you their goods. However that should not distract from visiting this site. Well worth a visit.

Paris is such an amazing city and the Eiffel Tower is a must. It is much bigger and more impressive in real life! We didn't go up the tower, just seeing it from the ground is spectacular enough! I loved it at night when it starts blinking (it began to sparkle on the hour for 10 minutes).
It's one of the most famous monuments in the world, so be ready to queue if you want to go up! Don't go to Paris without visiting it, even if you don't climb it. This is a must do!

This hideous hunk of metel isn't worth the effort it takes to get in. I showed up 90 minutes before opening, got through security, then stood in line for another 30 minutes waiting for them to open. The ticket line for the south tower never opened and the guard rudely just brushed away the hundreds of people standing in line. All the people from that line lost their spot and were forced into the end of the other elevator line. I decided to leave at that point rather than wait. The employees are awful and the ticketing system needs updating. Paris is a terrible city for tourists.

Even if you have limited time in Paris, swing by the Eiffel Tower. I don't think it is necessary to take a tour but just fun to see!
