‘Paris bucket list: My top 10 things to do in the French capital’
3. The Eiffel Tower
Instead of trying to access the Eiffel Tower on the hop-on, hop-off bus trip, consider taking a tour that combines skip the line access with dinner in one of the restaurants. Otherwise the queues for the elevators can be very long and tiring. Or if you are very fit you could try walking up all those stairs. There’s not much competition for that! Some tour versions also include a night cruise on the Seine, or a show at the Moulin Rouge, which we did and recommend.
