When visiting Paris, there's no better place to take in the views of the city and feel some Parisian magic than the Eiffel Tower.
Located on the south bank of the Seine, "La Tour Eiffel" became the tallest building in the world when it was originally constructed as the entrance for the 1889 World's Fair.
Standing at 324 meters tall, you get a sense of the tower's scale as you stand at the base and look up at the impressive metalwork.
Energetic visitors can take the 300+ steps to the first level, though you'll have to jump in the lift if you want to go all the way to the top.
The view is more than worth the effort and you can see all the way to Sacré-Cœur on a clear day.
On the first level, you can test your bravery by standing on a glass floor looking down on the base below.
On the top observation deck, you can enjoy a glass of champagne while looking down on the most romantic city in the world.
Engineered by Gustave Eiffel, he designed himself a private apartment in the tower and you can see a reconstruction of it at the top.
We planned our visit just before sunset, so we could see it in the day before watching the city light up as night fell.
Once dark, you can enjoy the tower's hourly light show as it sparkles on the Seine and sends spotlights across the sky.
Though no longer the tallest building on the cities skyline, the Eiffel Tower is the most popular paid monument in the world and you can find out why by taking a trip to the top on your next Parisian adventure!
