Majestic Eiffel Tower, Paris.
Eiffel Tower is one name that defines Paris. It could be visualized from every part of Paris and the view from far is as awe-inspiring as you’ll feel when you’re on top of it. It’s 324 mt. tall (~81 stories) building. The view of the city from the top is very beautiful. The green and golden domes, white tall buildings, red roofs, it’s breathtaking.
It has 3 levels 1st 2nd and the top one. First, second levels could be accessed by stairs but the top level could only be accessed by lift from the second level. There is only space for 300 people at the top level so tickets are limited. Tickets could be booked online, which a is a better option since it avoids the long queue.
