Hello Eiffel Tower
No trip to Paris is ever complete without setting eyes on the Eiffel Tower. Staying close to the tower gives you the opportunity to clap eyes on it every day, while you can also get up early to beat the often-very-lengthy line to catch an elevator to the top. The views from the top need little introduction, but when you’re up there you should also check out the apartment; that’s right, there’s an apartment at the top of the Eiffel Tower. Gustave Eiffel’s design incorporated a small apartment – some 1,000 ft in the air – that was reserved strictly for him and him alone. As soon as the justifiably envious Parisians found out about the apartment, they apparently offered Eiffel considerable sums of money just to stay the night – offers that Eiffel consistently turned down. When you’re back down at ground level, you’ll have your pick of some of the city’s best museums and art galleries. These include the magnificent Musée d'Orsay, which houses the world’s biggest and best collection of impressionist and post-impressionist paintings.
