The Eiffel Tower or La Tour Eiffel  is one of the most-visited paid monuments in the world and for a just cause. Originally viewed as an eyesoar, the city planned to tear it down after 20 years; however its utilization for communication purposes kept the structure standing. If you fancy a meal within this French icon, there are two restaurants within the tower. If not, you can always purchase some champagne from the Champagne Bar at the top (more like a cute little closet where an employee sells bubbly in plastic cones) or some snacks on the second level (hot chocolate comes in handy when there is a bit of wind chill). All in all, the journey all the way to the top is worth the wait, even if you hate long lines. The 360º view should be experienced in person. So put this place on your bucket list of places to go or things to see.
