Symbol of paris
The capital of France invites tourists to walk along its boulevards, dine in Michelin-starred restaurants, indulge in fantastic shopping during the sales period ...
As the most famous symbol of Paris, the tower is accessible to tourists, and they are delivered to the desired levels by means of an elevator. On the 1st level (height - 57 m), guests will find a restaurant, from the windows of which they will be able to admire the Parisian beauties - the Seine, quarters and palaces (in winter, the 1st level is interesting for the opening of an ice rink); for 2 (height - 115 m) - restaurant “Jules Verne” and an observation deck with glass openings in the floor; 3 (height - more than 270 m) - observation gallery. Above the viewing platform there are premises, of which the Eiffel Museum-Apartment is of the greatest interest. And at the foot of the tower, various events and concerts are often organized, which are worth attending.
