The Eiffel Tower in Paris


Last year my boyfriend and I were lucky enough to escape to Europe on an epic six week holiday. It was such an amazing trip and I would like to share a few of the best pictures, memories and tips with you, and this post is all about the very iconic Eiffel Tower!

Memories:


The Eiffel tower truly is an amazing, iconic building and it is even more impressive seeing in person. We visited this structure twice during our visit. Once during the day and then at night. I have two great memories linked with the Eiffel Tower which I will share with you below>>

The Busking Rabbit: 
We were walking towards the Eiffel Tower on our first visit when we came across a busking rabbit…yep a real rabbit! There was literally a rabbit sitting there on a concrete block with a little cup sitting next to him containing coins...He actually got a lot of tips too! As we were standing there, perplexed and amused, a police officer came and informed the rabbit’s owner that the rabbit was an illegal busker and must be taken away. FYI the police don't take too kindly to busking pets in Paris!





Pretty Lights: 
We stepped off the train at the Eiffel Tower stop and started walking in the direction of the Eiffel Tower. As we turned the corner past some trees, we see the Eiffel Tower bursting with twinkling lights! It was a truly magical moment. We were both so excited and amazed to see this and we soon started taking crazy, awesome and wonderful photos and video of the glittering Eiffel Tower and photos of each other in front of the Eiffel Tower. By the way, the above pictures have not been enhanced, and I love them!

Travel Tip:


Would you like to go up the Eiffel Tower but avoid the epic crowds? Why not head up the tower in the evening? The Eiffel Tower is open until 11 pm! We visited the Eiffel tower at about 10 pm and it was fantastic! No line, we wen’t straight to the top with no hassle, and the best part…no crowds! Also seeing the the twinkling lights of Paris of an evening isn't too bad either!

Oh how gorgeous. My husband and I went to Europe for our honeymoon back in 2005. Paris is one of my favourite cities in the world and the Eiffel tower is so beautiful. x
