Eiffel Tower/Tour d’Eiffel
Must to my dismay the stairs from bottom to the summit lift have been permanently closed, for reasons unknown. There was no choice than to get the lift all the way to the top of the tower.
However, this worked out to our advantage as we reached the summit just as the sun was setting. The sunset lit up the whole of Paris, bathing it in a beautiful orange glow, as if it wasn’t already stunning. The lift took us down to the 2nd level and we were able to walk down from there, gaping at the beauty shining through the various criss cross patterns.
Each day of our 5 night city break we did an average of 20,000 steps equal to around 14/15km. No wonder our legs were shaking as we stumbled to the bottom of the Eiffel Tower, celebrating loudly the fact that another site was ticked off the ever growing bucket list. 🌍🇫🇷
