In the Spring of 2007 we spent a week in this fascinating city. I could not get enough of the Eiffel Tower! I love the image of it. The tower is so big, you can view it from many different locations. It was just a few blocks from our hotel.
And surprise! at 9:00 pm for about 10 minutes, the tower lights up with sparkly twinkling white lights. It is just breathtaking.
We were in line for the elevator to ascend to the top, but come to find out after a few minutes waiting in the hot weather, it was the line for taking the stairs to the top! No thank you - I couldn't do that.
Did you know? The color of the tower is actually taupe and not black.
