When planning a visit to the City of Lights, you’re spoilt for choice with historic museums and cathedrals to see, amazing food to taste, quaint cafes to visit, and of course the magical Seine to walk along. But from all these amazing landmarks to visit in Paris, the one that attracts the most tourists is the infamous Eiffel Tower or Iron Lady.
Visiting the Eiffel Tower is always at the top of everyone’s list. Seeing the magnificent La Dame de Fer that even Hitler couldn’t defeat, is as awe-inspiring from the distance of the Champs de Mars as it is from right in front of it. But the best views of the Eiffel Tower, are those where you wake up in the middle of the night, walk over to the window and look out at the tower standing tall over the sleeping city of Paris.
So when you book that hotel in Paris, look for something where you can enjoy a glass of wine late in the evening while looking at the most famous landmark of Paris. Or book a hotel where you can wake up to sip your coffee while looking out at La Tour Eiffel!
