When you think of love and romance, which major city comes to mind? Of course, Paris. If it’s your first visit or you’re a Paris aficionado, these are the absolute Eiffel Tower must do’s to make your trip perfect from start to finish.
You can’t say you’ve visited Paris without a stop at the Eiffel Tower. The Eiffel Tower is usually where most tourists in Paris stop first. Did you know that there is so much more to do in the vicinity of the Eiffel Tower than you think?
Our first must do is to eat! The Eiffel Tower is home to not one, but five different eateries. The 58Tour Eiffel is located on the first floor and offers guests both lunch and dinner options. This restaurant is family friendly and is a chic bistro type of atmosphere. Classic French cuisine can be found on the menu. The views are also incredible.
Also available on the esplanade, first, and second floors is the buffets. This is where you will find something for everyone in the family. There is a good mixture of sweet, salty, hot, and cold. Perfect food for a little family picnic under or right next to the tower.
On the second floor, you’ll find Le Jules Verne. This upscale restaurant will give you only the finest French cuisine. Items on the menu include roasted cauliflower, foie gras, caviar, and veal, among others. The restaurant serves lunch and dinner and is accessible by a private entrance and elevator. Reservations are highly recommended.
Lunch or dinner not your thing? You simply cannot visit France and not get some delicious macaroons. Located on the second floor of the tower, The Macaroon Bar gives visitors the opportunity to get some of these famous French desserts. Flavors include chocolate, coffee, lemon, strawberry and many more. The macaroon bar is open for dine in or take out.
Take a trip to the top of the tower and you can explore the observation deck and picturesque Paris views. Of course, romantic views, a trip at sunset, adding a glass of French champagne would be nice. The Champagne Bar is open from 12:00 PM to 5:15 PM and 6:15 PM to 10:45 PM.
Other landmarks around the Eiffel Tower include the Champ des Mars, the Trocadero, the Modern Art Museum of the City of Paris, a Seine River Cruise, the Hotel des Invalides, enjoy the markets at Rue Cler, and visit the Palais Galliera.
