Colleen & Antoine’s Experience of the Eiffel tower

The Eiffel Tower is a big landmark and going to see it close for a walk is an amazing experience! You might want to get in the line to go up, but while on a short trip, you could have better views of Paris from other buildings.
My favorite part of the Eiffel Tower is having a picnic on the lawn behind it to enjoy a great view of this landmark. Just get your supplies nearby on rue de Cler and have fun. Check out our video on how to plan the perfect picnic in Paris
