I have climbed the Eiffel Tower at least 10 times, maybe more.
My brother is to blame for this, since when we would spend summers in Paris with our grandma, he was always eager to try to climb it as many times he could. We'd usually get sick of it after 3 times, but during subsequent trips with friends they always wanted to climb it. So up we went!
I was so glad Fionn had already climbed it, but I figured we should still see it at least once. So I suggested my favorite viewing point, the Trocadero.
Trocadero is a large pavillion flanked by museums on each side. The Museum of Man and the Naval Museum are definitely worth a visit if you have time. If not, just get a super sweet photo of everyone's favorite Parisian landmark.
Another thing off my 25 by 25 list! Picture together in front of the Eiffel Tower :)
We happened to be there just as a half marathon was finishing up, and shortly before a bomb threat closed the Eiffel Tower for the day. Good thing we didn't want to climb it that day!
Do you have any favorite Parisian places?
