We visited during a recent trip and dined at Tour 58. A bit pricey but the food and service was very good. Also rode the elevator up to the submit. Great views of Paris.

It's the famous Eiffel Tower, and you've been dying to see it. Will it live up to your expectations? Maybe, maybe not. It's beautiful, no doubt, and there is a park right in front of it if you don't want to pay to get really...More
