Paris down below - as seen from Eiffel Tower

In my previous post about 'My maiden glimpse of Eiffel Tower, I talked about the strange feeling that I had when I first looked at the Eiffel Tower in the rather hazy morning and lining up to get the ticket to loo at Paris from the Eiffel top. Herein under today I am sharing how Paris looked down below while we had climbed up the two stages of the Eiffel Tower.

Climbing up from the ground floor to board the left for the first tier of the Eiffel Tower

Eiffel Tower has a total height of 325 metres as can be seen from the photo below. The first tier where visitors are taken is at a height of 149.23 metres. Four lifts feed the visitors to this level. However to reach the top of the tower which is at 276.13 metres, a single lift takes the visitors up to the top.

The photos below have been taking from the second tier of the tower as I described earlier.

Some more photos of Paris:
The famous White Church of Paris as seen from the tower (above and below left). I will cover my visit to this church in one of my next posts and would also narrate how I was almost robbed.

The Arch de Triumph as seen from the Eiffel Tower. After we came down, we went to see the place and the famous Champs-Élysées. I will cover the photos in my next post.

Here came an end to a memorable climb up the Eiffel Tower - something that will always remind me of my visit to Paris. I shall talk more landmarks of Paris in my subsequent posts.
