Neighbourhood
“Explore the Eiffel Tower Come and discover the Eiffel Tower: the only trip to the top of its kind in Europe, one where emotions carry you away. From the esplanade to the summit you will experience a whole series of emotions. Soak in the breathtakingly unique views of Paris from every floor, feel the goose bumps as you walk the glass floor on the 1st floor, experience the incredible ascent by stairway or lift, the indescribable awe at the tonnes of iron above you as you stand on the esplanade. Vertigo grips you as you leave the lift at the top of the tower and see the people down on the Champs-de-Mars and the cars driving along Trocadéro! And the Eiffel Tower always has something to offer, day or night, summer or winter!”

Middle School
“A wonderful park by the river where you can go for a walk or a sunbathing picnic. Popular with the local community and somewhat of a hidden jewel from the more touristy parks in the City of Lights. A pleasant 10 min walk down rue Saint Charles.”

No cars, ideal for a break or to eat.
