We only had about half a day in Paris before picking up our RV and heading out on our road trip. We decided the best thing to do with our time was to return to the Eiffel tower and try to get all the way to the top.
Emmy was very excited to start our day at a little cafe big fans of Pain au chocolat. Our hotel was near the Eiffel Tower so we got there nice and early.
We had planned on taking the stairs to the second platform, then taking the elevator to the summit. We didn’t know that two legs of the tower offer access to the stairs and two have access to the elevator all the way. When we got to the front of the line they told us we had to go get into another line to climb but could get tickets in the elevators all the way to the top. We didn’t want to wait in another line and possibly miss getting tickets to the summit so we happily took the elevator.
The views are just incredible from every level.
Waiting in line to get to the summit isn’t bad when we had these views.
The summit was incredible, they sell champagne and macarons so it’s fun to see people celebrating all different occasions.
After our time at the top we took the elevator back down to the first platform where we had lunch.
When we were done we walked around the Champ de Mars and found a cute little Carousel of the Eiffel Tower.
Too soon we had to gather our luggage from the hotel and catch an Uber to pick up our RV. We were able to adjust pretty well to the time change by staying up late on our first night in France.
We got our RV and on the road in the afternoon, it was fun to be in the same model as the one we rented in Germany in 2019.
We recommend Indie Campers if you need a rental abroad or in the US. We are already thinking about renting a van for a UK trip soon!
