The tower has 4 "legs" on which you can climb up. At that time, had opened only two of them and could rise as the elevator and peshkom.Chestno speaking, those who climbed on foot to the top, seemed to me at the moment is kind of like a slightly crazed bodybuilders (or climbing) - people who voluntarily want to overcome a number of steps, climbing up (and then the same number of steps down!) I was tired, otherwise called simply could not. Of course, if desired, can be reached only by foot to the 1 st or 2 nd level, and then go up the elevator (it will cost cheaper), but this "sport," as they say, an amateur. At the foot of the Eiffel Tower tourists usually expect two "scourge" - a dark-skinned inhabitants of the capital and turn. The first could survive without tangible consequences - it's about the Arab-African-American traffickers, scurrying back and forth with jingling bunches of "souvenirs" (mini-Eiffel Tower), which they enthusiastically trying to sell you. These are harmless, in fact, guys. Regarding the second I can say briefly - it is very long. After another 20 minutes I was envious watching the guide led a group of tourists goes to the elevator without waiting and regretting that we did not do the same - a group of visiting the tower of the provisional booking and jump the queue.But ... Paris is worth a Mass, and the Eiffel Tower - Recovery. Because the panorama opened in Paris - unforgettable, and let my first and I think the latter, the subjugation of the top of the famous beauties have passed is not as romantic as I can imagine, I do not regret it.
