The tower is a Paris eyesore, and the Parisians absolutely hate it and for good reason. It was built on the left bank, and just a little too close to historical neighborhoods for comfort. As soon as it went up, they wanted to tear it down, but it didn't happen. It's one redeeming feature is a Really Great View....
The last time I went to the Tower it was in a nice, warm enclosed floor that even had a small restaurant.
Much to our surprise it was closed for renovations, and we had to climb 4 flights of stairs to the roof top!
A special treat at night..
Did I mention the howling wind, cold temperatures and rain on the top of the roof?
Luckily, some really brave ladies still thought it was worth it!
