As I set my eyes on the “Eiffel Tower,” the most famous Parisian Monument, bonjour whispered in my mind, a word I learned from my mama who loves Paris dearly. It excites me knowing that finally, I set foot in one of the most visited places in the world. It is indeed a lovely city and Paris did not disappoint me.
Looking back during world history class in my secondary years in school, these two famous structures in history namely, “Pyramid of Giza” of Egypt and “Eiffel Tower” of France triggered the wanderlust in me that someday I would like to travel and see these two iconic structures with my naked eyes.
Yes, dreams do come true in God’s perfect time.
Eiffel Tower is a wrought iron lattice tower on the Champ de Mars. It is stunningly beautiful in broad daylight and majestically illuminates at night in the heart of this fabulous city. As the sun starts to rest, the tower glitters with its golden covering that sparkles for 5 minutes every hour on the hour. It’s like a giant Christmas tree that shines over Paris.
For a while just let your eyes enjoy this wonderful experience, the beauty of the tower while its light bulbs twinkle in the night like stars that descend from the sky. Lovely… just lovely!
A bird’s eye view at the top of the tower is a must. It is breathtaking!
A lunch or dinner at “58 Tour Eiffel Restaurant” at the first floor of the Eiffel Tower is indeed an unforgettable experience. The restaurant has an ultra-contemporary décor with wall to wall glass window that offers a breathtaking view over the Trocadero, Palais de Chaillot, Seine River and the beauty of the Eiffel Tower’s structure.
My dinner experience was fantastic. The food was superb, the champagne was great. Just make sure to book ahead of time.
There’s a lot of passion in this city that is impossible not to fall in love. Every corner is a work of art from the past that radiates to the present and will forever surprise everyone in the future.
Paris Oh Paris! The city of lights… the romantic city… fabulous, luxurious, lovely… whatever they call you, one thing I’m sure, “Je T’aime Paris!”
