We’re starting this Traveling Tuesday with a magnifying glass on the Eiffel Tower! What a ride! Literally! The icon of ‘gay Paris’, it DID NOT disappoint! The structure itself tends to act as a magnet and draws the hoards straight from the Metro station. Although through the ages, the locals have wanted to tear it down, it remains the heart of the city. We found July to be crawling with tourists, waiting patiently in day-long lines for a trip to the top (The best decision of our trip to pass along to YOU: buy your tickets ON line and you don’t wait IN line).
