So from L’Arc de Triomphe we actually walked to the Eiffel Tower, down by the fountains (we stopped to soak our feet) and up to the tower. The line ups were too long to actually go up and we were too damned tired to climb that mother. After a rest we dragged our assets to the nearest Metro and went home to pass out. We did come back later that night to see the tower lit up. They also have a light show every hour on the hour which lasts for five minutes each time.
