The best places to photograph the Eiffel Tower


If you have visited Paris, you're sure to have a million pictures of the Eiffel Tower because how else can you prove that you've been to Paris? I mean it's just impossible to come back from a trip to the city without a few dozen Eiffel tower images in your camera roll. This was my fourth or fifth visit and while I'm totally over actually climbing the tower since I crossed that off my list a decade ago, when I visited for the the first time. I don't think I'll ever do it again because it's definitely a one time thing for me and I don't have that much free time (3 hours minimum) and even if I did, I'd rather laze around by the Seine and eat cheese and fruit instead of unnecessary cardio. Also, there's nothing more iconic than the Parisian skyline WITH the Eiffel tower, so what good is climbing the tower because what exactly are you photographing when you're literally standing on top of one of the most photogenic landmarks in the world?
