Iconic symbol of Paris, the “iron lady” is probably the most famous monument in the world. Anyone who comes to the city of light wants to see it and climb to the top. Meet your guide at Trocadero, a place on a hill facing the Eiffel tower. From there, you will have the best and clearest view over it. It is the perfect spot for Memories guides to introduce you to the Lady of Paris. Memories DMC France took extra care for you to have the best English-speaking guides, experts on the tower and moreover on the history of all the monuments in Paris. This place is full of fun anecdotes and Memories guides know them all. For instance, you will learn how, when visiting Paris after he had won the war, Hitler, although he asked for it, couldn’t go up the tower. Also, when knowing the fame and witnessing the beauty of the tower, it’s hard to believe how ill-received it was in the first place. First building of its kind, made solely of metal, it seemed an insult to the complex and well adorned capital of France. Artists and intellectuals signed petitions to have it removed after its inauguration for the world fair of 1889. Authorities were wise enough to resist them and today, it is the proud symbol of the country.
Once you know more about the tower, you will be ready to go up. Of course our guide will lead you to a special entry, so you skip the long line and have more time to enjoy the view from every angle of the tower.
You will have the best possible view to appreciate the marvels Paris has to offer. From the Sacred Heart of Montmartre to the dome of the Invalides or the Arc de Triomphe, all the city is at your feet. Your guide will point out all the main buildings and tell you about them so when you stroll later in Paris, you will know what you are looking at. Then, unlike most companies that bring you to the 2nd floor and let you down from there, Memories wants to take you to the summit because we believe you deserve a full experience. After all, Gustave Eiffel himself had his apartment on top of his building ! You will then take the elevator to the highest point in the capital and you can bring that amazing memory home.
