I've dreamed about it a million times and seen pictures from all different angles, but nothing prepares you for the moment when you see the Eiffel Tower with your own eyes. It is absolutely beautiful, and in no way overrated. We arrived when the sun was setting, so we saw it in the daylight, lighting up, and then sparkling. Here are some pics from the walk heading towards and at the Eiffel Tower!
Jardin du Luxembourg
Hôtel des Invalides
Couldn't help but get a cheesy photo of me and the Eiffel Tower.
