You heard the famous phrase “To see Paris and die” it means that someone got finally the chance to attain their ultimate dream of seeing the city and can now die happy, people today find that is true at the end. Because they are so disappointed by the city, they will want to die after visiting Paris. It’s not the same city that they had known and seen in movies, read about in books, and heard about it all their lives. And it turns out, this is an international phenomenon.
11. Long lines to the Eiffel Tower observation deck and matted grass on the lawn
Before visiting Paris, everyone has those dreams about seeing the most important thing in the city which is the Eiffel Tower. many tourists also love to go to the observation deck. The first disappointment is when you get into the long line of tourists that have the same idea of visiting the tower too. The second problem you get into is when the guards take time to check you at the entrance like you are at the airport again. You’ll find that you already spent many hours in the line before you finally get to the deck.
After all of this stress, you would like to have a rest and have a picnic on the grass. Just wait before doing that. Because some other disappointing discoveries are coming to your side. As an example, the perimeter of the lawn can be surrounded by a fence if there is some kind of an event, or even worse, a public demonstration. Maybe you will get some space on the lawn but the grass is all matted and missing in spots.
The best thing is to enjoy the view of the Eiffel Tower from a distance. This is why we advise you to go to the Montmartre district and climbing the Sacré-Cœur stairs. And this is the perfect observation point that you can have in the entire city.
