I've not been to Paris for years until I recently had the chance for a 24 hour business trip. Only after I'd booked the hotel did I realise how close I was to the Eiffel Tower. It was an opportunity not to be missed as I've not been up the tower since 2001. It was a beautiful spring evening with lovely light, so I queued for just 10 minutes and took the lifts to the top. A carousel made an interesting night time subject too. It is a spectacular sight and well worth visiting.
