Day 78: Fantastic Views From the Top of the Eiffel Tower

Tuesday, June 22, 2010
After lunch at our new favorite Greek place, we went back to the Eiffel Tower and stood in line for an hour to go up to the 2nd and top levels.

There were pirate souvenir vendors all over the place so bought a bunch of little Eiffel Towers. Since we were waiting for so long we had plenty of time to do some hard negotiating with the souvenir vendors. We got four of one size for 6€ (down from 3€ apiece and 8 keychain size for 1€ (down from 5 for 1€).

One vendor was mad at us and said that we were bad Italian people. I kept asking him if he was happy and he said "No, you are bad people and I don't like you.".

There were great views from the top of the tower but so many people that it was hard to get a good position with the camera. We also had to wait in line to come back down. We were there from about 1 pm to 4 pm.
