As we didn't get to go up the Eiffel Tower yesterday it was our main plan to climb up it today. So when we woke up we went straight there before it got too hot. It was only a short walk to the tower and when we got there it was beautiful. We walked through the gardens before it, taking photos and chatting. We reached the Eiffel Tower and it looked even bigger up close. We lined up to take the stairs and luckily it didn't take too long. It was a bit hard going up the stairs but ...
