Yes, the Eiffel is open in the rain. One of the things on our list to see in Paris was the Eiffel Tower. Our cousin gave us a great hint: purchase tickets prior to visiting Paris. We had tickets for Sunday morning and when we woke up, it was raining…..let the adventure begin! There was 20k race starting at the same time as our tickets. The base of the Eiffel Tower was start/finish line and was filled with thousands of runners. Here is what it looked like from the mid-point of the tower.
Eiffel Tower in the rain was a fun experience. We realized our umbrellas weren’t big enough, so we now have cool Paris umbrellas! Thank goodness the store in the Eiffel had some for sale!
Hint: Definitely buy tickets prior to visiting the Eiffel Tower. Saves time in line. However, you might want to combine that with the weather report!!! What is cool though is that I have a blog about the Eiffel Tower in the rain.
