This wish probably makes it to every travel bucket list in the world. Climbing up the iconic Eiffel Tower is one of the topmost things to do in Europe. Use the lifts or climb the steps, that’s up to you as long as you get up there. And when you reach there, you will pause for a moment, stand in awe, staring into the horizon. That phenomenon is ‘clicking a mental picture’ because it is a view you would never want to forget.
