I understand that it is said that the only place in Paris where you can’t see the Eiffel Tower is under the said Tower.
It’s not true.
You can’t help seeing it even there. I spent two hours nearly waiting below the tower, with a sick student who was unable to ascend, for the rest of the group to get back.
I had a cup of very bad coffee and got chatted up by a very offensive American. I got accosted by beggars.
But I could always see the tower.
Another myth busted.
