I am in Paris for the first time for two days and want to see the eiffel tower. Any suggestions as to the best place to view it from at night? I read of TA that going on a boat cruise gives a good view and on a guided tour today heard there is another tower that has a restuarant/bar at top that you can go up for less money, with less lineups (think it may be Tour st. Jacques??) that has a good view of the Eiffel tower. Also anyone know if the elevator work is done at eiffel tower now or status of getting tickets for the behind the scenes tour? thanks in advance for any advise!
