It may not be quite as romantic as the “City of Lights,” but Vegas’s pint-sized copy of Paris’s famous landmark is irresistible anyway. Bring a good dose of patience, because you’ll probably have to wait in line to buy tickets, then wait again for the elevators after running the souvenir photo gauntlet.
Then you’ll zoom up top to the windy observation deck, a dizzying 460 feet above the Strip. It’s a tight squeeze, but you’ll have all the time you want to walk around, take photos and maybe catch the Bellagio’s fountain show from on high. Sunset and after dark are the most popular times of day to ascend this mock tower, which is why you’ll pay a surcharge after 7:15 p.m.
Paris Las Vegas’s Eiffel Tower also has a gourmet restaurant and bar 10 stories above the ground, but most folks find it to be not nearly as good a deal as street-level Mon Ami Gabi restaurant, which has open-air terrace tables overlooking the Strip.
