How is the real Eiffel Tower on a normal day? Forget the romantic tower portrayed in movies that’s peaceful, quiet and green. When we had our picnic at the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, we were constantly bothered by street vendors trying to sell junk toys, unlabeled wine and cigarettes. Another interesting fact is that the grass was very dirty and not well kept. At the end of the day we saw these vendors run away from the local police, but they’d always come back. The next time that you plan a trip to Paris, quickly get your tickets to go up the tower for sightseeing and go find another spot for a picnic.
