Is going all the way to the top of the Eiffel Tower a must?

Jump to last reply

We are going to Paris for the 1st time and our travel agent tells us that the Eiffel Tower is under construction and as a result there is only one available elevator to the top.
The only way they will allow you to the top is if you eat lunch there for a cost of 64 Euros.
Question: is the 2nd level good enough or is going to the top a must?
Apparently you have to book ahead and the tickets go very quickly...with our luck we will book it and it will be foggy and rainy that day!
Any comments are welcome!
