Ascending the Eiffel Tower for its breathtaking views is one of Paris's undisputed thrills—just ask the 7 million visitors who do it each year. Though a sweeping view of Paris from one of the city's emblematic sites—the Arc de Triomphe, Sacré Coeur, the towers of Notre Dame—is a must for a vast majority of tourists, oppressive crowds and ridiculously long waits can diminish the experience and squander valuable vacation hours. If you're willing to try something new, or push a little farther afield, there are spectacular views to be had with fewer (or no) crowds, and unparalleled cultural or dining experiences thrown in as well.
