I wanted to investigate the accessibility of this most famous monument in all the world. I was impressed and encouraged by what I experienced. It was an overcast day on my visit last year, but we were rockin’ and rollin’ on the second platform.
Recommended Bus lines are Bus 82, stops : Tour Eiffel or Champ de Mars, Bus 42, stop : Tour Eiffel, Bus 87, stop : Champ de Mars, Bus 69, stop : Champ de Mars. Bus line 82 would be convenient for folks staying in the 6th and 7th arrondissement (very popular among my friends) and the route passes by Les Invalides – yet another popular tourist destination. Here’s a partial image of Bus line 82.
