    Hi Mataharis,

    The Eurostar train station in Paris is Gare du Nord. To get from Gare to Nord to Eiffel Tower, there are several options on the trains. See my article on Gare du Nord, on Metro tickets and RER train tickets, and be sure to study the Metro & RER map, which will be very useful.

    Options for getting from Gare du Nord to Tour Eiffel include:
    - RER B to St Michel Notre Dame, transferring to RER C (direction Versailles or St Quentin) till Champ de Mars Tour Eiffel station
    - RER E to Saint Lazare/Haussmann, transferring to Metro 14 direction Olympiades to Madeleine, switching to Metro 8 direction Balard until Ecole Militaire
    - Metro 2 direction Porte Dauphine till Charles de Gaulle Etoile (Arc de Triomphe), transferring to Metro 6 direction Nation until Bir Hakeim.

    This trip will take about 25-30 minutes, including transfers.

    Best regards,
