Route 1:
Take RER LIne A from Marne-Le-Vall�e to Gare du Lyon. Walk the short distance to Gare d'Austerlitz, crossing the Seine on the Pont Charles de Gaulle. Take RER Line C (with the destination shown as towards Versaille-Rive Gauche & Saint Quentin-en-Yvelines) to Champ de Mars-Tour Eiffel.

Route 2:
Basically as Route 1 but remain on Line A until Chatelet les Halles. Then walk over the bridge to pick up LIne C at St Michel-Notre Dame. (The advantage of this route is that allows you to see Notre Dame cathedral and/or visit the Latin Quarter where you'll find loads of cheap restaurants).

Route 3:
Basically the same as Route 2 but, if you're feeling lazy you can take Metro Line 4 (for 2 stops towards Porte d'Orl�ans) to get you from Chatelet-Les Halles to St Michel-Notre Dame.

Route 4:
Remain on RER LIne A until Charles de Gaulle Etoile. Take Metro LIne 6 and alight at Trocadero. This is alongside the Palais de Chaillot and is an excellent way to approach the Eiffel Tower (which is directly across the Seine, over the Pont d'Iena). Some of the best photographic opportunities, of the Eiffel Tower, are from the Palais de Chaillot with the fountains in the foreground.

Route 5:
Only take RER Line A as far as Nation. Then take Metro Line 6 to either Bir-Hakeim or Trocadero.

Out of that lot, I'd choose either Route 2 or Route 4. If you break your journey, on Route 4, at Charles de Gaulle Etoile, you'll find that you come out of the station alongside the Arc de Triomphe, at the top of the Champs-Elys�es.

I have to agree with Buenchico that approaching the Eiffel Tower from the Palais de Chaillot on the North of the river is the best way to approach it.

The Eiffel Tower is just to the South of the river, and after seeing the view from the Palais de Chaillot on the North of the river you can do the short walk OVER the River Seine to the base of the tower.

Here is a picture taken from near the Palais de Chaillot showing the Eiffel Tower. Although you cannot see it in the picture the River Seine is in the "dip" just in front of the tower.

If you want to go UP the tower (and who doesn't) note that although there are lifts up 3 of the legs, the queues can be huge.

One of the legs has stairs you can walk up (you still have to pay but not as much as for the lift).

You may think it is a lot to walk but my family and I did it (and my wife had Athsma) and we walked up to the second level.

You feel very pleased with yourself having walked up to the second level.

You can only get a lift to the very top.
