We purchased Skip-the-Line passes before getting to Paris. Better money has never been spent. On our last night in Paris we purchased wine, cheese, different prosciutto, olives, etc. and had an evening picnic in one of the small parks within 30 meters of the tower. Absolutely amazing! Every hour they set the lights of the tower to flickering and we... More

Walked up. Que was too long for elevators. Truly is an amazing view - area is busy with visitors. Beware of street vendors trying to aggressively sell souvenirs - very uncomfortable experience.

I went to Europe few times but this is the first time I got to visit Eiffel Tower. I heard the line will be horrendously long so I bought the ticket online. I went to buy online about a month in advance but the day ticket was all sold out and the only remaining is at 10.30pm above. I planned... More

I know it is really touristy to do, but you must! Beware of the gypsy's trying to get your signature or mess with you in some way. They are everywhere. I had to wait in line for about an hour. It was well worth the short wait. I, however, learned I was afraid of heights at the top it is... More

You can not visit Paris and not visit the Eiffel Tower. I do recommend that if you are visiting during season please purchase tickets prior to arriving. I visited last year in November (off season) and walked right up to the ticket both and purchased tickets. This time the line wax around the block and when you have a limited... More

Buy your tickets in advance and miss out on standing in line for an hour-do have to say the line to get the ticket is the shortest of the lines-oh yes, that is just the first of several lines-especially if you go to the top-which you will. Not go to the top? really?-You are going-it's high but get over it.... More

The Eiffel Tower is truly something! I had a tour up to the every top and the views were just breathe taking! When the tour had finished I headed down onto the grass area with a few bottles of red and some pringles and enjoyed the light show as well as making some new friends! Was a great night and... More

Couldn't get tickets in advance online so walked over one night around 8:30 pm and stood on line for the elevators for about 1 1/2 hours to get tickets which I guess was reasonable given how popular the Tower is. The elevators took us to the 2nd "floor" and if you have a fear of heights, beware! It's pretty hair... More

We stand in line for more than an hour in the afternoon and decided to quit. The same night , after dinner just before midnight, we noticed that the ticket office was still open. In five minutes we had our ticket and we stand on the second floor from the Eiffel tower where we enjoyed the sparkling lights at midnight.

Best advice I can give is book in advance! Having got there early, we queued for 90 mins for 1st stage, 60 mins to get to top (not worth going to top) and queued to get back down. Queues still very long in the afternoon. But when in Paris, you have to do the Eiffel Tower!!!!
