First, I had to wait more than one hour before entering the lift, despite having a ticket for a pre-destined time. When at the top, I realised that the view is almost just as nice from the second floor. Still, the view IS nice, and...More

Not to miss. If you want to go to the top It’s recommended to go during the day. And not to miss, go there by night as well to see the beautiful lights!!

The park itself is going through some remodeling. But seeing the tower is a must when visiting Paris. For the best photo opportunity go across the street to really get the tower in the background.

Worth spending the money and going till the top. Seeing this tower from inside is about appreciating the hard work which must have been done more than 125 years ago while building this giant structure. We went to the top of the tower which gave...More

I was really disappointed with the view. You wait in line a long time and when you get up there, there's not much to see. You'll be much happier looking at the tower from the park below than actually going up into the tower. In...More

We purchased all tickets 2-3 weeks in advance. That is all. But July is peak time. You can get tickets even the day before. But certain days will be all filled. No pressure. Hope it helps

Hello! I got my tickets from a Trip Advisor provider - Eiffel Tower Summit Priority Access with Host. I could not post the website, for some reason. Try it. Skip the line is worth it.

I’m not sure. Did not hear anything about that. There was some work being done around it but it did not stop access to the tower or the area.

There is no good way of doing this. In 5 days, you cannot reasonably see more than 2 cities. There are thousands of interesting sights in France, Germany and Switzerland.

Eurodisney to Paris for a daytrip to see Eiffel Tower (3 Replies)
We are staying at Eurodisney but would like to go into Paris for the day. We are near to the train station at Marne-la-Vallee. We want to go to the Eiffel Tower - does anyone know the easiest way to get there? We will have an infant with buggy and a five year old so the most straightforward way would be great. Does anyone know how long the queues are and what time would be best to avoid the worst. Once we have done this we will probably want to eat - any suggestions for child friendly...More

Get the RER A line from Marne la Vallee and get off at Charles de Gaulle Etoile (big station for changes). From here take the green line (can't recall the name off hand) to the stop called Champ de Mars/Tour Eiffel - Bir Hakeim). When you come out of this station head out and to the right and follow the road along the side of the Seine to reach the Eiffel tower.

Hi You can book tickets online but not sure when they're released. Might be already. Little tour operators like to snap those ones up though to sell with a package but no problem queuing on the day even if none available online.

Burj Al Arab is a popular place with many people, but think it might be a bit late to book a drinks package or a meal, but it will be an expensive night, you could try emailing them to see if they have anything available. Alternatively somewhere round the Madinat area where the waterways are might be nice, maybe ask one of the people who man the abras to do a tour (give him a tip!!!) as its meant for guests of Jumeirah hotels only and pop the question there. Am sure there will be many other...More
