Tickets for Eiffel Tower

We're looking for tickets for the end of September and they seem to be all sold - does anyone know of a "third party" website that sells tickets?

There are many third party "skip the line" tickets you can find easily with a web search, though prices tend to be exorbitant.

But, there are other options.

First, you can keep checking the official website for your dates as often additional tickets become available.

If you're fairly fit and don't mind a lot of stairs, you can plan to take the stairs to the second level and, once there, if you wish, purchase supplemental tickets to the summit.

You could check availability (via the official website) for the "Behind the Scenes" tour which (for not much more than lift tickets) will get you an underground tour, some history, and to the second level where, once again, if you wish, you can purchase tickets to the summit.

Many people have reported great success by arriving at the ticket offices 30-60 minute ahead of opening and not having to wait too long in line, versus later in the day when the wait can be a couple of hours or more.

You have to keep checking - I'm in the same boat as you. If I can't get them ahead of time, I plan to be at the ET before it opens. I had a 20 minute wait last time and that's doable.

I booked the behind the scenes tour listed above because I thought it skipped the lines. However, once I paid, the voucher reads "Please remind that Cultival does not have priority access to avoid queues." The good news is that the tickets are completely refundable up to 2 weeks out.
