How To Skip The Line At The Eiffel Tower

1. Book Eiffel Tower Tickets In Advance

Eiffel Tower tickets sell out months in advance, so it if you plan on going all the way upto the summit, make sure you purchase your tickets online, in advance. This way, you spend queue time only for security, after which you can glide through easily; all the way atop.

2. Take The Eiffel Tower Steps

The Eiffel Tower step tickets are cheaper and more easily available, though they are a steep task. However, if you’re up for trodding up the Eiffel Tower, why not? There are 330 steps to the first level and 339 steps to the second level. This way you can experience the charm of Eiffel Tower with every step.

3. Have A Meal At The Eiffel Tower

There are two dining outlets in the Eiffel Tower - 58 Tour Eiffel on the first level, and Le Jules Verne on the second floor (only dinner). If you choose to have a meal at either of these restaurants, you can enter the tower through a separate entrance, away from the crowd.

4. Eiffel Tower At Night

While the waiting lines for the Eiffel Tower during the day are painstakingly long , the queues are lesser by night. With tourists and families thronging the lines, it’s easier and better sedate to see the tower at night.
