Tips for Visiting the Eiffel Tower

The best time to visit the Eiffel Tower depends on whether you're willing to share the experience! Flash your Eiffel Tower tickets during the summer, between June to September, and you're likely to witness big crowds and long lines.

For a calmer experience with fewer people and shorter lines, the best time to visit the Eiffel Tower is between October and December, or between January and March.

Nighttime is a great time to visit the Eiffel Tower, too. The lights glitter and sparkle at 10 pm, but climb the Tower before twilight, and you'll experience it both at sunset and when it gets dark.

Your Eiffel Tower tickets get you access to a number of levels. The structure is composed of three levels; the first floor, second floor, and the summit (top level).

On the first floor, you'll find the museum exhibits, a glass floor that's perfect for photos of the street below, ever-changing exhibitions, a plethora of souvenirs, and restaurants. The second floor boasts even more eateries, an array of shops, and an observation area.

Many people don't know that there is also a secret military bunker underneath the Eiffel Tower's south pillar, or that when Gustave Eiffel designed the Eiffel Tower, he also included a private apartment at the top.

It's almost impossible to miss the Eiffel Tower, and even easier to get there! The Eiffel Tower is accessible by car, by bicycle, or by public transport. Just take the Metro or RER services to the Champ de Mars/Tour Eiffel stop, hop off, and walk for less than ten minutes along the Seine.

By bus, you'll need line 82 or line 42. You can also travel to the Eiffel Tower by boat along the Seine.

Your Eiffel Tower tickets will buy you however long you'd like to stay inside, but most people spend between two to three hours inside. Remember, the climb up can be quite intense and you might want to stop to catch your breath at several points. You can pretend to be admiring the views while you do this.

It usually takes about 30-45 minutes to climb the stairs up to the second floor. Plan to spend at least 1.5 hours on the first and second floors, or 2.5 hours if you also plan to visit the top.

There is a restaurant located 125 meters above the streets of Paris, on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower. The Jules Verne is a one-Michelin-starred restaurant that sweeps across three successive rooms. The views over the Champ-de-Mars, Quai Branly, and Trocadéro from here are probably the best in the city.

The experience comes with a price tag, as sadly your Eiffel Tower tickets don't include such luxuries. The five or seven-course dinner tasting menu at the Jules Verne will cost about $250 per person.

For a quick and tasty snack or lunch, you'll find buffet options on the esplanade, first, and second floors. Got something to celebrate? Jazz it up at the Champagne Bar at the top!

Children aged 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult inside the Eiffel Tower, but there's plenty to impress the little ones – not least the views.

The top of the tower and the stairways might not be suitable for toddlers, or people with reduced mobility in the event of an emergency evacuation.

Tickets overview

  • This iconic Parisian structure was originally built to honor the centennial of the French Revolution in 1889

  • Not only a symbol of France, the Eiffel Tower contains over 100 antennae to broadcast radio and television around the world

  • The Eiffel Tower has three levels, each with unique views of Paris – you can reach the first two by by foot

  • Two restaurants can be found on both the first level and second level of the tower

  • The Eiffel Tower is illuminated by 335 projectors every night for a spectacular light show

  • Designer Gustave Eiffel included a small apartment for himself at the top of the tower

As one of Paris' most-visited sites, tickets to the Eiffel Tower should always be purchased in advance, especially during the high season.

While you don't need a ticket to see the exterior, a ticket is required if you want to enter the Eiffel Tower itself and experience the breathtaking views of the City of Lights from the first, second, or third levels.

  • For an enriched experience, a guided tour is a great option.

  • If you want to take a self-guided route, entry tickets are available with access to all three levels, including the summit.

  • The Eiffel Tower is open late – you can always book a ticket in the evening for a sparkling view of Paris

  • It's always windy at the top of the Eiffel Tower, so dress accordingly

  • The Eiffel Tower is open late – the last admission is 22:45 for most of the year – and even later during the summer

  • There's a post office in the gift shop – pick up a postcard and have it mailed from the Eiffel Tower with a unique postmark

  • Once you've reached the top, reward yourself with a glass of champagne at the bar located at the summit

  • Try to visit on a weekday evening in time for the hourly light show

About: Eiffel Tower

When the Eiffel Tower was completed in 1889, it was the tallest building in the world. With 18,000 metallic parts and 2.5 million rivets, it was a true feat of engineering – and the perfect centerpiece for that year’s World’s Fair. But Alexandre Gustave Eiffel's tower had as many haters as it had fans.

However, over time, the Eiffel Tower has become a universally beloved icon; it's now the most-visited paid tourist attraction in the world. The fact remains that no trip to Paris is complete without a visit to the Eiffel Tower.
