Insider tips

Avoid the queues

As you know, Paris is quite the popular holiday destination. Plan ahead if you want to jump around and see the Eiffel Tower from lots of angles. It’s easy to buy tickets online and go straight to the top — but if you’re looking to do Paris on the cheap, remember to plan waiting time at major monuments into your itinerary.

Watch your stuff

Lots of travelers are looking for a cafe or restaurant nearby these views, where they can relax and regroup away from the crowds. While all the major tourist areas are safe enough, tourists tend to let their guard down as soon as they order a café au lait. As always, zip up your purse and watch out for thieves.

Opening hours

If you decide to get up close and personal with the Tower itself, it’s conveniently open 365 days a year. From mid-June to early September, opening hours are from 9:00AM to midnight. During the rest of the year, from 9:30AM to 11:00PM.

Eiffel Tower: Second Floor Priority Access reviewed by Stella

⭐⭐⭐⭐ Kasia was amazing!! Fun and super educational
My mom and I were a bit late (a good 15 min) and they still accommodated us. We were very grateful! Kasia was very friendly and taught us so much history that I wouldn’t have known otherwise. She shared facts that don’t readily come up on google when researching the history of the tower, so very cool to learn 🙂 I would absolutely recommend and wth book again in the future!
