Dining at the Eiffel Tower

Combo Tickets

With millions of tourists visiting the monument every year, ticket queues and waiting lines tend to be really long and could setback your trip by over 2 hours. With skip-the-line Eiffel Tower tickets you can beat the crowd and get direct access to the first/second level (depending on your package) and the Summit (optional).

Why go for these tickets?

  • Priority access to the second floor: With skip the line tickets, you have the option to whizz past the ticket line and secure an early entrance to the second-floor lift to the summit. As the summit can only be accessed by a lift, it gives you a better chance at making it to the top as you can skip past long ticket queues at the counter. 
  • Fastest access to Eiffel Tower: With skip the line Eiffel Tower tickets, you can skip the long waiting times at the ticket counters and head straight to the stairs or elevators, depending on your package. This makes it the fastest way to gain entry to the monument. It is the best ticket option if you’re on a time-bound trip. 
  • Local guide: Depending on your ticket, you’ll also be joined by a professional guide who’ll accompany you till the second level and guide you to the summit lift.

Recommended Experiences

Whizz past long waiting lines, and head to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower with your tickets. Then, go for a fascinating city tour and enjoy a 1-hour Seine River Cruise as you soak in the many Parisian sights.
A decision you might have to make is to choose Eiffel Tower stairs vs lift tickets. If you choose to climb the steps, you have a better chance of avoiding the long queues that one might find with opting for lift access. Your ticket may also include a guided tour.
With over 1,700 stairs spread across three levels, climbing the Eiffel Tower on foot is an experience of a lifetime. The stairs offer some of the best views of Paris from varying heights. If you choose to take the elevator, you can head up to the 2nd floor directly and then based on your ticket, visit the summit. The steps are not ideal for those who are short on time, but benefit in terms of smaller crowds, while lift access sees larger crowds.

Why go for these tickets?

  • Climb at your own pace: The biggest advantage of the Eiffel Tower stair tickets is that they save a lot of your waiting time. The stairs are usually not crowded and can be accessed in under 30 minutes of purchasing the ticket.
  • Fast track Eiffel Tower access: The Eiffel Tower has three elevators - The North, East, and West. You can skip the line at the Eiffel Tower lift by purchasing skip-the-line tickets.
  • Optional Summit Access: Situated at a jaw-dropping height of 276 meters above the ground, the summit is the highest accessible point of the Eiffel Tower. The summit can only be accessed via glass-walled elevators from the second floor and require a separate ticket. While choosing your Eiffel Tower stairs or elevator tickets, make sure you add these optional tickets to get the best eagle’s view of Paris.

Recommended Experiences

With a professional guide, climb to the 1st and 2nd floors of the Eiffel Tower as part of a small group and get a close look at its internal structure and architecture. Upgrade your ticket to visit the summit via elevator.
At a whopping 276 meters (905 feet) from the ground, the Eiffel Tower Summit is one of the highest points to observe the city from as you look down to see a "miniature" Paris city thrive under your feet. With a glass-walled elevator, the ascent is also nothing short of exhilarating. You'll also get to visit the secret Eiffel Tower apartment that was once Gustave Eiffel's office. Composed of realistic wax characters, this office evokes the era when this architectural masterpiece first came to life.

Why go for these tickets?

Using the telescopes at the summit, you will be able to spot various other famous Parisian landmarks, all while enjoying a light breeze. It is truly an experience no one should miss.
