FAQs for visiting the Eiffel Tower
How long does it take to visit the Eiffel Tower?
After you get through the lines, you could take the elevator up to the second floor and buzz that level in under half an hour. We don’t recommend it, but it’s possible if you’re tight on time. Allowing about 90 minutes to visit the Eiffel Tower is perfect.
How many levels does the Eiffel Tower have?
The Eiffel Tower has three levels open to visitors: the first floor, the second floor, and the summit. The first floor is only open to those climbing since the elevator takes you straight to the second floor.
Can you climb to the summit of the Eiffel Tower?
You can’t climb there, but you can reach the summit, and it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience we recommend to everyone visiting Paris. There’s nothing like being on top of the City of Lights! To get to the summit, you take an elevator from the second floor up to the very top of the tower.
What can you see at the summit?
The Eiffel Tower summit has amazing views of the city from a true bird’s-eye perspective. It also has a recreation of Gustave Eiffel’s private office, complete with wax figures. And let’s not forget the champagne bar where you can toast your summit experience. So it’s history, scenery, and bubbly, all in one.
