Eiffel Tower Tours
Two ways to experience the Eiffel Tower
You’re in Paris — you’ve gotta do it. Scale the Eiffel Tower to see one of the most famous views of the City of Lights. You can take the stairs with the world’s first Eiffel Tower Guided Climb or ride up quickly and conveniently by elevator. And don’t forget you can go even higher than the second level, right up to the Eiffel Tower summit.
FAQs for Visiting 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.
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.
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.
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.
