As Paris' top landmark, it’s no surprise that the Eiffel Tower comes with a long entrance line. But by booking a skip-the-line ticket in advance, you can spend more time up in the tower than in line on the ground. Here are a few ways to do so.
Guided Skip-the-Line Tours
Get more out of your experience at the Eiffel Tower by visiting with a guide, who can provide insight into the 19th-century landmark’s history and architecture. You’ll get priority access to bypass the main queue and also receive insider tips about the best viewpoints and how to fully enjoy all the tower’s features.
Skip-the-Line Eiffel Tower and River Cruise Combos
With the Eiffel Tower’s location on the banks of the Seine, it’s easy to combine a visit with a cruise on the river — a fun way to see waterfront sights such as the Notre Dame Cathedral and Paris’ many elegant bridges. You’ll receive skip-the-line access to the tower’s second level and a ticket for a one-hour cruise, which can be used the same day or a different day, giving you flexibility.
Evening Visits with Skip-the-Line Access
By visiting at sunset or after dark with a skip-the-line ticket, you can enjoy priority access and a new perspective on the Eiffel Tower and the city’s evening lights. For an even more enhanced visit, opt for a VIP dinner experience that includes Champagne and a 4-course meal at 58 Tour Eiffel, the gourmet French restaurant on the first level of the tower.
