How to Choose an Eiffel Tower Tour

How to Choose an Eiffel Tower Tour

The Eiffel Tower is arguably Paris’ best-known landmark, and there are plenty of ways to discover the architectural marvel. Depending on your needs and preferences, you can ascend to its summit, skip the lines to save time, visit after dark for romantic views, and even enjoy a gourmet meal as part of your tour. Here’s how to explore.

For the First-Timer

If you’re visiting the Eiffel Tower for the first time, make the most of your trip to the world-renowned icon: Venture all the way up to its lofty summit, perched 906 feet (276 meters) above ground level. You won’t just have access to the tower’s three main levels as part of your admission—you’ll also enjoy a rare, bird’s-eye view of Paris.

For the Budget Traveler

Even if you’re keeping a close eye on your wallet, you can make the most of your visit to the Eiffel Tower. While pricier tours include access to the tower’s summit observatory, you can book a tour that takes you to the Eiffel Tower’s second floor. The level is located 377 feet (115 meters) up and still offers exceptional Paris panoramas.

For Those Short on Time

The Eiffel Tower can attract formidable lines—particularly during the summertime high season. If you’ve only got a short time in the City of Lights and need to make the most of your limited sightseeing schedule, then book a priority-access tour. You’ll pay slightly more for the privilege, but you’ll also prevent any hassle or stress.

For the Romantic

Paris is known around the world for its amorous reputation, and few landmarks personify that better than the Eiffel Tower. For a romantic way to discover the landmark, visit after dark and admire the city’s glittering lights from on high. Alternatively, book a gourmet dinner at one of the Eiffel Tower’s exceptional restaurants for a meal to remember.
