Long Lines - Queues, Paris: 25 reviews and 41 photos

  The Eiffel Tower seen from the Tour Montparnasse
by Pieter11

Standing on top of the Eiffel Tower is the most typical thing to do in Paris, of course! But itīs such a waste of time when youīre there for only a few days. Especially queing for the elevator can take over one and a half hours. The line for the stairs often is much shorter, but it also can take up to an hour, and it only takes you to the second floor.

Much better is to go to the Tour Montparnasse. Itīs closeby, itīs almost just as tall as the Eiffel Tower, itīs cheaper, it doesnīt have such insane queues and: FROM THE TOP OF THE TOUR MONTPARNASSE YOU CAN SEE THE EIFFEL TOWER TOO!

Of course, when you have the time for it, itīs really nice to climb it to the top, but if you only have time for a quick tour around the city, just do it the easy way!
