"Eiffel Tower" La Tour Eiffel Tip by southgator

La Tour Eiffel, Paris: 600 reviews and 1,066 photos

Just wanted to share a lesson we learned recently at the Eiffel Tower. It stays open until midnight, so we decided to go at night. After waiting in line over 30 minutes to get on the elevator, you have to wait in another line about 30 minutes for the second elevator. So, an hour to the top, an hour back down. By this time, the metro stops running, so we waited about 2 hours for a taxi amongst a large group of irate and exhausted people, some with little kids. It was not fun. I would recommend going first thing in morning, plus I think the view would be alot better.
