1. Cheap Tickets for the Eiffel Tower, (take the stairs)

Take the stairs to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower for a fraction of the price.  Not only will you save money but the queues are shorter and you’ll feel a fantastic sense of achievement when you reach the top.  With 670 stairs to climb, anyone who is relatively fit can achieve it plus there’s plenty of stopping places along the way to let people past if you want to take a break. If you want to make it all the way to the top, then you will need to take the lift from the second floor for an additional charge but that’s still  saving on taking the lift from top to bottom.

Check out the recent £24million refurbishment that includes the New Glass Floor on level 1 at the Eiffel Tower.

2. Eiffel Tower Tour; Skip The Queues

Look out for this Eiffel Tower Tour that is running through Attractiontix that allows you to skip the queues!  Here’s a chance to bypass the queues and enjoy a guided tour of this famous monument in small groups.  Ticket prices vary throughout the season so worth checking out promotions running on the date of your planned visit.

To book tickets go to Eiffel Tower Tour – skip the queues.

3. Eiffel Tower; The Early Bird

Another option to get ahead of the queues is to arrive early to this popular visitor destination. Worth checking out opening times on the day of your visit & aim to be there up anywhere before 40-60 minutes before that.  The great advantage with this option is that it comes with the added bonus of experiencing the Eiffel Tower in relative peace too.

4. Eiffel Tower; View For Free

Here’s a great way to enjoy the Eiffel Tower without spending money on costly entrance charges.  Why not watch the sun go down & the Eiffel Tower light up before your eyes when you camp down in the Parc du Champ de Mars that is located directly below the Eiffel Tower.  Pack a picnic tea and take in the carnival feel of the night as you watch the Eiffel Tower sparkle for 5 minutes every hour, (on the hour from night fall to 1am).

Follow our Louvre Guide that offers hints and tips to get the most from your visit to Paris.

5. Viewing the Eiffel Tower, (Montparnasse Tower)

The down side of climbing to the top of the Eiffel Tower is that you don’t get to see this iconic attraction within your view of Paris.  Another cheaper option would be to visit the Montparnasse Tower that offers you stunning views of the city the added bonus of relatively smaller queues.

More details available at Montparnasse Tower.

6. Viewing the Eiffel Tower, (Arc de Triomphe)

Climb the Arch de Triomphe for superb views of Paris that takes in the Eiffel Tower & attractions as far away as the Sacre Coeur.  The great news here is that children under 18 years are FREE of charge and offers you a chance to explore the biggest arch in the world.  Follow our Guide to the Arc de Triomphe for more information.

7. Viewing the Eiffel Tower, (Sacre Coeur)
