There is currently only 1 lift operating so the queue is truly unbelievable no matter what time of day. You can prebook for an allocated time but at the moment you must book a few months in advance due to demand and limited capacity. So brave the queues we did one evening at 9pm. We waited 1 hour which apparently wasn't too long! Once on the way up this magnificent and iconic structure, the waiting became a distant memory. The view is amazing from the top and as the sun set and the Parisian lights twinkled it was an amazing sight. Don't miss it. The view from the second level is also very good. To be on such an iconic and recognizable building is an almost surreal experience which must be experienced to be believed.
