My buddies and I (3 total) are going to be in Paris and we want to go to the top of the Eiffel tower. I have read and researched that you can stop at the 1st and 2nd floor, we have all talked about it and we really don't care to see what is there we want to head straight to the top. I went online to the eiffel tower website to order tickets, however, they are sold out. From my understanding we can still purchase tickets at the Eiffel Tower. We will be going on Wednesday, May 21st. Any suggestions on what is the best time to go? Morning, midday, night? Also, is the cost on the website the same price as purchasing tickets on the spot? Also, what is a good estimated wait time to the top with the lines?
I have also read that you can walk from the 2nd floor to the top. My friends and I are fit and not opposed to doing so. Would this be a good idea?Edited: 31 March 2014, 18:41
