This was one of our favourite attractions in Paris. Yes the line is long and you can expect to wait up to an hour and longer. I suggest get there early in the morning (bring your croissant and coffee to have in line there are lovely bakeries dotted everywhere ) to minimise your wait time. There is an option to buy skip the line tickets priced (€30-€45) on numerous sites across the internet but these are costly and considering that if your 26 and under (bring ID) its only €4.00 and less then €10.00 if your older to pay on site I didn't feel it was worth the added cost.
The attraction itself is fascinating make sure to read the history outlined on displays in the entrance, then you can really appreciate what you’re looking at. As for the steps up and down ,I see other visitors found them tough to climb , I guess this is a matter of opinion but honestly they are absolutely fine, and we are no means fitness fanatics or athletes , it’s more a case of getting dizzy as they are spiral steps then suffering from exhaustion on the accent. The staff are friendly and the line moves quick enough considering the crowds of visitors and of course it’s easy to get to from the metro.
