It is imposing on the skyline and just as impressive up close. The views of Paris are just amazing. Would have to be one of the most iconic structures in the world and you have to climb it once in your lifetimeWe learned so much...More

A must see and visit but I think sight from first floor is enough. There is too much trouble if you want to see the top floor.

This was the first time I could not simply wander under the Eiffel Tower. Now it is enclosed within barriers. Very sad that we live in such a world that takes away a casual stroll and turns it into an ordeal.

Evrybody tells you, you have to have a reservation long time in advance. But if you are able to use the stairs up to the second floor, we got a ticket up to the top (3. floor by elevator) if we arrived. 15min waiting time...More

Threats of terrorism and the need for extra security have ruined the once open and free iconic views. Was very sad to see this.

In the summer you can go to the top at dark. Weather was hot but the view from the top is amazing! Wear comfortable walking shoes and shorts or jeans.

Well last year you could walk right up to it but now you have to go thru security. At least they have free wi-fi. It is still free to get in.

This was the best part of our trip. We only went up to the 3rd floor and I think that has the best view anyway. Stunning view! We went via a tour group and there were zero lines.

We purchased tickets to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower in advance and avoided the long lines to purchase tickets. The wait to go to the top was reasonable and once at the various levels the views were magnificent. Looking out over Paris...More

When I was there, had similar problem. Arrived early, stood in line and passed in without any troubles. But it can be a coincedence. You still can try, and I'd recommend you to try, byt a final desigion is up to you.
