Every year, over 7 million people travel from all regions of the world in order to visit the Eiffel Tower. Because it is such a popular sight, here are some tips involving admission that will help you get the most out of your visit to this splendid sight.
First, it is important to know the hours of operation. Obviously, you can view the tower at any time of day, but it has specific admission times if you want to climb it. For the most part, the tower is open every day of the year, except for certain holidays where admission may be restricted or the regular hours may be changed.
Usually, the mid- June through early September operating hours are from 9:00 am to 12:45 am. For the other months of the year, it is typically open between 9:00 am and 11:45 am.
Another tip is to know the cost of buying an admission ticket that will allow you to climb the stairs. For example, an adult who wants to climb the Eiffel Tower only has to pay 7 euros while an adult looking to use the elevator has to pay 11 euros.
Another piece of advice in regards to purchasing admission tickets is that you are actually able to pre-order and buy tickets online. If you pre-purchase tickets, you will go through the “Visitors with Tickets” line, which is usually much shorter than the regular line.
These online tickets must display the barcodes when on a mobile phone or when printed.
