Buying Tickets for Eiffel Tower - I want to get it right!

Jump to last reply

I just tried to buy tickets to the 2nd level of the Eiffel Tower for May 19th and all but the last two time slots (after dark) were sold out so I plan to get up in the middle of the night to purchase them at 1:30 am CST (8:30 am Paris time) and want to make sure I get the process right.
Please let me know if this is correct.
1) Sign in at http://www.toureiffel.paris/en
2) Go to "purchase individual tickets"; enter date, 2nd level, number of tickets." Press confirm" appears at bottom of page. Press it and available times appear.
3) Select time when I want tickets.
4) Next page says add to cart.. If I click this
5) Next page shows details of purchase.

Is this the point at which I create an account by entering phone number, password, and country? I don't want to get to this point and find that an account should already have been opened in advance, though I haven't been able to find any information about how to do this.

Also, we would like to go before sunset so that we can see the various landmarks but be on the tower after dark. How long does it take from check-in to get up to the second level? Is there any sort of limit on how long we can stay on the second level (can't imagine how they would monitor that)?

Any ideas how long before sunset we would need to be on the tower to see the landmarks clearly, and how long it would take to pass through sunset until it's dark enough to see the lights of the city?

Or should we just go twice - once in the day and once after dark?

Thanks for information from those in the know!
