Eiffel tower stairs...

Jump to last reply

We are going to Paris from 5-11th August 2016, and we are definitely wanting to climb the Eiffel Tower while we are there!

We arrive in Paris at 1:30pm on Friday 5th. I am hoping to check in to our hotel, have some dinner and then go up the tower in the evening. The only issue is that myself and my partner are a bit conflicted. I am all for booking tickets on the official website for a time slot, but he really wants to walk up to the 2nd level for more of an experience.

My question is: if we didn't book tickets, and just turned up on the Friday evening at around 6/7pm, would the lines be horrendously long for the stairs? I know that no one can predict exactly what the waits would be like, but i am just after an estimate of what it is usually like on a Friday evening in the summer :)

Thanks for your advice!
