Help Me Understand Getting Up the Eiffel Tower

Jump to last reply

We will be in Paris in June. My teens want to go up the Eiffel Tower. I'm reluctant to prebuy tickets online in case we have crappy weather though I know the line for tickets can be a couple hours long. I also would like to walk up the stairs to the second level and you can't purchase those tickets online.

On their site, I see the elevator to the top will cost us 63 euros (family of 4)
Elevator to the second floor will cost us 39 euros
Stairs to the second floor will cost us 24 euros

My understanding is the stairs ticket line is much shorter than the elevator ticket line.
When you get to the second level, I believe you can purchase tickets there for the elevator to the top if you decide you want to go up. Is that so? Is that ticket line typically long? How much would that ticket be? I can't find that information anywhere.

Is there an elevator that goes straight to the top from the ground? Or do all elevators stop at the 2nd level and then everyone gets out and waits for another elevator to take them to the top?

Thank you!
