Advice on Paris sightseeing in April

Jump to last reply

I'm wondering if there is a one day pass where I can visit Eiffel Towers and Museum to avoid the long wait in line. I found the 2 day pass that must be consecutive days but not one day pass.
We will be arriving Paris from the US on a Friday morning and will be traveling with 3 young kids (age 2, 4, 7). I suppose they will probably be pretty jet-lag since it is around midnight US time when landed CDG. We'll probably head over to the hotel first and take a nap then head out in the afternoon. I'm wondering, is it better to go to the Eiffel Tower area on Friday afternoon and Notre Dame Cathedral area on Saturday morning to avoid the crowd? or it is better to do the reverse (i.e. Notre Dame Cathedral area on Friday afternoon then Eiffel Tower on Saturday morning)? We are planning to stay close to the Place Vendome area and we will be picking up our rental car on early Saturday afternoon to head over to the Loire Valley. We will still have time visit sightseeing Paris when we get back but it will still be a Saturday and Sunday. I'm wondering which is better to avoid the crowd. are there usually a long wait for the Eiffel Towers and museum in mid-April? Is there any way i can purchase the ticket in advance to avoid the wait at the site to purchase the tickets? I don't know how much patiences my kids have on waiting in line. i tried booking it online for the Eiffel Tower but the date is not available. Does that mean, I just can't do advance purchase but can still get up there if I don't mind waiting on line to buy the tickets at Eiffel. I thought it is a bit pricy to pay a 2-day pass when i probably ended up visiting one or two places. Or any recommendation on the time to visit the Eiffel Towel and the Notre Dame (I assume they want to climb the stairs) where the wait may be shorter on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.
When is the best time (ie less wait time) to visit Versailles Palace? Saturday or Sunday?
Thank you all in advance.
