Questions involving Getting to the tower

What is the quietest moment of the day?

We advise you to visit the Eiffel Tower at off-peak times. The number of visitors depends on the time of the year, the weather conditions and the day of the week but queues are usually shorter in the mornings and in the evenings.

You can choose to visit the Eiffel tower during the day or at night. We advise you to choose both options because they are very different experiences but each one is as fantastic as the other. You can buy your ticket in advance from our online ticket office to avoid having to queue at the ticket office at the Tower.
