Even if you arrive before opening time, you won’t be alone. That said, there is more chance of shorter queues at mealtimes, on foggy days, in winter, or late at night when the coach tours have gone. Therefore, these priority advance tickets save you time with fast-track security checks and no need to queue at the Eiffel Tower ticket offices.

Tickets for the Eiffel Tower sell out months in advance, so if you want to go all the way to the top, get your tickets in advance online. This way, you only have to queue for security and then you may breeze all the way to the top.
