Depending on the size of the crowds on a given day, you should anticipate a wait of approximately 1-2 hours for the first elevator ride to the second level and another wait of about $-1 hours for the second elevator ride to the top. Unlike in the U.S., line jumping apparently really is a sport in Europe, so stay close to the people in front of you because if you hesitate or let up on your guard for even a moment, someone WILL hop in line in front of you and, unlike Americans, most European tourists will not intercede and point offenders in the direction of the end of the line. Because the wait is almost always lengthy, I have three key pieces of advice to offer to those determined to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower: 1.) Get there early. 2.) Take some reading material or something to entertain yourself while in line because you$re going to have a long wait. 3.) Eat before you go or take something to snack with you. Another option is to walk/ climb the first part of the trip. You can climb until you reach the elevator that will take you to the top. this can cut some time off the wait...or like I figured out keep you entertained and take the exact same amount of time as it its to wait$$its up to you, I never regretted walking up And its cheaper. $.my brother did regret waiting.
