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.

Thanks for the feedback!
The views from the top of the Eiffel Tower are breathtaking and youwill be able to snap some pretty great photos, even in the midst ofsuch a large concentration of people. Als…o, it's worth consideringthat journeying to the top of the Eiffel Tower is one of those oncein a lifetime activity that many people dream of but never get toexperience. Sometimes the value of the opportunity outweighs thereality. All in all, if time allows it and lines and crowds don'tfrighten you, I would encourage everyone to do venture to the topof the Eiffel Tower at least once. But if you're working within avery limited span of time, skip the long wait and the journey tothe top in favor of spending that precious half day of touring timemore wisely. There are much better views from: 4th Beaubourg (Centre Pompidou -with the advantage that it's both central and free. 3rd The Arc deTriomphe - that straight line East to the Louvre and West to laDefense is amazing. 2nd The towers of Notre Dame - completelycentral, but with one snag - you can't see Notre Dame from there.1st by a mile: the tenth floor of the SAMARITAINE department storeat the end of the Pont neuf. DO NOT MISS THIS. Go into the store atthe river entrance - that way you'll get the right building, thereare four but only one on the riverside - and find the elevator thatgoes to the 9th floor. From there, take the stair up to the roofterrace. You can buy a coffee (not expensive, astonishingly) andsee most of the view from there; or you can find the little spiralstair to the viewing platform and MARVEL. You are in the verymiddle of Paris, every major monument is in sight, most of themwithin a mile, and IT'S FREE.
the Eiffel tower was built for the World Exhibition fair in 1889.
It costed for childrens under 12 $6.30
Don't know , as the public can only get to the 2n stage by stairs
You can go all the way to the top floor.
Forever. There are no longer stairs above the second floor.
The time to get to the first floor, and from there to thesecond, is about two minutes using any of the two mainelevators (they make the trip from ground level to 2nd floor an…dback in 8 minutes). At 2nd floor level, you may have to wait a few minutes, as thecapacity of the third floor is limited (400 people max), and thelast elevator smaller.
yes there is an elivator in it.
Lift to 2nd floor: age 25+: 8.20€ 12-24: 6.60€ 4-11 and disabled: 4.10€ Lift to Top: 13.40€, 11.80€, 9.30€ Stairs to 2nd floor: 4.70€, 3.70€, 3.20€ How the… disabled are expected to get up the stairs, I can't think; but they are allowed one accompanying person at the same rate. Incidentally, prices are the same all the year round; these prices apply until March 31, 2012
In Paris, France.
I've been down the Eiffel tower it took about 12 minutes at a constant speed probably 15-25 depending on you speed If you mean cost wise? It's the same as taking the lift up
I don't know for sure, but it seems very unlikely that every one of the ~2.234 million people living in Paris has been to the top of the Eiffel Tower. As in every major city, …some people in Paris are pretty poor, even homeless, and they probably can't afford a tour of the Eiffel Tower.
