Without a doubt, the Eiffel Tower is one of Paris’ most recognizable landmarks. For many people, it’s thrilling the first time you see the Eiffel Tower. And for first-timers, a visit to Paris would not be complete without a trip up the Eiffel Tower.
If tickets are sold out for your dates of travel, you can book a tour for skip the line access to the Eiffel Tower. Here are three highly rated tours that allow you to skip the line at the Eiffel Tower.
The Louvre is the world’s largest art museum. This building was once the home to French Kings, including Louis XIV. During the French Revolution in the 18th century, the Louvre was converted to a museum.
The Louvre is massive and you could literally spend days here. However, you can see the highlights (Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, and the Winged Victory) in just an hour or two.
HOW TO SKIP THE LINE AT THE LOUVRE:
There are several ways to avoid waiting in a long line to get into the Louvre.
- Purchase the Museum Pass. This allows you to skip the ticket line but you may still have to wait in a much shorter security line.
- Book your tickets online in advance. On the official Louvre website, you can purchase your tickets in advance. These cost €17 and the website advertises less than a 30 minute wait if you purchase your tickets in advance.
