Eiffel Tower structure

A good hint for your visit to Eiffel Tower : About 7 millions people visit the place every year... Elevators are often very crowded and you may have to queue for hours before getting a ticket... If you have no vertigo and if you are fit enough take the stairs ! Very few non parisian know about it but stairs access is open between the elevator tickets counters - It takes 7 to 10 minutes to reach the first floor and another 7 minutes to reach the second floor.
