Ah, Paris…What are your first thoughts when you hear that word? Is it love, romance, the Eiffel Tower, Carrie and Big? I think all of those things. My first trip to Europe and I was beyond excited. Luckily, before leaving, I met up with a friend of mine that lived in Paris. He was telling me all about the different arrondissements, or districts, and which ones he enjoyed most. Click here is a map of things to do in each of the arrondissements.
But, the words that came out of his mouth next is when I stopped in my tracks. “Have you gotten your Eiffel Tower tickets yet?” Um, what do you mean? I need to buy the tickets before I get there? To break it down, the Eiffel Tower is like going to Disney World without pre buying tickets. Around 7 million people visit it a year, so there is not really a down time.
THE #1 THING TO DO IN PARIS IS: BUY SKIP THE LINE TICKETS FOR THE EIFFEL TOWER!
You’ll pick a time to arrive, cut the line of people that are buying their tickets, and get right up to the front of the line. In essence, it easily saved us an 1.5-2 hours that day in the heat. Because you know what the biggest buzzkill on a vacation can be? Waiting in line in the scorching heat. Mission accomplished. Got my tickets online and bought the skip the line tickets for an additional fee. To purchase your tickets visit: https://www.eiffeltickets.com
