The Eiffel Tower in Paris is the busiest pay-to-enter monument on the planet (hosting almost 7 million visitors each year).

Which means it’s busy!

Only the first and second levels of Tour Eiffel are wheelchair accessible. The top is not.

So, unless you are really keen on getting a wheel on the Eiffel Tower, I would just view it from the ground (which means you avoid the queues too – a great saving on your limited Paris time).

The view from the ground is good (especially from the Champ de Mars).

However, the best view of the Eiffel Tower is from the Palais de Chaillot on the opposite side of the Seine.

And the best way to reach the Palais de Chaillot is by bus or taxi to Trocadéro. The main platform of the Palais de Chaillot is wheelchair accessible (there is a ramp on the right of the steps leading on to the platform).

However, the direct route down to Pont d’Iena, where you cross the Seine to the Eiffel Tower, involves steps. There is a longer way round though – via Av. Albert de Mun and  the gardens outside the Aquarium de Paris.

Trocadéro can also be reached by simply walking/rolling down Av. Kléber after seeing the Arc de Triomphe.
