Full description
See Paris in a different light with a combined skip-the-line Eiffel Tower ticket and a 1-hour illuminations cruise that you are free to take at your leisure.

First, bypass the notorious lines to purchase tickets for the Eiffel Tower, and stroll to the front of the queue. Admire the beauty of Paris on the 2nd floor of the Eiffel Tower with your friends, family, or as couple. 

Soak in the stunning vistas of the city and its monuments, such as the Sacre Coeur, Notre Dame, and Louvre Museum.

Then, see the “City of Lights” illuminated for the night on a 1-hour Illuminations Cruise down the River Seine. Boats depart from a pier just 5 minutes walk from the Eiffel Tower, and run every hour in winter and every 30 minutes in the summer. You can use your illumination cruise ticket at any time and day without changing the date.

Experience Paris after dark, and marvel at monuments floodlit for the night, such as the Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame de Paris, and many more. Cruise under romantic bridges, including the historic Pont Alexandre III and Pont Neuf.
