It used to be that the only way for a visitor to dodge the notoriously long line at the Eiffel Tower's elevators was to book a table up to three months in advance at the Paris monument's Le Jules Verne restaurant, where dinner can run $279 a person. But by the end of this year, a new online reservation system will allow you to skip the wait and soar right up to the 906-foot-high observation deck—without spending an extra euro. The $18.25 fee is the same as it is for those stuck waiting their turn down below. toureiffel.fr.
