Visit the Eiffel Tower

Not to be missed!

There’s so much to see and do at the Eiffel Tower! Hidden within there are many a secret, and quite out of the ordinary, fun or even romantic places. Take a look of some of our suggestions and let your experience at the Tower be a moment quite unlike any other !

 - The new first floor

With its transparent floor and its glass balustrades, the 1st floor offers you a brand-new experience and a breath-taking view. Walk on the glass floor, 57m from the ground, and experience the unique sensation of stepping out into the void. And with its cultural installations (immersive film, museographic path…) & its seasonal activities, the 1st floor is now one of the most spectacular and attractive places in Paris.

 - Exploring Paris from the 2nd floor

With a panoramic view over Paris, you couldn’t really find a better spot than the 2nd floor for taking some photos for the album. It's also at this floor of the Tower that you take the lifts to get to the top.

 - To the top!

The really spectacular way up the Eiffel Tower is in the glass lifts which offer you a panoramic view over the extraordinary example of audacious architecture that this monument is. At the end of the 180 metre trip to the top of the Tower you’ll be rewarded with a stunning view of Paris and its monuments. Thanks to the two levels that form the top of the tower (one in the open air and the other under a roof), you can wonder around and enjoy the view just as much during the day as during the evening.

 - The Eiffel Tower, in the evening

Right up until 11 in the evening you can scale the heights and admire Paris by night ! After sunset, the Eiffel tower sparkles and bathes in golden light to welcome its night time visitors and offers a breathtaking view of the Paris lights.

 - Champagne at the top

Feel like doing something a little bit chic and original ? Well in that case stop off for a moment at the champagne bar on the top floor to enjoy a unique festive experience with a glass of champagne. What an elegant way to toast a sensational experience at the top of the Tower ! The bar is open daily from midday to 10 pm.

 - Why not on foot ?

Try another way of visiting the Eiffel Tower by choosing to take the stairs from the bottom to the 2nd floor. Wander around the centre of the Tower’s metallic structure at your own pace knowing that on reaching the top you can proudly say you’ve climbed 704 steps. And for the less sporty among you, you can choose to come down the tower on foot! The walk is more relaxing but every bit as magnificent.

- A chic picnic on the 1st floor

Why not treat yourself to a quick chic but no frills pick nick at the 58 TOUR EIFFEL restaurant where you can enjoy a spot of lunch high in the sky with Paris at your feet. Formula (without a reservation - ticket to climb not included) from 22.50€ - children's menu from 14 €.
