  • Admire the views of Paris from the 2nd floor of the Eiffel Tower


On the occasion of the World Fair in 1889, a major competition was launched in the Official Gazette. The challenge was to study the possibility of raising an iron tower on the Champ de Mars, with a square base of 125 sq. feet and 300 meters high. Chosen from among 107 projects was that of Gustave Eiffel. The work lasted two years, 2 months and 5 days.

Since its opening, visitors can access the floors of the monument via lifts, a veritable technical feat for its time. Carefully preserved, this exceptional structural heritage is an enduring testimony to the visionary genius of Gustave Eiffel.

You will enter first into the former bunker hidden under the Champ de Mars. A true privilege! You will then slip backstage to the surprising and impressive engine room of origin which still controls the elevators. Arriving next at the second floor, you will be greeted by the amazing and unusual view that awaits you. As a VIP, you will ascend to the roof of the prestigious restaurant Le Jules Verne to discover an unprecedented 360 panoramic view of Paris.

Very interesting, tour guide was very good! It was great as saved queuing in 5 hour queue! Plus got to go places where the general... public do not get to go! more


We have only made the reservations, havent actually gone yet but my travel agent told me City Discovery tours were very good.


We didn't book tickets to go up on our own, so this seemed like a great way to skip the lines, and it sure did! We were a bi...t concerned about being late, as the security checks took a long time to get in to the area. But our guide, Thomas was right at the north pillar waiting for us. And he was wonderful. Very friendly but very professional. Great tour. more

Worth it to save queuing. Our tour Gide was very nice.
