Eiffel Tower


The history of the Eiffel Tower is well known. It was erected in 1889 on the occasion of the Universal Exposition but it was not built to be a definitive structure because its  dismantling was already scheduled at the end of the event.


Fortunately Eiffel Tower has remained in place and now it is the true symbol of Paris and of all France.

The visit

To visit the Tower it is essential to book in advance a ticket that allows you to skip the long (often very long) queues. It is possible to opt for the climb to the middle floor or for the climb to the top of the Tower, with obviously different costs. The ticket can be booked here where all the other useful information for the visit is also available (timetables, prices, etc.).

At the pre-established time one meets at panels on which the time of visit is indicated. Once you are on the first floor in the elevator, it is possible to continue the climb up to the top of the Tower (obviously if the ticket purchase provides this option). In this case, however, it is necessary to overcome another queue, often long. From the top of the Tower you can admire a long stretch of the Parisian panorama, with the Seine and the Trocadero.


How to get there

RER C, stop Champ de Mars-Tour Eiffel. Metro Line 9, Trocadero stop.
