Eiffel Tower

 

Eiffel Tower
— Famous Paris Landmark

The Eiffel Tower is one of the most recognized structures in the world. Built by Gustave Eiffel in 1889, the tower stands at 1,056 feet — making it the tallest monument in Paris. On a clear day, you can see up to 40 miles away.

For the best view of the Eiffel Tower, walk up to it through the Champ-de-Mars Gardens. Go early or later in the day, when it's not so crowded.



Panoramic Paris Views
Each of the Tower's three levels offer spectacular views of the city.
Costs vary, depending on which level you take. We recommend you take the elevators to the top of the Eiffel Tower for the most panoramic views of Paris.

Elevators to the Top
Stairs will take you up to the tower's second floor, but not the top. Three elevators go up to the first and second floor. To reach the top of the Eiffel Tower, you must take another elevator from the second floor. Be prepared to wait, especially during peak tourist season. Pass the time people-watching — it's worth the wait!



120th Anniversary
In May 2009, the Eiffel Tower celebrated its 120th Anniversary with a series of FUN celebrations taking place throughout the year.
