What’s a trip to Paris without an unforgettable visit to the Eiffel Tower?

  • Tickets for July will be released in batches from the 25th of May in the morning, and then in the following days (online sale for one day starts on a D-60 basis). Which means that on Friday 25th May, all e-tickets for July 1st until 24th are released. Release of tickets for July 25th will follow on May 26th, for July 26th on May 27th, etc.   
  • Tickets for August will start to go on sale on June 14th, and will also be released in batches, on a D-60 basis. Tickets from 1st to 13th of August will be released on June 14th (from 8.30am til 10.30am), tickets for August 14th will follow on June 15th, etc.

Head straight for the lifts without queuing for tickets

E-tickets save you time and get you up to those unbeatable Eiffel Tower views without delay! You can order tickets to the top or tickets to the 2nd floor via the lift. With an e-ticket, you get specific lines for security checks, and can head straight to the lifts without having to queue at the ticket office thanks to your reserved time*. 

Take your time visiting the Eiffel Tower, but your first stop should be the highest point permitted by your ticket (the top or the 2nd floor), and then work your way down by stair (only from 2nd floor) or lift in your own time and at your convenience. Plan to spend about half an hour on each level. 

*Events beyond our control and breakdowns notwithstanding, you are guaranteed a place in the lift within 30 minutes of the time shown on your ticket. Please arrive 30 minutes in advance so you have plenty of time to get through security.
