Overview of visiting conditions and our food and drink options for this summer 2021.

The teams at the Eiffel Tower are delighted to be able to welcome visitors back again since July 16. Covid-19 safety measures are still in force: masks are mandatory for all visitors 11 years and older throughout the entire Tower (outside and inside), and as of 21 July, all visitors 18 years and older must present a valid “Pass Sanitaire” (proof of vaccination, negative test result or proof of recovery). Hand sanitizer is available for visitors on all floors of the monument. Reduced capacity allows for social distancing in the lifts.

To avoid queuing at the ticket office and enjoy your visit to the fullest, we advise visitors to opt for purchasing their date- and time-stamped tickets online in advance. Lift access tickets (top and second floor) for dates through to August 29 are available at our online ticket office. So are stair access tickets (second floor), which go on sale seven days before the actual date of the visit. Only combined tickets (stairs to the second floor then lift to the top) are currently available only at the monument's ticket office. : a tour guide in your smartphone!
