Buy your tickets from our online ticket office and beat the queues, especially if you’re heading to the top of the Tower. Our online ticket office is where you can find the best prices for our e-tickets for lifts to the top or the 2nd floor. By buying time-stamped e-tickets, you’ll save time at the Tower! You can book your visit up to two months in advance: and we definitely recommend booking for the summer months (July and August), when the Eiffel Tower is at its busiest. For visits on a whim, our online ticket office sells e-tickets until 3 three hours before your visit time, that same day (while stocks last) !
Tickets for the stairs (the second floor), and stairs and lift (2nd floor by stairs and then lift to the top) can only be bought at the Eiffel Tower!
Have you already visited the Eiffel Tower by day? Try it by night! The Eiffel Tower is open until 23:45, and even 00:45 in summer.
There are two entrances to the Eiffel Tower’s esplanade: the South entrance and the East entrance. You will pass through the first security checks at these entrances, and they also give you a chance to explore the recently landscaped gardens. Tip: to save some time, please prefer the East entrance, which is often less crowded.
Make sure you get a copy of our visitor guide, available at multiple locations (ticket offices, lifts). It will help you find your way around (available in French, English, Spanish, and German)!
Log on to the Eiffel Tower’s free WiFi (_WiFi_Tour_Eiffel)! Just enter your email address on the online form that appears when you connect. It’s an easy way to share this special time with your friends and family on social media.
When you come back down from the second floor, you can take either the stairs or the lift to visit the first floor and then get back to terra firma.
