La tour Eiffel

5 avenue Anatole France - Champ de Mars - 75007 Paris

Tour Eiffel - Invalides - 7e Arrondissement


A symbol of Paris and more generally of France, the Eiffel Tower was built by Gustave Eiffel for the 1889 World’s Fair. It is one of the world’s most visited monuments.
From the discovery of the historical gardens to the wondrous view over Paris from the summit, a visit to the Eiffel Tower inspires a wealth of emotion. Walking out onto the glass platform on the first floor offers the unique sensation of walking in the void! Monitors, touchscreens, displays, digital albums, and reproductions of objects reveal and explain often unknown aspects of the Tower in a museological circuit along the exterior walkway.
The view from the 2nd floor that stretches over the Louvre, the Grand Palais, the meanders of the Seine, Montmartre, Invalides, Notre-Dame, and much more is magnificent. It’s also here that you’ll find the Michelin-starred Jules Verne restaurant, alongside a macaron bar and take-away food stands, and boutiques selling official Eiffel Tower souvenirs.
Final destination: the summit! On its two levels, one enclosed and the other open-air, you can stroll around and take in the unique panorama of the City of Light from a height of 906 feet (276 metres) while sipping champagne. Here you can also visit a reproduction of Gustave Eiffel’s office.
A gastronomic destination in its own right, the Eiffel Tower is also a testimony to French-style excellence. In addition to the Jules Verne with Frédéric Anton at the helm, offering a fresh take on the great classics of French cuisine, the Brasserie (reopening in autumn 2020) will offer Parisian bistro fare as prepared by Thierry Marx. Visitors will also find take-away food stands from the esplanade to the summit.
