A worldwide known symbol of France, the Eiffel Tower was built in 1889 for the Universal Exhibition, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution.
On the first floor you can discover the Tower’s history, technology and know-how in displays or take a tour of the sites and monuments of Paris, indicated on orientation panels. You can enjoy the services offered including a snack-bar, restaurant, post office and souvenir shops. For professional events, the reception room Gustave Eiffel is the most original spot to accommodate seminars and cocktails.
With its 360° view over Paris, the second floor is the perfect floor to take a photographic study of the city or to enjoy gastronomic French cuisine 125 meters above Paris in the Jules Verne restaurant. On the third floor, you can catch a glimpse of Gustave Eiffel’s life through representations of historical scenes with wax figures.
