Your visits

There are 2 entrances in the gardens to reach the Eiffel Tower’s esplanade: the entrance 1 (South) and the entrance 2 (East), which does give you a chance to explore the recently landscaped gardens. You will pass through the first security checks at these entrances. Tip: to save some time, please prefer the entrance 2 (East) in the gardens, which is often less crowded.

In order to access the elevator, after the security check, please go with your clients and e-tickets to the EAST or WEST pillar. The group will need to have the tickets legibly printed (1 ticket per page) on A4 format, with the complete barcode (not reduced).

Access the « visitors with tickets » entrance, marked with a green flag, at the latest at the time indicated on the ticket to get to the ticket check point. The access to this point is granted in the order of arrival of the whole group in possession of a ticket for the current time slot.

Because of the Eiffel Tower structure, visits need to start by the highest level. On the way down, we recommend you to visit the lower floors, giving you the opportunity to benefit from historical and cultural contents on our Monument. The 1st floor in particular will allow you to discover our glass floor as well as the cultural path and a large souvenir shop.
