See the lights of Paris from the 2nd floor of the Eiffel Tower on a 1.5-hour guided evening tour. Skip the long lines to access Gustave Eiffel’s iconic Tower, and marvel at the “City of Light” sparkling against the inky darkness of the sky at night.
What to Expect
Skip the long lines to access the Eiffel Tower at night, and experience the magic of Paris from a privileged perspective.
Meet your English-speaking guide at the Museum of Architecture at the Palais de Chaillot for the best views of a world famous icon. They will tell stories from the past and present of the Eiffel Tower, before leading you past the famously long lines to ascend to the 2nd floor.
Enjoy spectacular views of Paris illuminated for the night, with bird’s-eye views of many of the city's most famous monuments, such as the Sacre-Coeur and Notre-Dame de Paris.
One of mankind’s engineering marvels, the Eiffel Tower was built for the 1889 World Fair. The iron lattice work now stands as a proud and much-loved icon of France. It is still the tallest structure in Paris. Look down at the city from the observation deck of the 1,063-foot-tall monument, and experience its illuminations from a perfect vantage point.
