Visit the Eiffel Tower at night
End your day's sightseeing in Paris with incredible and unique views from the Eiffel Tower at night. Tours usually start near the Trocadero just as the sun goes down, from where you can admire the tower’s iconic shape against the dusky sky. A short stroll takes you to the foot of the tower, where you'll benefit from priority access to the lifts up to the second floor.
A different perspective by night
Arriving at the second-floor viewing platform, you'll enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of Paris through the floor to ceiling glass windows. The city at night is quite a different view to daytime Paris. You'll be able to spot famous landmarks among the twinkling landscape, such as Notre Dame, the Arc de Triomphe, the Musée d’Orsay and the streetlights and shops on the Champs-Elysées. You can also enjoy dinner or a glass of champagne on the tower at night. The two restaurants and champagne bar offer a dynamic and romantic setting for dining with family and friends or at a cosy table for two.
Fascinating facts about the Eiffel Tower
Your tour guide will share fascinating information about the tower’s construction for the World’s Fair in 1889, as well as other little-known facts about the monument. For example, repainting the tower takes 60 tons of paint and is carried out every seven years. Also, in summer, the Eiffel Tower is six inches taller than in winter. Its 324-metre height varies slightly according to the seasons. When the weather's hot, the metal expands, adding as much as 15 centimeters (6 inches)to the tower's overall height! Also, when it's very windy, the tower sways a little but it's unlikely you'll feel the six to seven centimetre (2-3 inches) movement in this eminently stable structure.
