Eiffel Tower

I am going for lunch at the Eiffel Tower as part of a guided tour and my ticket is only valid for the first floor, is there a ticket office on the 1st floor that I can buy a ticket to the top or do I have to buy one on the ground level?

Once you're on the first floor, I don't think they'll check your ticket to travel up to the 2nd floor. The problem, however, is that the line for the elevator on the first floor gets really long, because they can only let people on to the elevator if people get off on the first floor.

I believe you could walk to the second floor without any problems.

There is a ticket office on the 2nd floor for going to the top.

So far as I know, you cannot get on the elevator going up from the first level, only going down.

The stairs require a ticket, so you'll not likely be able to use those to the second level.

Unless you plan to leave the tour, you won't have time to go to the top and rejoin the group.


Note Section III, Article 16.
