With our skip-the-ticket-desk-line access, you’ll avoid the long general entry lines, gaining faster access to this privileged vantage point overlooking the City of Lights. Your guide will accompany you to the dedicated observation deck on the second level, from where they’ll point out the marvels that lay at your feet.

Your expert guide will make sure you are in the right place at the right time for the best views of the city from this magnificent structure, entertaining you all the while with stories from past and present.
