As part of its refit, the 57 meters high first floor of the Eiffel Tower now boasts a glass floor on which visitors can walk and look down through. In addition, floor-to-ceiling glass barriers tilting outwards have replaced the old wire safety fence that surrounded the first floor to prevent suicides. Covering half-hectare, this new first floor also features shops, restaurants and a museum telling the story of the 125-year-old monument as well as the life and career of Gustave Eiffel.
Open every day from 9.30am to 11.45 pm, till 12.45am in summer. Admission : €9 to the first and second floor, €15 to the top.
