February 2018


From 3pm to 11.45pm on February 14th, the Eiffel Tower is celebrating that most romantic of days with a special event: An Unforgettable Valentine’s Day 2018. Social media photo comps, competitions, and special offers... There’s plenty going on to delight your soul mate.

Say cheese! And it’s in the (gift) bag…

On the esplanade and on every floor of the Eiffel Tower, hosts and hostesses will be inviting visitors to create a romantic memento by sliding their faces into specially designed frames. They will then be invited to share they photo on Twitter and Instagram, with the hashtag #Eiffelsaintvelentin, and be in with a chance to win a prize. Five winners will be chosen at random, each getting a gift set with two mugs, two keyrings, and two miniature Eiffel Towers.

Special offers and gourmet treats...

Flyers will be handed out offering a 25% discount in the Eiffel Tower’s official stores, valid from 3pm to 11.45pm on Valentine’s Day.  A sparkling offer completes the event: 20% off a champagne duo in the champagne bar at the top of the tower, as well as in the cafes on the 1st and 2nd floors.
