Eiffel Tower Ground View : Elevator and structure details

About the Eiffel Tower (Extract of the official website) : Visitors may climb the stairs or take the elevators to go up the Eiffel Tower. The stairs are open to the public and go up to the second floor (115 meters). Three elevators (north, west and east pillars) go up to the first and second floors. Only one or two will be in service on any given day due to maintenance and security reasons.  To reach the top of the Tower (276 meters), visitors must take another elevator from the second floor. During the peak visitor seasons, be forewarned that the wait may be consequential. More info : refer to Eiffel Tower official website.
