Special safety instructions
The historical nature of the Eiffel Tower, its layout and the very large numbers of visitors, means that special safety measures have to be taken to protect the visiting public. On exceptional occasions either all or a part of the parts open to the public may have to be closed and the contents of bags or packages checked. Oversized luggage as well as animals, with the exception of guide dogs, cannot be allowed into the tower. There are no luggage lockers.
