Valentine's day : your most beautiful love messages projected on the Eiffel Tower...

Monday 10 february 2020

A symbol of romanticism, the Eiffel Tower has always been the privileged witness of lovers who declare their love. To celebrate Valentine's Day, the monument has put together a lovely program: light projections, a themed photocall, the Parisian Bubble lined with heart-shaped balloons, and special love notes on post-its®... something to make your Valentine light up.


Impassioned declarations of love, a beating heart...

What more beautiful memory could there be than seeing their declaration of love posted on the Eiffel Tower?!
The most beautiful messages, followed by the hashtag #EiffelinLove, will be shared on the monument’s official Twitter account and on all the screens installed in the Tower.
For the luckiest lovers (note, only messages of less than 80 characters will be eligible), these declarations will be projected on the Eiffel Tower, on the Trocadero side. 
Finally, the word "love," translated into ten languages, will be paraded there from 7pm to midnight, accompanied by a big red animated heart. 


Photocall and love notes on the 1st floor

This will be wafting like sweet perfume throughout the 1st floor, in the atrium of the Pavillon Férié... Lovers will be invited to pose in front of a photocall themed for the occasion. Next to it, a stylized Eiffel Tower will be "stuck" on the glass wall of the atrium. Post-its® (heart-shaped, of course!) will be offered by hosts to allow couples to leave a trace of their visit to the Tower by writing love notes and declarations on them.


A souvenir to declare (or maintain!) your undying love

A silver or gold lace necklace, cuff bracelet, eau de parfum or pretty cases for ladies; cufflinks, an Eiffel Tower card game for gentlemen; or a chocolate bar for the gourmets... Visitors will be able to find many surprises in the Tower's official boutiques. 

Balloons under the Bubble and chocolate at the champagne bar

The interior of the Parisian Bubble, the temporary restaurant on the first floor, will be decorated with helium-filled balloons, while at the champagne bar at the top, a heart-shaped Lenôtre chocolate will be offered for the purchase of a glass of champagne.

Online purchases can be made 60 days before a visit and up to 3 hours in advance.
