Eiffel Tower all set to welcome tourists from June 25

The iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris, which is also one of the most visited tourist attractions in the world, is all set to reopen for public from June 25. The attraction was shut due to the Coronavirus. This was for the second time since WWII that the Eiffel Tower was closed for more than three months.

The French government has started easing lockdown restrictions and started reopening places of tourist interests gradually. This time, when the landmark tower reopens after months of lockdown, everything would be changed for the visitors. People visiting the Eiffel Tower from June 25 will need to wear face masks and shields (all over the age of 11) along with maintaining social distancing.

The official website of the Eiffel Tower mentions, “At first, only visits by the stairs will be available and not by elevator.” The measure is taken to ensure a social distance between people to limit the risk of getting infection to limit the number of visitors per floor at a time.

The website further says, “To ensure that ascending and descending visitors do not meet in the stairs, ascent will take place from the East pillar and descent by the West pillar.”

As of now, the top floor of the Eiffel Tower will remain shut and might open during the summer, mention the website. It is because the lifts from second to top floor are quite small and won’t be able to maintain a proper distance.

To ensure people’s safety, there would be markings done on the floor with everyday cleaning and disinfection of public spaces at the tower.
