Eiffel Tower to reopen to public on Jun 25

Eiffel Tower to reopen to public on Jun 25


The Eiffel Tower, one of the most visited sites in Paris, will reopen to the public
on Jun 25 more than three months after shuttering in France's coronavirus

lockdown, its operators said on Tuesday (Jun 9).


The 10-tonne metal landmark will emerge from its longest closure since World
War II with limited visitor numbers at first, and face masks mandatory for all
over the age of 11, said the Eiffel Tower website.


"At first, only visits by the stairs will be available," and not by elevator, it said,
as a means of ensuring a safe distance between people to limit infection risk.


"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,"
added the website, with a limited number of visitors per floor at a time.


The top level will remain closed for now, "since the lifts taking visitors from
second to top floor are small. It might re-open during the summer."


The statement said ground markings will be put in place to ensure people
keep their distance from one another, with "daily cleaning and disinfection
of public spaces at the tower."


The monument, completed in 1889, receives about seven million visitors
every year, about three-quarters of them from abroad, according to
the tower website.



The tourism industry of France, one of the world's most visited countries,
has taken a hard hit under a lockdown to halt the COVID-19 pandemic,
with hotels, restaurants, museums, and theatres closed.
