Eiffel Tower Reopens For Tourist Visits After Three Months Of Closure
Tourists will now be able to visit the Eiffel Tower after a three-month-long closure due to coronavirus. However, visitors to the monument won’t be able to take the lifts until 1st July.
They would have to use the stairs to ensure a safe distance between people. This is to limit the risk of infection. Also, the very top of the iconic monument will remain off-limits to the public for now.
The 10-tonne metal landmark located in France will emerge from its longest closure since World War II. This time around, the opening comes with limited visitor numbers, and mandatory face masks for all over the age of 11, said the Eiffel Tower website.

Ground markings are in place to ensure people keep their distance from each other, while there will be daily cleaning and disinfection of public spaces at the tower.
The monument, completed in 1889, receives about seven million visitors every year; around three-quarters of them are foreigners.
France is one of the world’s most visited countries with booming tourism industry. However, this sector of its economy was badly hit while it was under lockdown. To halt the spread of COVID-19, hotels, restaurants, museums, and theatres were closed for three months.
French capital’s most famous landmarks such as the Louvre Museum are due to reopen on 6th July. Another major Landmark in France, Palace of Versailles, reopened earlier this month.
