The Eiffel Tower, which is one of the most visited locations in Paris, would be reopening on the 25th of June for the public after more than 3 months gap, as informed by the operators on Tuesday. The site had been closed amid the coronavirus lockdown in France.
The landmark would come out from its longest closure since the second World War. The visitors allowed to the 10-tonne metal site would be limited initially and face masks would be made mandatory for all over the age of 11 years, as per the website of the Eiffel Tower.
As per the provided information at first, visits would only be permitted via the stairs and not by elevators so that safe distance could be maintained between people to curb the infection risk.
The top-level would remain unavailable right now, as the elevators taking visitors from the second to the topmost floor are small. The top-level might reopen during the summers.
The statement mentioned that the ground markings would be put in place to make sure that people maintain a safe distance from one another. Alongside that daily cleaning and disinfection of the public places at the tower would also be done.
The heritage was built in 1889, and as per the website it gets 7 million visitors annually.
The Eiffel website indicated that the re-opening of the online ticket would soon be communicated to all.
