Eiffel Tower to reopen on 16 JulyEuropost
The Eiffel Tower will reopen on 16 July after several months of closure due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Paris landmark's operator announced on Thursday. Visitor numbers will be limited to 10,000 a day to meet social distancing requirements, fewer than half of their pre-Covid levels, operator Sete told AFP.
In a normal year, the tower gets 7 million visitors.
All floors of the monument will be accessible to visitors, except some areas where renovation work is ongoing.
The re-opening marks the emergence of the 10-tonne metal landmark from its longest closure since World War II. It was shut down for more than three months during the first Covid wave in the spring of last year, and then again in the autumn.
