Paris / The Eiffel Tower receives tourists again this Thursday after having been closed for more than three months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the longest closure since World War II, more than a hundred days since mid-March.
After those three months of closure, exactly 103 days from March 13, the Eiffel Tower has resumed its usual activity today, although still partial, to the rhythm of a small batucada (Brazilian rhythm).
Measures to minimize risks
Until June 30, you will only be able to visit the second floor of the Eiffel Tower and only by the stairs, with an up (east stair) and down (west stair) route set to avoid crossing between people .
The use of a mask is mandatory from the age of 11 and there is a limited number of visitors both on its esplanade and on its floors.
On the esplanade and on the floors there are signs on the ground to invite you to respect the safety distance.
The use of the elevators to the second floor will be available again on July 1; depending on the health situation, throughout the summer access to the top floor will also be allowed, according to the website.
The longest closure since World War II
This has been the longest closure since World War II and its reopening joins that of other highlights of the French capital: the Musée d’Orsay opened its doors on Tuesday June 23 and the Louvre Museum opens next 6 of July.
During this time, The Eiffel Tower has taken advantage of its symbolism to join the solidarity shows towards health personnel and victims of the virus with the installation, for example, of a luminous sign that a couple of hours at night sent messages of support to affected.
