France says Eiffel Tower to reopen on June 25

Paris’s Eiffel Tower, one of the most iconic landmarks on the planet, is set to reopen to the public on June 25.

The Eiffel Tower has been closed for three months due to the coronavirus pandemic, the longest closure since World War II, officials said in a news release announcing the date.

“As the situation evolves, the lifts taking our visitors to the second floor can be quickly put back into service under appropriate conditions, with a very limited number of persons on-board,” according to the release.

“The top level remains closed for now to avoid promiscuity situations, since the lifts taking visitors from second to top floor are small. It might re-open during the summer.”

Visitors over the age of 11 will be required to wear masks, and the number of visitors on certain floors will be limited, Eiffel Tower management said.
