Eiffel Tower, a la Delhi's Qutb Minar, reopens June 25

The French icon in Paris, the monument receives an annual footfall of seven million. The tickets will be available online in a few days. The cost of ticket for an adult is 7 euros. There will be sanitary restrictions in view of coronavirus epidemic.

PARIS, June 12: The Eiffel Tower, one of tourists' most favourite spots, the French icon, reopens to the public on June 25 after being closed for more than three months of coronavirus lockdown, the managers said. This has been its longest closure since World War II.

Located in Paris, the 'City of Light,' the tower was constructed to commemorate the centennial of the French Revolution in 1889 and as part of an exhibition. It was built by French architect Alexandre-Gustave Eiffel. Sometimes called tower of love, it is a major attraction for tourists in France as also across the world. The construction of the 300 m high wrought iron tower is superb. A similar construction is Qutb Minar in Delhi, India.

There will be a cap on visitors when it reopens and there will be restrictions in view of the coronavirus epidemic which is still raging. Face masks will be mandatory for all above the age of 11.

"At first, only visits by the stairs will be available," and not by elevator, Eiffel has announced. Visitors will have to maintain social distancing to prevent infection.

"To ensure that ascending and descending visitors do not meet in the stairs, ascent will take place from the East pillar and descent by the West pillar," a statement said.

The number of visitors will be limited per floor at a time.

The top level will remain closed for now, "since the lifts taking visitors from second to top floor are small. It might re-open during the summer."

The tickets will be available online in a few days. Once booked, you cannot change or exchange your e-tickets. Enter all names. Each e-ticket must be printed on a sheet of A4 paper, blank on both sides. You can also show your e-ticket on your smartphone, as long as the barcode can be scanned.

Ticket costs for adults above 25 years to take the 704 stairs to the second floor 7 euros, those aged 12 to 24 years pay 5 euros, and children 4 to 11 pay 3 euros. Admission tickets with elevator access to the second floor cost 11 euros, 8.50 euros, and 4 euros, respectively.

There are two entrances in the gardens to reach the Eiffel Tower’s esplanade: the entrance 1 (South) and the entrance 2 (East). To save time, prefer the entrance 2 (East), the organisers say.

The monument receives an annual footfall of seven million, mostly foreigners.
