The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has had far-reaching effects. Even the Eiffel Tower did not escape the impact the pandemic had, as it remained shut for around three months. However, on Thursday, people welcomed their most beloved monument as the Eiffel Tower was reopened for the masses, but with restrictions in place.
Being one of the most sought-after monuments all around the world, reopening the Eiffel Tower basically would invite an influx of masses, waiting to set their eyes on the monument in all its glory. The authorities managing masses around the tower have welcomed back visitors.
The tower being shut for over three months happens to be the longest period this esteemed tower has remained shut since World War Two.
Re-opening the tower calls for safety measures to be followed strictly as the dread of the Coronavirus still looms over humanity.
Those willing to access the tower which is 324 meters high will get to access the tower only. This access would be provided via staircases, and this would be implemented until early July. The elevators, at the moment, remain non-functional bearing in mind the safety considerations.
Furthermore, visitors are not allowed to go any higher than the second floor of the Eiffel Tower. Also, anyone over the age of 11 has to mandatorily wear a mask. The managers, however, seem to be hopeful about the situation and are looking forward to getting the Eiffel Tower fully functional later this summer.
