"After more than eight months of closure, the Eiffel Tower opens from July 16," a statement said.
The so-called combined tickets, which allow you to go up the stairs (to the 2nd floor), and then by the elevator to the top of the tower, will initially be sold only at the box office. Other types of tickets can be purchased at the box office or online.
The tower will be open seven days a week from 09.30 a.m. with the possibility of lifting until 10 p.m. (elevators on the tower work only until 11.45 p.m.). Wearing a mask will remain mandatory for all visitors from 11 years. In addition, visitors are asked to keep their distance.
As it was reported earlier on July 10, the share of Delta strain infections exceeded by 50% among all coronavirus cases in France. Now the Delta strain has become dominant in the country. Due to the deteriorating epidemic situation in the country, France is introducing mandatory vaccination of medical staff and a number of other categories of workers working in medical institutions.
