The Eiffel Tower is déconfine sportingly

It will be virtually empty of foreign tourists since its re-opening. The Eiffel tower offers an experience to try, and a bargain for the Parisians, who can reclaim one of the symbols of France.

It's a safe bet that the queue seems to be less long, and a different atmosphere to those who dare to visit the iron lady, on the day of his déconfinement.

Closed since the 13th of march, the building is prepared to welcome new visitors in respect of the sanitary rules after the closure of the longest in its history since the Second world war. "This is a re-opening very progressive. The first week was intended to reassure our staff and visitors, that each (re)to take its marks and has a monument in the open air (as opposed to a museum for example)": justify Victoria Klahr, the communications officer of the operating Company of the Eiffel Tower.

June 25 to 30, the 2nd floor is reachable, but only by the stairs with the port of the mask is required with a thirty distributors of hydroalcoholic gel installed in the monument. "In normal times (outside of the Covid, so), we can accommodate up to 2,000 people, in principle, on the 1st floor against 750 in the current context, and on the 2nd floor, 700 people just in relation to 1 200 people usually" explains the young woman.
No intersection possible between those who ascend and those who descend. The ascent is by stairs and descent by the West in order to avoid that the flows do not intersect. A good physical training to keep in shape and good habits of exercises learned during the confinement.

700 steps!

The regulars of the ascension of the headlights, will be able to evaluate the extent of the ride. A little comparison is needed, with an average of 300 steps to climb to the top of the headlights French and a few examples: the Great Lighthouse Goulphar, 247 ; of Eckmühl, 307 ; of Whales, 257 ; of the Cap-Ferret, 258. It will take more than double, a little less than 700 steps to reach the 2nd floor of this structure metal mythical. "This formula apparently like since already more than a hundred tickets are reserved for the niche on Thursday morning. Visitors from Northern Europe have bought them as a priority (Germany, Belgium, etc), but there is also a strong demand on the part of the public close": welcomes it.

The ascent is done in about twenty minutes with a landing every 10 steps to catch his breath. The time to admire 360-degree, stunning views of the capital, but also the tangled web is so complex metal beams.

The structure weighs 7300 metric tons and represents 250 000 m2 of surface to be painted. In the course of its history, it has passed through many shades. Since the "red Venice" original "red-brown", "ochre-brown", "yellow brown" or "red brown". It was in 1968, that the color "brown Eiffel Tower" has been filed.

She has been chosen for its harmony with the parisian landscape, degraded in three tones, from the darkest at the bottom to lightest at the top. Arrived at the top, it is necessary to catch his breath and admire his shadow, which plays with the other monuments of Paris such as Trocadero.

In addition, the stairs are perforated ! It eliminates, in fact, all the people prone to vertigo. A beautiful building well worth a few drops of sweat.

Effective, only people in good health will be able to climb.. and as the average age of death of the corona is 84-year-old in France, nothing to worry about!

Born in Paris, the times I've ridden in 35 years, it was by the stairs, I said to myself that it was not very far, but the climb would be interesting. This year, 3rd floor inaccessible (too bad for the tourists), it's good, it can not rise higher than the 2nd floor. It is well when one is young, but at age 70 it would be difficult (I have a floor here). The view is interesting, but once I am filled.
It seems that the ticket cost the monthly salary of a worker at the beginning, when the Tower was completed. Then it became more affordable.
