One of the world's most famous landmarks, the Eiffel Tower, reopens to visitors in Paris Thursday, following a three-month closure due to the coronavirus pandemic, APA reports citing Sputnik.

Strict hygiene and distancing measures will be imposed in order to ensure the safety of the monument's visitors and workers, including obligatory mask-wearing and the regular disinfection of public spaces. 

Visitors to the city's most famous monument won't be able to use the lifts until 1 July, to ensure a safe distance between people to limit the risk of infection. The very top of the monument will remain closed to the public for now.

France started relaxing coronavirus-related lockdown measures in late May, first letting parks and gardens reopen to the public. Museums were allowed to reopen starting 2 June, with the Louvre, one of the most famous museums in the country scheduled to reopen on 6 July.
