Would You Stand on a Glass Floor 200ft Above Ground? The Eiffel Tower Gets $38.4 Million Makeover!

The Eiffel Tower has undergone $38.4 million renovation. Paris’ greatest tourist draw now boasts solar panels, shops, restaurants, a new museum, and a vertiginous glass floor. Visitors can now enjoy dramatic views of the 57-meter (187-foot) drop from the 125-year-old landmark’s first level. This transparent walkway has already proved a hit with visitors lining up and lying down to take selfies with the ground below as a stunning backdrop.

Paris’s mayor, Anne Hidalgo, opened the new attraction saying it would help bring back some magic to a city that’s been criticized for disappointing foreign visitors.
“I hear that Paris has lost its shine and attractiveness,” she said. “It’s not true.”

The new floor, she added, proved Parisians could re-invent their city “without ruining our history.”
