    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.

    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.

    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.
