On Monday, Anne Hidalgo had to overcome her vertigo when inaugurating the first floor of the Iron Lady, now adorned with a glass floor which, we must admit, could make the faint-hearted a little giddy. In addition to the new look, the floor is now adorned with new ecological pavilions and an educational and entertaining museum tour. You will also find Paris Vélib' souvenirs including a giant P'tit Vélib' for the kids to colour! We have all been really looking forward to this new glass floor on the Eiffel Tower. It is now possible to visit the largest part of the monument and challenge your vertigo while walking on the transparent floor bordering the void.

Outside, you will discover the creation of a ramp enabling disabled access. The ecological footprint o...
