This is the case at the Eiffel Tower in Paris, now offering visitors not holding the famous health pass to get tested directly on site, thanks to the opening of a testing center set at the foot of the Iron Lady.

On site, visitors not holding the health pass can take an antigenic past. If the test is negative, they can visit the Eiffel Tower – as it reopened this past July 16.

But how much is this screen test? The test is free for the French. But foreign tourists not living in France must pay €25.

According to SETE director general exploiting the Eiffel Tower Patrick Branco Ruivo, 1,500 tests a day are planned, he told AFP.

Furthermore, we remind you facemask-wearing is compulsory to visit the Eiffel Tower. As for lifts, the gauge is limited to 50% in order to keep social distancing.
