Eiffel Tower Makeover
Tour d’Eiffel Refresh
The Eiffel Tower could get a makeover as Paris bids for the 2024 Olympics.
Mayor Anne Hidalgo is proposing a 15-year, €300 million ($318 million) upgrade, to include better elevators, increased security, refurbished lights and an improved visitor entrance, reports CNN.
The Eiffel Tower welcomes about 6 million visitors a year and makes about €82 million ($87 million) in revenue. About €13.7 million ($14.5 million) is spent on upkeep. The renovation plan would raise that to €20 million ($21 million).
The mayor’s office said the refurbishment would strengthen the quality of the tourist offerings in the French capital, which may help Paris beat Budapest and Los Angeles for the 2024 Games. The International Olympic Committee votes in September.

Eiffel Tower – Description
The tower is 300m high; antenna up to 324m.
Tallest building globally until the Chrysler Building was completed in 1930.
This has to be the most famous structure in Paris, an early skyscraper that was not liked by many when built but now symbolises Paris, and France, to the world.
