Eiffel Tower topped pre-Covid visitor numbers in 2023

PARIS: The Eiffel Tower in Paris welcomed 6.3 million visitors last year, its management company said Friday, more than came in 2019 before the Covid-19 pandemic.
Last year’s visitor numbers — up eight percent year-on-year — were juiced by events to honor its designer Gustave Eiffel 100 years after his death, the SETE operating company said in a statement.
The tower also added new offerings such as guided tours and celebrity chef-cooked meals in its luxury restaurant.
