Security at the landmark is to be beefed up
Paris's most famous landmark is to have a wall of bullet-proof glass put up around its base.
Heightened security has already been in place around the Eiffel Tower since 2012, during the European football championships.
While temporary fences were installed around it last June.
Reports say these barriers are to be replaced with a placement 2.5 meter-high bulletproof glass wall.
The wall is set to cost around €20m and will be installed in the autumn.
Deputy mayor Jean-Francois Martins said: "The terror threat remains high in Paris, and the most vulnerable sites, starting with the Eiffel Tower, must be the object of special security measures".
In a statement on Twitter, Mr Martins said the move was to 'simply improve the aesthetics of the safety devices':

But some other local officials are concerned the move could hurt tourism, as many visitors simply want to take photos under the tower.
The French capital, whcih has seen a number of terror attacks in the last 12 months, has recently launched its bid to host the 2024 Summer Olympics.
