The flame on the Eiffel Tower

The information is revealed by the Reuters agency, citing a source close to the file: the organizers of the Paris 2024 Games plan to install the Olympic flame on the Eiffel Tower, next year, to expose it before the Games. According to the same source, the project is in the pipes for two years. But it was not specified when the announcement would be made, nor if the torch would remain on the Eiffel Tower during the Olympic Games. The only certainty is that it will be impossible, for technical reasons, to install it at the top of the building. Because of the presence of antennas at the top of the tower. As a reminder, the Olympic flame will arrive in France on May 8, 2024, aboard the three-masted ship “Belem”, after a 10-day crossing of the Mediterranean from Greece (photo above). It will dock in Marseille before starting its relay across the country.
