The Eiffel Tower has unveiled a new glass floor that will turn the heads - and stomachs - of the millions of tourists who flock to Paris' best-known landmark every year.
The tower's new facelift was unveiled on Monday, and includes the new level one glass floor balanced 57 metres above the ground, reports the Metro.
From a height of 57 metres, visitors look down through solid glass, while the sensation of 'walking on air' is further heightened because the glass safety barriers around the edge have been inclined outwards.
Paris' mayor Anne Hidalgo attended the new attraction's inauguration on Monday 6 October.
Tourists can prepare their nerves here before heading to the highest viewing platform near the top of the tower, 276 metres above ground.
The €30 million revamp of the first floor began in May 2012, and also includes shops, restaurants, and a museum explaining the 125-year-old construction.
The Eiffel Tower was named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower in 1889 as the entrance arch to the 1889 World's Fair.
The tower is the tallest structure in Paris and the most-visited paid monument in the world.
The tower is 324 metres (1,063ft) tall, and assumed the title of the tallest man-made structure in the world for 41 years, until the Chrysler Building in New York City was built in 1930.
Because of the addition of the aerial atop the Eiffel Tower in 1957, it is now taller than the Chrysler Building by 5.2 metres (17 ft).
Not including broadcast aerials, it is the second-tallest structure in France, after the Millau Viaduct.
