For the first time ever, tourists will be able to stay in the Eiffel Tower

Since its opening in 1889, the Eiffel Tower has attracted over 250 million visitors and these days welcomes an impressive 7 million visitors a year, but none of them have been able to spend the night snoozing under its iron latticework - until now.

For the duration of the UEFA Euro 2016 football tournament, rental company HomeAway will be turning a section of the iconic structure into a holiday let.

Four lucky competition winners, each with up to five guests, will be able to spend the night on the tower’s first level, 172 feet above the ground, which will be remodelled into living quarters.

The elevated apartment is currently being constructed, with French interior designer Benoit Leleu in charge of the particulars. 

The competition is now open, and prospective tower tourists can enter by suggesting what they would do if they had la Tour Eiffel to themselves for a night . 

Brian Sharples HomeAway CEO called the move "unprecedented" and said it was "guaranteed to provide the most epic vacation memories of a lifetime."
