Las Vegas has some pretty realistic duplicates of iconic landmarks. There's the New York Skyline, Statue of Liberty and a replica Eiffel Tower. Well the latter could soon be the only one.
There are reports that the OG Eiffel Tower Is falling apart. So if you've ever considered visiting Paris' famed Eiffel Tower, you might want to start making plans now. There's a chance it will no longer be standing in a few years. This is according to a report that leaked by the French magazine Marianne reveals the 153-year-old landmark is "riddled with rust" and in "urgent" need of repair.
An unidentified Eiffel Tower manager tells the magazine, "If Gustave Eiffel visited the place, he would have a heart attack." Although the tower is being repainted for the 2024 Olympics, experts tell Marianne the paint job will give the monument only a "cosmetic facelift" while making the corrosion even worse. They say the Eiffel Tower needs to be stripped down to its metal and repaired before it's repainted -- or it will fall into further disrepair.
The one outside of the Paris in Las Vegas could soon be the last Eiffel standing.
