A luxury apartment has been built on the first level of the Eiffel Tower for fans looking for a novel way to enjoy Euro 2016. The HomeAway Eiffel Tower Apartment was created in less than 48 hours, said a post on the Facebook page of HomeAway. According to the post, the apartment interior was transformed by acclaimed French designer Benoit Leleu, who created a first-of-its-kind space, complete with a comfortable living area, an urban greenhouse, and two bedrooms all featuring furnishings by Italian design house, Lago. According to the Business Insider UK, the new apartment was opened on June 10 by the holiday home-rental site HomeAway and the pop-up apartment that will remain open until the end of the football tournament in July.
