Eiffel Tower staircase up for auction

A section of iron steps, which once connected the Eiffel tower's second and third levels, will be auctioned.

    15-step section of Paris' emblematic monument Eiffel Tower's original spiral staircase will go under the hammer.

    The staircase was dismantled and divided into segments when the Tower underwent renovations in 1889.
