Sky-diving off Eiffel Tower...

Jump to last reply

I am going to Paris in October to sky-dive off of the Eiffel tower. Yes, I realize it's illegal, however, so far I have done this on famous monuments in other countries and have, so far, managed to elude capture.

I don't bring this up to brag, but merely in the hopes that someone out there is familiar with French law. Due to the fact that others have done this before me, I understand that the French have really started coming down hard on the perpetrators. Chances are I won't get caught (it is simply too easy to get far away from the tower in a short period of time with the right equipment and know-how)however, if I do, I would like to know what penalties/fines I could potentially face. Thanks.

P.S. For obvious reasons I am unable to use my real e-mail address.
