It is [the Eiffel Tower]
CENTRALLY situated in an area called Champs-de-Mars, and
you get an amazing view of the SURROUNDING city from the
top.
It's from the exercise.
"It is centrally situated" seemed strange to me (because I haven't heard it before), and I googled and found "centrally located". I must confess I'm always a bit suspicious of unknown Internet sources. Is it correct to say "centrally situated"?

Yes. There's an implied "It is" or "We are" before "centrally situated" in the above example, but "centrally situated" and "centrally located" are perfectly acceptable adjectival phrases. "centrally located" is more common in my experience.

EDIT: I just noticed it's actually preceded by "It is" in the above example.
