It's the most famous landmark in the world and the place of romance, history and Parisian culture - the Eiffel Tower
The Eiffel Tower never fails to impress. The construction of the Eiffel Tower from 1887-1889 took an impressive two years, two months and five days to complete. The tremendous structure was only intended to last twenty years as an observation station to measure the speed of wind but the structure was saved because of its antenna use both for military and other purposes. It was constructed as the entrance to the 1889 World’s Fair and has now become one of the most recognised French global cultural icons in the world. At 324 metres in height and considered one of the tallest structure in Paris, it has become one of the most visited paid monuments in the world. The tower consists of three levels, with delicious restaurants on the first and second level. For those looking to climb to the top to savour the bird’s eye view of the city, be prepared for the 300-step staircase from ground level to the first level and first level to the second level.
During a trip to Paris, a visit to the Eiffel tower is a must. From such heights, you can capture outstanding photos and views of the romantic city of Paris from many different angles. Make sure you catch the Eiffel Tower’s infamous light show at night – a splendid romantic ending to a brilliant day in Paris.
