Eiffel Tower, Paris: 601 reviews and 1,080 photos

by Martinewezel

This tower was built for the World exposition in 1889. Until the Empire State Building in NY was finished in 1931, the Eiffel Tower was the highest building in the world. Now it's the symbol of Paris.

Did you know that the tower has to be repaint every 7 years? And that 60 tonnes of paint is needed to keep the Eiffel Tower in good repair?

The view from above is unique, but you need to have patientce to go up. The lines are very long and the waiting times too. 45 minutes is normal during weekends.

Don't miss the old black and white pictures on the plaza, which show how the Eiffel tower was built!

Address: Trocadero
Directions: You can't miss it!!!
