"The Eiffel Tower " La Tour Eiffel Tip by keeweechic

La Tour Eiffel, Paris: 603 reviews and 1,084 photos


The Tour Eiffel was originally built as a short-term structure to celebrate the centenary of the Revolution. When it was complete, and at a height of 986 ft, it was the tallest building in the world. The tower was never torn down and has gone on to become an lasting icon of the city of Paris. Today it also serves a purpose as the television transmitter for the greater Paris region.

Whether you see it by day or by night, the view from the tower is spectacular, but of course more magical at night.
