Tour Eiffel

Monument Paris, France

La Tour Eiffel: the symbol of Paris Tour Eiffel

The "Eiffel Tower" is known all over the world as the symbol of Paris; its name comes from the designer Gustave Eiffel, who built it in less than two years, from 1887 to 1889, for the "Exposition Universelle" taking place in Paris the very same year. Built with the purpose of commemorating the anniversary of the French Revolution, today it is still considered to be one of the most impressive architectural examples in the world.

Built with 18,000 pieces of iron and 5,000,000 bolts; the Eiffel Tower is in fact 320 m high, and its weights is around 10,000 tons. To reach the top of this remarkable monument, there are two possibilities: walking the 1665 steps or taking the two transparent elevators. You can't miss the Tower by night, illuminated by more than 900 lights; it will be an unforgettable experience, a unique sight in your life.
