Whenever there's talk of France or of Paris, the monument that immediately comes to mind regardless of nationality is the Eiffel Tower. The Iron Lady rises 324 m high in the sky, a feature of the French capital since the end of the 19th century. Built for the 1889 World's Fair, it was to be dismantled after 20 years. This gives Gustave Eiffel the idea of carrying out scientific experiments that will make the tower indispensable. Parisians do not respond with immediate enthusiasm. Many people think this metal structure does the capital a disservice.
Little by little, however, the Eiffel Tower will become the monument of Paris. On three levels, an exceptional panorama opens up to the astonished eyes of visitors. All of Paris presents itself to these 7 million tourists who climb the stairs or use the lifts each year. Today it would be unthinkable to visit the capital without going to the Eiffel Tower. Especially considering that refreshments are available on site. You can choose from various options ranging from the buffet to the gourmet restaurant or the brasserie. With a breathtaking view of the major Parisian monuments.
Many events have been organised at the Eiffel Tower to further increase, if need be, its attraction to the public. Whether you view her from the Seine or from the Champ de Mars, this great lady sparkles with all her lights to the delight of young and old. A true technological challenge for the era in which it was constructed, and built, let's not forget, in two years and two months, the Eiffel Tower remains a beautiful edifice that has proved itself indispensable. With the numerous antennas at its peak, it has become an inseparable partner of modern means of communication.
Above all, the Eiffel Tower is the image of France abroad. It's the emblem of expertise à la française. It is still by far the most visited paying monument in the world.
