Eiffel Tower The Eiffel Tower

Eiffel tower doesn't need an introduction. This immensely popular tower was built by the engineer Gustave Eiffel. Adorning the city's skyline for over 100 years now, Eiffel Tower has become synonymous with Paris. Eiffel Tower is situated in the 7th district(arrondissement). It is the city's most famous address. The Eiffel Tower is as high as 317 meters and has found a proud place in the city's skyline for over 100 years. This structure has three floors and was designed by the talented engineer Gustav Eiffel as a celebration of the French Revolution. The project which started at 1887, took two years to build. It weighs around 10000 tons, is composed of 18000 pieces, and has 1665 steps. The structure is re-painted every 7 years using around 50 tonnes of paint.

The most interesting part of this structure was that when it was built, it was expected to last only for a few months. But in spite of the criticism and cynicism, this structure stands tall for more than a century now.

The tower has radio and television transmitters. It also has a reception/conference room, a few restaurants and souvenir shops.
