The most popular attraction in Paris is the Eiffel Tower, or La Tour Eiffel, and is one of the world’s most recognised landmarks. The tower is named after Gustave Eiffel, an engineer whose company designed and built the tower in 1887.
Standing at 330m to the tip, almost 7 million visitors per year come to see this iconic structure, some of which climb the 1,665 steps to the top. Others simply take the elevator!
Inside the tower, there are many fun and exciting things that you can do. On the first floor, you can see an exhibit of the tower’s history through photographs, films and other interactive displays. On the second floor, you can find the best spots for taking photos of scenic Paris views.
In the evening, the tower sparkles and glows in a beautiful golden light, making it even more breathtaking.
