Eiffel Tower (Paris)

 (edit info)

An iron tower built in 1889 by French architect Gustave Eiffel as the main attraction of the universal exposition, which marked the centennial of the French Revolution. It was supposed to be torn down after a few years but it was saved by it's popularity and after it was useful as a communications tower. Now it is an iconic symbol of France. It is 324 metres high, featuring three floors. To ascend the tower, you must take the lift (Up to the first and second floors. to get to the summit, you must take a separate lift on the second floor.) or the stairs (up to the first and second floors only.)
Practical informations :
The First Floor of the Eiffel Tower is 95 metres above sea level (hence the name of the resturant on the floor, Altitude 95.) The Top Floor of the Tower has:
Interior Orientation Panels
Exterior Viewing platform
Wax Replica of Gustave Eiffel and Thomas Edison in a Reconstruction of Eiffel's Flat
Multiple Antennae (not open to public)

Second floor:

Today, it's really funny to remember how many people, including known artists and architects, true lovers of Paris, protested against the construction and insisted that "the ugly iron thing" would be a shame for Paris. He, he: now the tower is the city's Emblem No.1, the most Parisian thing known, more famous then even the Louvre and the Notre Damme...

I've been here the other week. It was GREAT. Although the middle kinda creates some kind of wind vortex thing, so the winds in the middle of the Eiffel are very strong. Nevertheless the trip to the top was worth my 11.60 euros. :D
