The Tour Eiffel is synonymous with Paris, an a must see while visiting. It was meant to be only temporary for the 1889 Universal Exhibition. It was built by Gustave-Alexandre Eiffel. It weighs 7000 tonnes.
The light rainfall did not stop us from braving the hundreds of stairs to the first level. There was quite a line for those wishing to take the elevator up, but my mom and I certainly did not mind the exercise.
The view from above is marvelous. At the top you can see for 65 kms. There are great photo opportunities. We easily spotted the Hotel des Invalides and Napoleon’s Tomb. The golden dome really stands out.
