Perhaps the most recognizable monument in the world, the Eiffel Tower was also the world’s tallest man-made structure for four decades until the completion of the Chrysler Building in New York in 1930 and was also the tallest in France for almost a century. Completed on March 31, 1889, right on time for that year’s World’s Fair, the project revised by Gustave Eiffel won a competition for the entrance of the Fair. It was supposed to be dismantled after the event, but the City of Paris decided not to since it proved to be useful as a communications tower.

Nowadays it welcomes seven million visitors per year. To understand this wonder of engineering, it’s important to know the numbers: it is 324 meters tall, made of 18.000 pieces of metal and building it required 2.5 million thermally assembled rivets and 7.300 tons of iron. Though it’s possible to climb the 1.665 steps to the top, the fastest way is to take the lift.

Besides enjoying the amazing view, the visitors can chill out at any of the restaurants and bars inside the tower: 58 Tour Eiffel, Le Jules Verne, Champagne Bar, Gustave Eiffel Room or Buffet Tour Eiffel.
