About Eiffel Tower

The place where many people vow to be one, the Eiffel Tower is rightly called the "Symbol of Love". Millions of tourists from all over the world visit Paris to see the beautiful Tower and woo the 'love of their life'.  Many people actually propose at this place! The magical allure has everyone spellbound and anyone who goes down on his knee is rarely disappointed. Even pre-wedding photoshoots are carried out with the iconic tower in the background. It has been voted one of the seven wonders of the world in a new survey. The reason for it becoming famous is strange. It became famous because it was never supposed to stay there. Eiffel designed it for the temporary Exposition Universelle, and many other buildings and constructions sprung up around the Eiffel Tower during the exhibition. The Eiffel Tower is now a very popular place to visit when you are in Paris and definitely people can do a lot more than just exploring it!

Bienvenue in Paris is where you can visit the Eiffel Tower. Regarded as the iconic emblem of France in general and Paris in particular. France and the Eiffel Tower are synonymous. Named after Gustave Eiffel, the tower measures 1,063 feet tall, and is the tallest structure in Paris and is the second-tallest in France. Take the stairs, or take the elevator to the first and second levels. Stand on the glass at the first floor to see the city directly below your feet. Test your skills in a fun game of mystery as you try to decipher riddles the entire family can enjoy. Watch the CinEiffel film on three immersive screens to transport you in time. Check out the exhibitions, enjoy a bit of French cuisine at the restaurant and buffet, and buy souvenirs for your friends back home. Then continue on to the second level for more culinary delights and clear views of the city and all of its treasures. Lastly, stop just before you reach the top: where countless love stories have commenced and many more are added each day. Be inspired by the enticing aura of romance as you get swept off your feet, by day or by night.
