I strongly believe that the Eiffel Tower is the most striking sight in the whole world! It is located on the Champ de Mars in Paris and it has become both a global icon of France and one of the most recognizable structures in the world.iconFrance
It was designed by the French engineer and bridge builder Alexander Gustave Eiffel (1832-1923) for the Paris Exposition of 1889. It has remained since then a remarkable monument.
The tower stands at 324 metres and it is a steel structure. It weighs approximately 10,000 tones ! It was the tallest structure in the world from its completion until 1930, but now it is the second-tallest structure in France.steel
The Eiffel Tower is undoubtedly an attraction pole for all the people around the world, since every year millions of tourists visit this breathtaking monument. The tower has three levels for visitors. In fact, the walk to the first level is over 300 steps, as well as the second! The other levels are only accessible by lift.
Some day, I would definitely want to go to Paris, to visit the Eiffel Tower and have an experience of a lifetime! Especially, I would want to visit the Eiffel Tower at night, because at night the tower turns into an amazingly stunning adornment for Paris! This picture proves it all.
The tower has become the most prominent symbol of both Paris and France. The tower is a featured part of the backdrop in literally scores of romantic movies that take place in Paris. Its iconic status is so established that it even serves as a symbol for the entire nation of France!
So l believe that this fantastic building which is visited by thousands of people every year is worth getting the title of one of the seven wonders.
