Eiffel Tower and Champ de Mars Paris

Eiffel Tower and Champ de Mars Paris

The Eiffel Tower is located on the Left Bank of the river Seine in Paris. Built in 1889 as the entrance arch to the 1889 World's Fair, it has become the cultural icon of Paris. Construction began in 1887 and was concluded in1889. It was only meant to be kept for 20 years. After the 20 years, the tower became the property of Paris. By this time, the city had learned that the tower could be used to help with communications. The military used the tower to communicate during battle.
The tower is today the most-visited paid monument in the world. The third level observatory's upper platform is at 280 m the highest accessible to public. The Eiffel tower stands 320 metres tall. The Eiffel Tower was the tallest man-made structure in the world, until the construction of the Chrysler Building in New York. The tower has three levels for visitors. The third and highest level is accessible only by lift - stairs exist but they are not usually open for public use. Both the first and second levels feature restaurants.
