Eifel Tower - From River bank, France
The one and only Eiffel Tower is a timeless symbol of Paris and considered one of the most iconic landmarks in the world. Situated on the Champ de Mars in the 7th arrondissement of the French capital, the iron lattice tower stands 324 metres tall and is a must-visit destination for travellers and photographers alike. Originally constructed for the 1889 Universal Exhibition, the Eiffel Tower has been considered a marvel of engineering for over a century. It was briefly the tallest man-made structure in the world before being surpassed in 1930. You can access the Eiffel Tower in Paris’ 16th arrondissement. Although the lines to ascend the Tower can be long during peak tourist months, there are a variety of platforms and activities available throughout the complex such as the interactive science museum, souvenir shops, champagne bar and the ultimate – of course – the observation deck. Make sure you check the official website ahead of your visit to secure tickets as pre-booking is recommended. Travellers also looking for an alternate view should check out the Pont d'Iéna, a pedestrian suspension bridge that offers an impressive skyline view of the tower.
