The Eiffel Tower was built by Gustave Eiffel for the Universal Exposition in Paris in 1889, and originally named "300-meter tower." This monument has become the symbol of Paris, and is a major tourist site.
The Eiffel Tower remained the highest monument in the world for 41 years. Its height has been increased several times by the installation of many antennas, peaking at 324 m. Used in the past for many scientific experiments; it now serves as a transmitter of radio and television programs.
The Eiffel Tower offers breathtaking views of Paris from its three public levels. When the sky is clear you can even see the coast.
