The French symbol of Love


Eiffel Tower...As beautiful as it gets 

The first thing that we can Imagine about Paris is The Eiffel tower. The metal structure that has the power to inspire romance. When The Eiffel tower was erected in 1889, it attracted criticism from many renowned artists and intellects of France regarding the design. Believe it or not but Eiffel tower was first intended to be built in Barcelona but later constructed in Paris as temporary feature and was almost torn down in 1909. La dame de fer  was the nickname given to the beautiful tower which means The Iron Lady.

The tower was named after the engineer Alexandra Gustave Eiffel whose company constructed the Eiffel tower, It was considered to be the tallest man-made structure for almost 40 long years. It was famously said that Hitler conquered France but couldn't conquer The Eiffel tower, well a saying which truly exhibits the mighty character of the structure.

If you are planning to visit Paris and will obviously visit The Eiffel tower then you better book your tickets online to avoid the long lines, The Eiffel tower is open for visitors for all the 365 days. As a visitor you will have the access to 3 levels, the first two have couple of great restaurants overlook the city and the third level is an observatory to view the city encircling the tower.

I will be posting such small insight about the places that you should visit before you get a call from the devil. Share it if you like it. Thanks and have a great day.
