Eiffel Tower- Paris, France - VirtualTourist.com
Weighing 7,000 tons but exerting about the same pressure on the ground as an average-size person sitting in a chair, the wrought-iron tower wasn't meant to be permanent. Gustave-Alexandre Eiffel, the French engineer, famous mainly on his iron bridges, built it for the 1889 Universal Exhibition. What...

The first time we went was in the middle of the day to go up in it. Being cheap backpackers of relatively good health, we decided to climb it, at least to the 2nd level. The lines to ride the elevator are also atrocious (3 hours), with no line to climb it. Climbing it is wonderful. I appreciated it ...

Review: Eiffel Tower
It really isn't the most amazing thing in Paris, though, despite its fame. There are many attractions that are far older with a much richer history. There are more romantic (and less crowded) spots.

Designed by Gustave Eiffel, it was originally built as a temporary attraction for the Paris Exhibition of 1889.
