Photographie de Paris, La Tour Eiffel
La Tour Eiffel (The Eiffel Tower) is one of the truly great iconic landmarks in the world; it is one of the many things that symbolises Paris. Built as apart of the 1889 World Fair, and was only intended to be part of the Parisien skyline for 20 years; 118 years later, the 'Iron Lady' remains one of the most beautiful and recognised structures in the world.
It is so recognisable through that it is a truly surreal experience the first time one experiences it in real life. It is that amazing and moving to see it in person. It is no surprise that over 6 million people a year visit the Eiffel Tower each year (650+ million people have visited since it opened).
