eiffel-tower-lit-at-night

The landmark which defines Paris and France together as its most famous icon , but which was scorned by the French themselves as a monstrosity par excellence. Today it is regarded as a modern wonder of the world, affording breathtaking views of Paris but be warned, it is not for those who suffer from vertigo.

Visitor tip: ascend the Eiffel Tower towards the end of the day, so you get to see Paris by day and by night.
