-:Eiffel Tower:-
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Eiffel Tower, the most widely recognized national landmark in the world.
The Eiffel Tower is a 320-metre tower built of structural iron, originally constructed by engineer Gustave Eiffel (after whom the tower is named) for an international exposition in Paris in 1889. The tower was the only structure in the exposition intended for permanent display, and it survives to this day intact. It narrowly escaped demolition and conversion to scrap on several occasions in its youth, but today nobody would think of tearing down the Eiffel Tower.
There are elevators in the tower that can take you to the top. Double-decked elevators to the first and second levels are specially designed to ascend along the steep incline of the tower’s legs. More conventional double-decked glass elevators take you from the second level up to the summit. Since the tower is build of open ironwork, the ascent can be a very harrowing experience for anyone with a fear of heights, so beware!
The net you see surrounding the intermediate level between the second and third platforms is intended to protect painters working on that part of the tower (the public is not admitted to that small intermediate platform).
