The Eiffel Tower is a wrought-iron lattice tower on the Champ de Mars in Paris, France. It is named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower.
Any mention of France, and Paris in particular, will surely conjure up an image of the most iconic of icons.
“A symbol of romance and geometrical elegance.”
We are of course talking about the Eiffel Tower in Paris, which celebrates its 130th anniversary on March 31st, 2019. With nearly 7 million visitors each year and 250 million in total since its inauguration in 1889, the Eiffel Tower is one of the world’s most popular attractions.
The Eiffel Tower was envisioned as the centerpiece for the Exposition Universelle, or World’s Fair, held in Paris in 1889 to mark the centenary of the French Revolution.
