Why the Eiffel Tower is special

The Eiffel Tower was built in 1889 for an international exhibition in Paris, France and named for its builder, Gustave Eiffel

It soars 321 meters (1051 feet) high including its broadcast antenna. The Eiffel Tower instantly became the world's tallest man-made structure. It broke the record held for over 4400 years by the Khufu Pyramid in Egypt only to lose it 41 years later to the Woolworth Building in Manhattan


Local controversy 

The Eiffel Tower commands the Parisian skyline to the delight of many locals but to the dismay of others who consider it unaesthetic, or worse 

A popular wonder
Six million people visit the Eiffel Tower each year to relish the 360 degree view of Paris. Nearly everyone takes an elevator up. A few hardy soles walk up the 1665 steps to the top
What leading travel books say about the Eiffel Tower
