The Eiffel tower !

3 12 2010

I’m going to speak about the Eiffel tower :

It’s an iron lattice tower located on the Champ de Mars in Paris, it was built in 1887–1889.

It became a global icon of France and one of the most reconizable structures in the world.

It’s the most visited paid monument too : millions of people go up it every year.

It was named by the engineer Gustave Eiffel, it was built as the entrance arch to the 1889 world’s fair.

The tower has three levels for visitors. Tickets can be taken to go up : by stairs or lift, to the first and second levels. The walk to the first level is over 300 steps. The third and highest level is accessible only by elevator. The first and the second levels feature restaurants.
