Eiffel Tower

Paris was conquered by Julius Caesar in 52 BC, and existed as a regional center under the Romans.

Everybody knows there is a beautiful tower in Paris. The beautiful tower is Eiffel Tower. Designed by Gustav Eiffel, a bridge builder, the tower is around 300 metres tall and has viewing platforms at several levels. The tower weighs over 7,000 tons, has 12,000 metal sections and 2,500,000 rivets.

Amazing views of Paris from the top level. Anyone begging or trying to sell you anything at the bottom of the tower is probably an illegal immigrant, just be prepared for a little hassling from these people, but they run away when the cops come. Also there is long lines to get up the tower in summer.

If you visit France next time, don't forget to visit Paris, and the beautiful Eiffel Tower, too.
