Eiffel Tower (from the top platform of the Tour Montparnasse), Paris, France


This is photo of the Eiffel Tower (taken at night from the top platform of the Tour Montparnasse), the 19th century iron lattice tower located on the Champ de Mars in Paris, that has become both a global icon of France and one of the most recognizable structures in the world. The Eiffel Tower, which is the tallest building in Paris, is the single most visited paid monument in the world; millions of people ascend it every year. Named after its designer, engineer Gustave Eiffel, the tower was built as the entrance arch for the 1889 World's Fair.
