1. The Eiffel Tower
Did you know, Eiffel Tower was constructed by the engineer Gustave Eiffel as a temporary exhibit for the World Fair in 1889 and the design was criticized by many prominent artists and a large section of the intellectual community. But to everyone’s surprise, this elegant and unique 320m-tall signature spire not just survived but went on to become not a global icon of France. Today, Eiffel Tower is the most visited paid monument in the world. It is also one of the world’s most recognizable monument. In 2015, 6.91 million people ascended this stunning landmark of Paris. Do you really need any other reason than the Eiffel Tower to visit Paris?
