Description

The Eiffel Tower was built for the 1889 Exposition Universelle to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution. It was only supposed to have a 20 year lifespan, but it quickly became such a favourite Paris sight that it has been maintained and renovated as a cherished landmark far beyond that initial proposal. This is a hand-held panorama taken at twilight in Spring 2009. At that time, every hour, the tower announced the new hour with a myriad of strobe lights, sparkling like vertical fireworks. In the distance, one can make out the Montparnasse Tower, which, a Paris-Walks guide told us, is known by locals as "the box the Eiffel Tower came in". For more information, go to: www.eiffel-tower.com Will open in a new tab or window/ and choose your language preference from the pull-down menu at the top line. This panorama is a good companion to some of the other panoramas taken from the same viewpoint, but during the daytime.
