Petit Futé's opinion on THE EIFFEL TOWER
The tower built by Gustave Eiffel for the 1889 Universal Exhibition - which marks the centenary of the Revolution - and whose destruction was planned 20 years later, is finally preserved for scientific reasons. The feet of the building coincide with the four cardinal points, they weigh more than 10,000 tons, and it was the highest monument in the world until 1931. The Tower has reached a height of more than 320 m since 1957, when the French television broadcasting antenna was set up. From the second floor, 115 m above ground level, it is estimated that on clear days up to 55 km to the south, 60 to the north, 65 to the east and 70 to the west can be seen. Le Jules-Verne, taken over from Alain Ducasse's group, is a gastronomic restaurant open seven days a week and very popular. The third floor is an enclosed space punctuated by orientation tables, but equipped with an upper floor, totally open, with the most beautiful view of Paris. If you are brave enough to climb the 750 steps that lead from the bottom to the second floor, it is cheaper, more sporty and above all it is much faster to buy tickets. Among the many attractions of the tower, the shops, its champagne bar at the top and its many restaurants, including its gourmet restaurant, Le Jules Verne. Sublime!
