About this spot
The Eiffel Tower (French: la tour Eiffel) is a monument in Paris and one of the most famous and most visited sights in France. It is located on the left bank of the Seine in the 7th arrondissement of Paris.

The Eiffel Tower is the symbol of Paris and is seen by many as one of the non-classical wonders of the world.

The tower was designed by engineers Maurice Koechlin and Émile Nouguier, two employees of Gustave Eiffel. The tower receives more than six million visitors annually, making it the most visited monument in the world.

The Eiffel Tower is 317 meters high to the top of the flagpole, without counting the television antennas. With television antennas, the tower is 324 meters high. Depending on the ambient temperature, the tower can change 15 cm in height by expanding or shrinking the metal. The tower has four legs; platforms are located at different levels. The tower weighs 7,300 tons (excluding the foundation). After construction, the Eiffel Tower was the world's tallest tower and, apart from television towers, remained the tallest tower in Europe for 126 years.
