EIFFEL TOWER

The Eiffel Tower is an iron lattice tower located on the Champ de Mars in Paris. It was named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower. Erected in 1889 as the entrance arch to the 1889 World's Fair, it was initially criticised by some of France's leading artists and intellectuals for its design, but has become both a global cultural icon of France and one of the most recognizable structures in the world.[1] The tower is the tallest structure in Paris and the most-visited paid monument in the world.
The tower is 324 meters (1,063 ft) tall, about the same height as an 81-storey building. During its construction, the Eiffel Tower surpassed the Washington Monument to assume the title of the tallest man-made structure in the world, a title it held for 41 years, until the Chrysler Building in New York City was built in 1930. Because of the addition of the aerial atop the Eiffel Tower in 1957, it is now taller than the Chrysler Building by 5.2 meters (17 ft). Not including broadcast aerials, it is the second-tallest structure in France, after the Millau Viaduct.
The tower has three levels for visitors, with restaurants on the first and second. The third level observatory's upper platform is 276 m (906 ft) above the ground, the highest accessible to the public in the European Union. Tickets can be purchased to ascend by stairs or lift (elevator) to the first and second levels. The climb from ground level to the first level is over 300 steps, as is the walk from the first to the second level. Although there are stairs to the third and highest level, these are usually closed to the public and it is generally only accessible by lift.
Every night, the Eiffel Tower puts on a series of miniature light shows that add extra sparkle to the golden lighting. These sparkling lights make the tower twinkle for five minutes, every hour on the hour between sundown and 1 a.m. It takes 20,000 light bulbs installed one-by-one over the course of five months to produce this effect. Because they are all installed individually, they are able to flicker on and off at random to simulate sparkling.
Like a lighthouse, the Eiffel Tower is equipped with a powerful beacon on top. The beacon consists of two light beams pointed in opposite directions, which is the result of four projectors perfectly synchronized and automated. Each projector rotates 90 degrees before switching off and returning to its original position, at which point the next projector sends out the beam and rotates. The bulbs used in these projectors last more than 1,000 hours each and can be seen from a distance of nearly 50 miles.
