Holiday Destination: Eiffel Tower The Great Wonder

The Eiffel Tower in Paris wants no demonstration because it is one the most well known monuments in the world where approximately 5 million people visit every year from all corner of the globe.

Your tour wouldn’t be complete in Paris if you are not visiting Eiffel Tower. Even if you do not want to visit this world famous structure you will see its top from all over Paris. The tower rises 300 meters tall (984 ft) when it was finished at the end of the 19th century it was twice as high as the Washington Monument, at the time the tallest structure in the world.

The Tower was designed by Gustave Eiffel that is why it’s called Eiffel Tower. It was completed in 1889 for the Paris world exhibition. The Tower was designed and built just two years by 132 workers and 50 engineers. It is 324 m high and its weight is 7300 tons.

I'd definitely recommend everyone must visiting this Wonder.
