Caroline's Travel Tips on Paris

  • The New Eiffel Tower Experience

    The Eiffel Tower site has an excellent description of its history with photos and drawings. La Tour Eiffel was built for the 1889 World Fair in Paris. At the time, it was considered a "monstrosity" by many Parisians and was scheduled to be taken down twenty years after the Fair. Thankfully, that opinion changed, and the Eiffel Tower has endured as a symbol of Paris and the romance of travel worldwide.
