No one could imagine Paris today without it. But Gustave Eiffel only constructed this elegant, 320m-tall signature spire as a temporary exhibit for the 1889 World's Fair. Luckily, the art nouveau tower’s popularity assured its survival. Prebook tickets online to avoid long ticket queues.

Lifts ascend to the tower’s three floors; change lifts on the 2nd floor for the final ascent to the top. Energetic visitors can walk as far as the 2nd floor using the south pillar’s 704-step stairs.

Refreshment options in the tower include two snack bars, the 1st-floor 58 Tour Eiffel , the sublime 2nd-floor Le Jules Verne , and, at the top, a champagne bar.
