The tower, designed by Gustave Eiffel, has been an integral part of the Parisian landscape for over 100 years. It can be seen in the paintings of Seurat, Chagall, Delaunay; it served as a background in hundreds of films; it inspired many extreme sportsmen to do crazy stunts. The tower is visited by 7 million people annually, so 1001guide offers to buy tickets online without queues and rush.
Until 1930, it was the tallest structure in the world. 300 steelworkers built it for more than 2 years. They used 18 thousand metal parts, 2.5 million rivets, and 40 tons of paint. The result is a sturdy structure that is not subject to the wind despite its 324 m height.
