Eiffel Tower: Architecture snobs once scoffed at it, but the Eiffel Tower more than lives up to its reputation for beauty. If you grew up in grade school seeing the Eiffel Tower and the Pyramids as symobols of an exotic, wonderful world, actually seeing the tower for the first time will inspire awe. If you visit Paris, try to scope out the tower from every vantage point.
The tower was originally built in 1889 for the Paris World's Fair as a temporary structure but was allowed to stay and has become a defining symbol for the city. It is just under 1,000 feet tall and weighs over 10,000 tons.
