Of course, the Eiffel Tower is a Parisian landmark, towering over the city since its construction as a temporary exhibit for the 1889 Paris Exhibition. You can see it from almost everywhere, but – because of it’s great height (1,063 feet) – it takes a lot longer to actually get to it than it seems it should. That’s ok though, as it is lovely just walking through this part of Paris.
The tower tantalizes, seemingly so near, but never quite within reach.
And then it towers above us.
