There are so many romantic sites in Paris to visit, including Île de la Cité, Jardin du Palais Royal, Pont des Arts and Canal St Martin. But there is nothing more romantic than the view of the famous Eiffel Tower with its miraculous display of lights at night.

The Eiffel Tower got its name from its creator, Gustave Eiffel. It is considered to be the tallest building in Paris and one of the most famous structures in the world. There are 347 steps to the first level, 674 steps to the second level and 1,710 steps to the third level but visitors are only allowed to walk up to the second level, the elevator lift has to be taken to get to the top of the tower.

The Eiffel Tower was actually built as a temporarily structure for the Exposition Universelle in 1889 and served as the entrance arch to the Fair. The Eiffel Tower has been standing tall and proud for over 100 years and continues to stand today, being visited my millions of people around the world that are in love with the beautiful city of Paris.
