Short Description: 

Zippy visits the Eiffel Tower but his heart seems to be in San Francisco (and visa versa). The iconic Eiffel Tower is located on the Champs de Mars near the River Seine in the 7th arrondissement of Paris.

Long Description:

From the bateaux-mouches that cruise the Seine you get this unusual perspective, looking up at the Eiffel Tower. Even if you think you've taken enough pictures of this Paris landmark you probably can't resist taking some more from this angle, especially at twilight.

The iron lattice Eiffel Tower, located on the Champ de Mars, was built in 1889 as the entrance arch to the 1889 World's Fair. It was designed and built by engineer Gustave Eiffel, hence its name. The tower is 1,063 ft. tall. When built it was the tallest man-made structure in the world. It is still the tallest building in France.

The Eiffel Tower is one of the the most visited monument in the world; hosting millions of people it every year. The tower has three observation levels that vary in price according to elevation. Restaurants on located on the first two levels.
