The Eiffel Tower

Highly recommended
An intrinsic part of the Parisian cityscape, the Eiffel Tower is doubtless the best-known monument in the world, and perhaps also the most visited. This gigantic iron tower, built by Gustave Eiffel for the 1889 World's Fair, did not garner only praise at the time. But ever since its inauguration, this 300m-tall construction has been a hit with the people, and the panoramic view that it commands is simply fabulous.
