After checking out two important tourist destinations on my first day in Paris, it was the time to see the most iconic structure of France. Yes, I am talking about the Eiffel Tower France.
Anybody who visits France makes it a point to see this magnificent structure, which is one of the wonders of the world. From my hotel, the Eiffel Tower was not too far, and considering the fact
that the crowd gets bigger as the sun sets down, so I decided to visit the place in the evening.
Resting in my hotel room till 4 in the evening, I decided to move ahead. I left my hotel by 4:30 in the evening and hired a cab to the Eiffel Tower. The weather was absolutely charming and it felt my heart with happiness and joy. The excitement to be in front of the massive structure was definitely quite huge within me. The traffic was moderate and it took more or less 20 minutes for the cab to reach the destination.
I had learned quite a few details about this massive structure. It was the year 1887 when the construction of the Eiffel Tower began. It took more than two years to complete the same. Some quick facts- the height of the tower is 324 meters, or 1063 feet; the base of the tower is actually square in shape, each side of 125 meters.
Even though the chauffer parked the car as close as to the tower, I had to walk significant amount of distance in order to reach the base. Without any doubt, I was left absolutely mesmerized with the massiveness of the structure. The size was absolutely overwhelming for me.
From every angle I took pictures, which made my digital camera beg for mercy. The crowd was moderate, and the tower started glowing with lights as the sun went down. The surrounding atmosphere was absolutely electric, and the moments were absolutely unforgettable for me. I wish I had a home close to the Eiffel Tower. Overall, it was an evening I would never forget in my entire life.
