What is the very first thing that you think about whenever you are traveling to Paris? For me – it is all about the Eiffel Tower and for most people, it is the same. The Eiffel Tower is actually one of those pieces of history that many people have seen but have not been educated about. That is what we are here for! I have a little background info on the Eiffel Tower and I am totally willing to share!
Firstly, the Eiffel Tower was actually designed by A.G Eiffel and it is actually situated right near the bank of river Sienna. This particular history tower is something that has been in Paris for quite a while and it actually has a lot of secrets in the design of it.
The engineer that made this masterpiece wanted it to be really – really high, so instead of metal, he actually used steel for this structure so it would be sound.
