Lovers in Front of the Eiffel Tower – Paris, France

Constructed from 1887 to 1889 as the entrance to the 1889 World’s Fair, The Eiffel Tower is a wrought-iron lattice tower on the Champ de Mars in Paris, France. It is named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower.

It was initially criticised by some of France’s leading artists and intellectuals for its design, but it has become a global cultural icon of France and one of the most recognisable structures in the world. The 324 metres Eiffel Tower is the tallest structure in Paris and the most-visited paid monument in the world.
