An evening in Paris
I reached Paris by afternoon. Once I checked into the hostel my first visit would be Eiffel tower. So I caught the metro to reach eiffel tower. I could see it from the metro
The Eiffel Tower is an iron tower built on the Champ de Mars beside the Seine River in Paris. The tower has become a global icon of France and is one of the most recognizable structures in the world.
Named after its designer, engineer Gustave Eiffel, the Eiffel Tower is the tallest building in Paris and one of the most recognized structures in the world. More than 200,000,000 have visited the tower since its construction in 1889, including 6,719,200 in 2006, making it the most visited paid monument in the world. Including the 24 m (79 ft) antenna, the structure is 325 m (1,063 ft) high (since 2000), which is equivalent to about 81 levels in a conventional building.
Once I reached. I was amazed by the architecture. I could not believe it was made up of steel until I touch verified it.
They light up the tower in the night and its just an amazing
Bottom up view of Eiffel tower. There are hundreds of such picture that I have taken. But only ten of them are going online.
I climbed the tower by stairs. As a custom ( Its a custom amongst my friends to visit WC on the top. And we believe it brings luck.) went to the toilet instead of coffee house there. This is the view from top of the people at the bottom of tower.
This picture was taken from across the bridge. You can see river Seine as well. It was difficult to shoot in night mode with out tripod. I used bridge's compound wall for this.
View from the top of the Eiffel tower. You can see entire Paris from the top. This is special because you can see the shade of the tower on the city and river Seine.
