      Special comments

      On few occasions the visit to the Eiffel Tower could be replaced by a visit at the Montparnasse Tower.

      When you picture Paris, you picture the Eiffel Tower. This structure is the symbol of the city, and over 250 million people have visited it since its 1889 opening. Over seven million tour it each year, the most in the world for paid admissions. Not bad for something that was supposed to be a temporary structure.

      In the 1880s, France planned an Exposition Universelle (World's Fair) for 1889 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution. Officials held a contest for a monument to be built at the entrance of the fair, and Alexandre-Gustave Eiffel's firm won.

      Eiffel was known for his company's work with America's Statue of Liberty. However, Eiffel himself did not come up with the design, although he did add some flourishes to it. His employee Maurice Koechlin did, but the Koechlin Tower does not have quite the same ring.  The tower took over two years to build and soared nearly 1000 feet high, making it the biggest man-made structure in the world at that time. 

      The structure was never supposed to stay up for over 100 years. It was originally planned to be demolished in 1909, but was kept up because of its use as a station for telegraph transmissions. During World War II, Adolf Hitler, who had posed next to the tower after the fall of Paris in 1940, tried to get the building destroyed. But his orders were never carried out. Fortunately, the Eiffel Tower is still here today with us. 

      A tower of babble 

      As hard as it may be to believe today, the Eiffel Tower wasn't always universally beloved. In fact, some of the biggest French artists at the time tried to prevent the structure from being erected. Guy de Maupassant, Adolphe Bouguereau, and Jules Massenet, among others, wrote a petition called Artists Against the Eiffel Tower, in which they decried the building as a "giddy, ridiculous tower" that would take over Paris "like a gigantic black smokestack." Fortunately, their complaints were ignored.
