Constructed in 1889, the Eiffel Tower was supposed to be dismantled 20 years later, but stayed in place because it proved to be useful for scientific experiments. Here are a few figures: 10,100 tons, 2,500,000 rivets, 1,655 steps. Today, the tower is a symbol of Paris and France across the world and sparkles for five minutes on the hour every evening. A few minutes away from our hotel, the Eiffel tower is the most visited monument in Paris. Queues to access the lifts can be extremely long. To avoid a long wait, we recommend that you book your date and time of visit in advance.
The elevated « Troca »has a privileged viewpoint of the Eiffel Tower on the opposite bank of the Seine. Between the curved wings of the vast Palais de Chaillot – emblem of the 1930s – are gently sloping terraces and gardens, bordered by century-old Caucasian wing nut and hazel trees, and dotted with gilded bronze statues. Skaters and rollerbladers weave alongside the 20 fountains in the large basin beneath the gaze of Apollo and Hercules, sculpted on the pediment of the pavilions.
CHAMP DE MARS
The vast landscaoed park laid out below the famous tower has nothing warlike about it, and even boasts as Wall of Peace. Its name, borrowed from the Roman god of war, relates to the early history of the “champ” as an exercise area for the young cadets of the military school. Later, as the center point of the Expositions Universele, it was chosen as the site of the biggest attraction of 1889, the Eiffel Tower.
