An Ode to the Tower of Paris

The Eiffel Tower in Paris, FranceStory and photos by Linda Donahue

I have an admission: I have never been inside the Eiffel Tower. I could blame the long lines or the weather, but the truth is that I find the Eiffel Tower a far more compelling object of admiration from afar. There is no more iconic representation of Paris that Gustave Eiffel’s wrought iron tower, especially when seen from across the Seine, or from Montmartre’s scenic butte. No matter how much time I spend in Paris, I still find myself smiling when I emerge from a winding Paris rue and suddenly spot the Eiffel Tower rising up against the landscape. Sometimes I wonder if Gustave planned it that way.

Up close, the Eiffel Tower is a marvel of engineering, but from a distance, it is the French capital’s immovable ambassador to the world.

  1. I totally agree… I love the Eiffel Tower but I have to be able to stand back and look at it, not be in it.
    I also have this thing about great heights etc ..
    But my husband has been way up there and he told me the view was nice, that was enough for me.
    As long as I can see the Eiffel Tower, I am content :)
