On the top of the Tour

  It is hard to believe now that once the Tour Eiffel was an unloved monument by the Parisian people, and they requested many times to demolish it after the end of the universal exhibition.
 I don't think at that time they thought that one day this tour will become  the symbol of France and will be the number one paid  monument visited  in the world .
 But i Guess Mr Gustave Eiffel had a dream and he hold on to it, some even say that he continued the construction of the Tour on his personal expenses
Gustave Eiffel is really an inspiration to me 

 The structure was built between 1887 and 1889 as the entrance arch for the Exposition Universelle , a World's Fair marking the centennial celebration of the French Revolution.

I really enjoy seeing this tower, each and every time i pass i always have an amazed happy feeling, but didn't know that being on the top of it and seeing Paris from above would be such a breath Taking experience.It is surely a must see even if you have to wait in the line for hours to get on top.


  1. A dream that fills us with dreams! Wonder why people resist dreaming, though what gives reality any beauty is only our imagination.

  2. Thank you Dee and Priapusdionysis for your comments .
    I myself Believe in dreams, but i guess people are afraid to dream because they are afraid to be disappointed but in fact if we don't have dreams we cannot move forward.

  3. WOW :D It's indeed beautiful , i guess it's a very nice feeling to be on the top of anything in this world you just see things from other angles ..I liked this post Maria !
