7th arr., Champ de Mars
1.0007 feet high, built as a monument to the Great Exhibition of 1889. One of the most famous landmarks but these days less popular with visitors than the Beaubourg. You can take a lift to the viewing platforms (1st, 2nd and 3rd) or climb the 1.710 steps as far the top from where the views, on a clear day, extend for some 45 miles. There is an audio-visual of the history of the tower on the first stage, and bars and restaurants including the highly regarded Jules Verne restaurant on the second floor of the south leg, with its own pricate lift, one of the very best restaurant in Paris.
