The Eiffel Tower at Last

It's over 900 feet high, it was built in the 1880s for the Paris Exposition, Parisiens hated it until they grew to love it, and Gustave Eiffel, who also designed the framework for the Statue of Liberty, kept a little office at the "sommet" where he received visiting dignitaries like Thomas Edison.

Now that we know all that, it's time to ride the elevator cars that creep up the legs to the second level, and then stand in line to take one of the four smaller elevators all the way to the top.

We were up and down in a bit over 90 minutes, with plenty of time to take in the views.
