Worlds most recognized tower

Author Patrick Rizio at the Eiffel Tower, Paris

Mention Paris and one’s mind thinks Eiffel Tower. Mention Eiffel Tower and one’s mind thinks Paris. The two are inseparable, two sides of the same coin, like electricity and magnetism. When it was completed in 1889 it was the entrance to the world’s fair, and the tallest structure in Paris. If you include its 24 meter antenna it still is. It is painted every 7 years to stop rust. (To do the whole tower takes 60 tons of paint). 6.91 MILLION people ascended the tower in 2015, making it the most visited paid monument in the world.

With security concerns and an average of 25,000 visitors a day the lines to go up are, well, long. However, the park right next to the tower affords terrific views. At night when it is lit up, it becomes a thing of awe and beauty.

Where will Lacost show up next?
