The Eiffel Tower

Today I am writing about the Eiffel Tower in Paris, which I visited last summer. 

The Eiffel Tower is a tall tower made of iron. It is called “La Tour Eiffel” in French. The Tower is named after Gustave Eiffel. He built the tower in 1889. This means that the tower is one hundred and fourteen years old!

The Eiffel Tower is three hundred and twenty four metres tall. It is the same height as an eighty one storey building. The Tower had three levels. You can walk to the first level and second levels, or take a lift. There are seven hundred and four steps to the second level. To get to the third level, you travel up in a glass lift one hundred and eighty metres – It’s a long way! 

Last year I visited the Eiffel Tower. When I visited the Eiffel Tower we stopped on each floor, and then took the lift right to the top. It was very high! When we got to the top of the tower, we discovered that it swayed in the wind. It was a very odd sensation to feel it moving.

From the Eiffel Tower you can see over the whole of Paris! I saw the Arc De Triomphe and the River Seine which runs through the middle of Paris. It was really amazing.

I enjoyed visiting the Eiffel Tower in France, and I would like to go again one day. 

Have you ever been to the Eiffel Tower?
