The Tour Eiffel Celebrates 120 Years!
2009 Marks the 120th anniversary of the Tour Eiffel. It was constructed for the International Exposition of 1889 and it remained the tallest structure in the world until 1930. From now until August 31 an exhibition celebrating the work of Gustave Eiffel is being held at the Hotel de Ville.
On a personal note, July 2009 also marks the 20th anniversary of my first visit to Paris. I was here for 100th birthday celebration of the Tour Eiffel, fireworks and all!
I've been in love with Paris ever since.
