Landmarks and Historic Buildings

Built for the 1889 World's Fair, the Exposition Universelle, the Eiffel Tower is undoubtedly Paris' most recognisable landmark. Visitors can walk up the stairs of the first 2 levels and take a lift to the top or take the lift all the way up for brilliant views of the city.

Another great view of Paris can be had from the Tour Montparnasse, where you also get a wonderful view of the Eiffel Tower itself. The Eiffel Tower has 2 restaurants so you can enjoy a meal with the spectacular view and there is a marked trail for children to follow and discover more about the tower.
