It’s hard to separate thoughts of Paris from thoughts of the Eiffel Tower. Here are some additional views of the city’s most indelible symbol.
The Tower seen from the Seine.
The tower straddles the Seine on the west side of Paris. The photo gives an idea what was involved in May 2019 when a man with no ropes and dressed in casual clothes tried to scale the landmark.
The tower was repainted in preparation for the 2024 Summer Olympics. It is repainted about every seven years. It takes 60 tons of paint.
On the streets, the tower just seems to appear sometimes.
From the Seine, It can be dominating.
It may be illegal to publish this photo because those 20,000 bulbs are lighted. The tower itself is not copyrighted any longer, but the lighting was installed more recently.
This 40-foot-high replica of the Statue of Liberty has been standing on an island in the Seine within view of the tower for more than 100 years.
