Eiffel Tower Picture
Famous French Painters
and Our Photos Today

Every time I go to Paris I can’t resist taking an Eiffel Tower picture or two… from my first visit at the age of 13 when my dad took the pictures till now. Certainly we think of it when we think of the culture of France.

It's one of the top monuments of Paris visible almost everywhere from the city center. There are so many different vantage points and angles. Stunning views both day, and night when it's all illuminated.
