01 Apr Happy Birthday Eiffel Tower
Who is 125 years old, but looks 25? The best looking gal in France celebrates today – happy birthday Eiffel Tower! The tower is like a best-dressed woman in Paris. By day she shows her strong lean legs, dressed classically in black with modern accessories and poses statuesque-like. But come dark, she transforms into the epitome of elegance. Dress her up with a vibrant accessory of lights and she becomes a beacon of sexy, but subtle beauty. Chic, but not overpowering she casts a glow in The City of Light that draws your attention to her without being overbearing. Sparkly in dress, but still demure in nature.
Many people want to know where is the best place to get a great photo of the tower. My recommendation is to climb the steps of the Arc de Triomphe on a sunny day to get a good vantage point to snap an unobstructed view. The photo shown here was taken from the top on my last visit to Paris with my sisters. It wasn’t even a sunny day, but the picture came out super. I can only imagine if it was a clear day; it would have been even more spectacular.
The tower is my favorite iconic landmark in the world. What’s yours?
