But for the French, fashion goes deeper than labels and shopping. The people here equate being well dressed with good manners and putting there best foot forward.

We  offers 11 memorable places for getting the most out of the French capital.

1.Eiffel tower

Starting at the Eiffel Tower in the morning, snap the essential touristy shots before all the crowds arrive in the afternoon. The 300meter tower’ as it was first called, was erected in just over two years, to be the main attraction at the 1889 world fair. It held the records as the highest structure until 1930, when it was dethroned by Newyorks Chrysler building.

Gustave  Eiffel who focused on the project from start to finish which enabled its completion and its survival. Eiffel Tower stands 324 m tall and weighs 10,100 tons. Created in 2 years, 2 months and 5 days, it was built for the Exposition Universelle of 1889

After the fair and the first wave of curiosity ,the tower struggled  to find its destiny; the possibility of dismantling was considered

Gustave Eiffel tried to imagine a new function for the tower and financed wireless tests. The first World War made the importance of altitude for transmission clear.

Thus, its military use saved the tower and its use extended in the 1920s with the broadcast of the civilian radio program and the first television trials. It was for television broadcasting that a new antenna was placed at the top in 1959, pushing the height 321m. The development of tourism after the Second WorldWar earned renewed attendance; with seven million ascendants annually.

 You can go up the Eiffel Tower by the stairs or by lift. On the completely refurbished 1st floor, there are shops; on the 2nd, treat yourself to a gastronomic meal at the famous Jules Verne restaurant, 125 metres above ground. Finally on the 3rd floor you are at cloud level and have an exceptional 360° view!
