Time-lapse Tuesday: the Eiffel Tower

January 27, 2015 G Adventures

It’s Tuesday, so once again it’s “time” to “lapse” it up! (See what we did there?) Each week, we’ll share a new way of looking at this big blue planet of ours. While a photo does a great job of capturing what we see with our own eyes, a time-lapse reveals just how little the eye can see. Venez avec nous à Paris to watch the Eiffel tower light up at night.

At 324m (1,063 ft) tall, the Eiffel tower is the tallest structure in Paris. At the time of construction, it beat out the Washington Monument to become the tallest man-made structure in the world, and held tight for 41 years. No visit to Paris is complete without a tip of the hat to this engineering marvel.

Getting There
