'Tourists at the Eiffel Tower'
The well known ironwork of the Eiffel tower, on this day as with most days swarming with tourists basking in the towers magnificence.
*The Tower is made of iron built on the Champ de Mars beside the River Seine in Paris. It is the tallest structure in Paris and among the most recognized symbols in the world. Named after its designer, engineer Gustave Eiffel, it is a premier tourist destination.

The tower stands 300 m (1000 ft) high, which is about 75 stories. Including the 20.75 m (70 ft) antenna, the structure is 320.75 m (1070 ft) high which is about 81 stories. At the time of its construction in 1889, the tower replaced the Washington Monument as the tallest structure in the world, a title it retained until 1930, when New York City's Chrysler Building (319 m/1063.33 ft tall) was completed.

*The Eiffel Tower alone draws 6.2 million visitors yearly, So no wonder it is so busy day in day out.
