The Eiffel Tower is an iron lattice tower located in Paris, France, and is one of the most well known landmarks in the world. The tower was completed in 1889. It serves as …a tourist attraction, a venue for observations of the city of Paris, and as a location for TV and radio broadcast antennae. Named for its designer, engineer Gustave Eiffel, the tower was built as the entrance arch to the 1889 World's Fair. The tower stands 324 metres (1,063 ft) tall, about the same height as an 81-storey building. It was the tallest man-made structure in the world from its completion until the Chrysler Building in New York City was built in 1930. Not including broadcast antennas, it is the second-tallest structure in France after the 2004 Millau Viaduct. The tower has three levels for visitors. Tickets can be purchased to ascend, by stairs or lift, to the first and second levels. The walk to the first level is over 300 steps, as is the walk from the first to the second level. The third and highest level is accessible only by lift. Both the first and second levels feature restaurants. The tower has become the most prominent symbol of both Paris and France, often in the establishing shot of films set in the city. The Eiffel Tower is a famous monument. It is an iron lattice tower on the Champ De Mars. The Eiffel Tower ( French : Tour Eiffel , [tuÊ ÉfÉl] ) is a 19th century iron lattice tower located on the Champ de Mars in Paris that has become both a global icon of France and one of the most recognizable structures in the world. The Eiffel Tower, which is the tallest building in Paris ,  is the single most visited paid monument in the world; millions of people ascend it every year. Work on your grammer >:( The eiffel tower is a block of very tall metal. I love the view from there though :)
For a World Exhibition in 1889, and to showcase how steel and iron could be used to erect tall buildings..
you can drive or by plane if you are across the ocean.
Because it is named after the French engineer Gustave Eiffel, whochampioned the construction and whose company eventually built it. It was designed by Gustav Eiffel.

There are three levels to the tower, the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. Both of the bottom 2 levels contain various stores and restaurants. The top floor contains a small staircase leadin…g to the very top of the tower outside, overlooking all of Paris. There is an elevator the that goes to all three floors but the only way to get to the very top is by stairs. There is a large staircase that you can take to get to all of the floors but many people choose the elevator...it's a lot less painfull. I know all of this because I have been there!! :D

The tower has the appearance of being 3 separate towers due to the 3 different observation decks. This is a practical as well as aesthetic move by the architect as the additio…n of the two lower observation decks assists with structural reinforcement as well as providing the ability to serve the thousands of people a day who tour the tower, instead of trying to have them all crammed at the very top deck.
The Eiffel tower is no more the world's tallest structure (it was between 1889 and 1930) Since then, the Chrisler building, the Empire state building, nine TV masts, and the B…urj tower in DubaÃ¯ have all claimed the title of world's tallest structure.

It is now - and TV too, of course. In fact, it was the invention of radio that saved the tower from demolition. Marconi used it for the first transatlantic transmission, and i…t was plainly to the advantage of France to have the highest aerial in Europe.
