One of the most recognizable structures in the world and a symbol of Paris (and France) for many, the Eiffel Tower was designed by Gustave Eiffel and built for the 1889 World's Fair (Exposition Universelle).
- French writer Guy de Maupassant often lunched at the restaurant in the tower, not because he particularly liked it, but because it was "the only place in Paris where I don't have to see [the tower]"
