Eiffel Tower

5 Avenue Anatole France, 75007
Built by Gustave Eiffel for the 1889 World's Fair, the Eiffel Tower became the world's tallest artificial structure until 1930 when the Chrysler Building in New York was built. Although today it is one of the most visited tourist attractions in the world, it was not well received by the French at the time. In addition, it should be dismantled after 20 years, since it should only be a temporary exhibition. Fortunately, Gustave Eiffel has convinced the government to keep the design and use it as a radio telegraphy station. There are 1,665 steps leading to the top, but you can only take the stairs to the second floor. An elevator will take you to the top floor. Originally only the second floor was open to the public, but now all three levels are accessible and have award-winning restaurants. In the evening, the Eiffel Tower is illuminated with 20,000 light bulbs. Please note that there are no changing rooms. Therefore, do not bring a large baggage or pushchair if you can not fold it. In 2017, it was announced that the metal fence around the Eiffel Tower would be replaced by a bullet-proof wall to prevent terrorist attacks.

Conciergerie

2 Boulevard du Palais, 75001 Paris, France
Conciergerie is a former royal palace, built in Gothic style, that once served as a prison during the French Revolution.

The road led directly to the guillotine from here. This establishment is perfect for history lovers. There aren't many exhibits here, but you are going to learn a lot through reading and listening about the times of The Reign of Terror, the Restoration of the Bourbons, but you are also going to hear about the prisons during Middle Ages, where the wealthy could afford a cell which was rather luxurious (books, writing supplies, light), and the poorest were left to rot and die in the darkness with vermin.

The quality of the product dropped rapidly though, and by 1860, residential buildings came to stand in place of the vineyards. The vineyards as we can see them today were only reopened in the 1930s. Nowadays, they produce as many as 1700 bottles per year, having all the popular varieties like the Gamay, the Pinot as well as the famous Sauvignon.
