After bringing views from the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, to our computers, Google’s adventure-loving Street View team is at it again. This time it has scaled a monument that held the title of the tallest structure in the world for more than 40 years – the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
One of the most visited monuments in the world that attracts over 7 million tourists each year is now available for everyone to visit from the comfort of their couch. The team took their Street View Trolley to the viewing decks on the second and top floors and also captured 360-degree panoramic views of the beautiful Parisian skyline.
Additionally, for history lovers, Google’s Cultural Institute has collaborated with the Eiffel Tower Operating Company to present three digital exhibits that tell the story of this iconic monument. Entitled ‘The Birth of the Eiffel Tower’, ‘The Eiffel Tower’s Inauguration and First Visitors’ and ‘The Construction of the Eiffel Tower’, using photographs and engravings, these presentations tell us about the birth of the tower from when it was on the drawing board, to the construction of the tower itself.
