The landmark of Paris, possibly the most famous landmark on earth- La Tour Eiffel.
From any angle, in black and white, sepia, or illustrious color photos, just spectacular. Yet, even the best photography does not to justice to it.
You must go in person to experience the tower. Whether viewing it from a sidewalk cafe, a rooftop garden, or from a boat on the Seine, if you are a visitor or blessed enough to be a local, it is difficult to pull your eyes away from this magnificent work of art.
The only thing more beautiful than the Tower itself is the city which surrounds it.
