Sightseeing
♥ ♥ ♥ Did you know ? The Eiffel Tower has often changed her looks with the application of different colors : reddish-brown color at her opening, yellow a decade later, then yellow-brown and chestnut brown and finally the current, specially mixed “Eiffel Tower Brown” since 1968. Every seven years, painters apply 60 tons of paint, with 3 shades, progressively lighter with elevation, in order to augment the structure’s silhouette against the canvas of the Parisian sky. From home, you will enjoy the spectacle day and night :).
