9 Unique Views of the Eiffel Tower

Whether you’re brave enough to trek to the top or would prefer to stay firmly grounded, a trip to Paris requires at least one photograph of the Eiffel Tower. From the top, from underneath, or from a distance, this famous piece of French architecture is a staple of the Parisian skyline.

Built for the 1889 Paris Exposition (Exposition Universelle),  the Eiffel Tower was not meant to be permanent. Before its planned demolition in 1909, the tower proved useful for radio communications and meteorological observations.

In honor of the nearly 130-year-old monument, we’ve collected nine Trover discoveries that show unique views of the Eiffel Tower.
