Webcam in the central part of Paris, with which we can see in real time the most important tourist attraction of the city – the Eiffel Tower. The huge metal structure erected in the distant 1889 quickly became the main symbol of Paris and all of France, although initially many residents of the city treated the tower negatively and demanded to dismantle it as soon as possible (in the opinion of the creative intelligentsia, the tower spoiled the appearance of the city). With this webcam you can see almost the entire Eiffel Tower, as well as the section of the River Seine with bridges to the left of the tower, the nearest city quarters and the majestic Sacré-Cœur basilica, which is at the highest point of the city – on the hill of Montmartre (in the background of this webcams of Paris).
Since the Eiffel Tower is located in the central part of Paris, on the Champs de Mars, with the help of this webcam you can see in real time the weather in the city. On cloudy winter days, the top of the tower is hidden behind clouds. Nowadays the height of the tower is 324 meters (with an antenna), but initially it was 300.6 meters in height and about 40 years (until 1930) was the tallest building in the world. Despite the high cost of construction, which is caused by the complexity of construction and a huge amount of metal, the Eiffel Tower paid off already in the first year of the World Exhibition in Paris, to the opening of which this tower was built as a temporary structure. In the future, the Eiffel Tower began to bring huge pure profits (a few tens of millions of euros per year) and its dismantling was out of the question.
Moreover, for many years the Eiffel Tower has been considered the most popular among all the world’s toll attractions. Also, the object is often called the most popular sight for photography. Perhaps that is why the online webcam of Paris with a view of the Eiffel Tower is also very popular, because not everyone can visit Paris in real life yet, and many people want to see the genious creation of Gustave Eiffel (the chief architect of the tower) online. Moreover, the webcam works around the clock. Including evening time, when shortly before midnight the Eiffel Tower starts to sparkle like a real diamond. A timer with the current time in France you can see at the top of this webcam in Paris. Currently, a new Paris webcam has been added to the site with a view of the Eiffel Tower from the height of the Montparnasse Tower, the live view of which is provided by Viewsurf. I wish you a pleasant virtual trip to Paris!
