Self experiences

When I went to the Eiffel tower I went all the way to the top there. It is a glass floor and wired fence so air can travel through easily. There is a restaurant on the second floor and trust, me it is very expensive! The price range is about 65€ a person and it seats 200 people. It even has a dress code of some what dressy. It is a Traditional French cuisine. On ground level it serves drinks and refreshments. This is also where my parents had the wedding dinner.

Why I chose this topic

I chose this topic because, well who doesn't know about the Eiffel Tower it is the number 1 most popular sites and it is found in the famous city of Paris France. I was going to do the catacombs but I changed my mind (because Blake got it) and I picked what is known as the Iron Lady.
