We have selected Tour Eiffel as the world's very best website on the Eiffel Tower.
The Tour Eiffrel website is the official website of the Eiffel Tower. It is available in seven languages, and the front page can be chosen to show images of the Eiffel Tower by night or day. The website is organized into the following main sections: Eiffel Tower News, Practical Information, Eiffel Tower Documentation, The Eiffel Tower at Leisure, and Professional Services.
The Eiffel Tower News section contains current news, and also an archive of news anecdotes from the last hundred years. These can be searched by selecting the year of your choice.
The Eiffel Tower at Leisure section includes a 3D virtual visit to the Eiffel Tower, two 360 degree panoramic views of the Eiffel Tower, and downloadable 3D models of the Eiffel Tower. There is also a view of Paris from the Eiffel Tower; this can be panned using your cursor, and provides labels for buildings of interest. The user can zoom in and out using the shift and control keys. There is a Video Gallery with 11 video clips, including clips of New Year's Eve Fireworks, and the Highest Skating Rink in Paris. There is a Virtual Gallery describing the history of the Eiffel Tower, and a set of e-Postcards.
