    18 July 1887 The tower had been a subject of some controversy, attracting criticism both from those who didn't believe it feasible and from those who objected on artistic grounds. Just as work began at the Champ de Mars, the "Committee of Three Hundred" (one member for each metre of the tower's height) was formed, led by Charles Garnier and including some of the most important figures of the French arts establishment.

paris, france - I've been here numerous time and the Tour d'Eiffel doesn't dissapoint…but what does is the city outside of the tourist spots. When you finally get away from all the people, Parisians are not that friendly, and the city is FILTHY! Remember, they did invent the plague! But there are 3 things the French do best… WINE, CHEESE, & PASTRIES! Does a girl really NEED anything else?
