French police have recently cracked down on the illegal souvenir sellers who frequent the area beneath the monument. (Fact from www.bbc.co.uk/...)

The Eiffel Tower (La Tour Eiffel) was built by Gustave Eiffel and was erected in 1889 as the entrance arch to the 1889 World's Fair, it has become both a global cultural icon of France and one of the most recognizable structures in the world. The tower is the tallest structure in Paris and the most-visited paid monument in the world; 7.1 million people ascended it in 2011.
