Eiffel Tower Expands its Virtual Presence

eiffel_towerThe Eiffel Twer isn’at just the most visited spot in Paris. It’s also a rapidly growing on-line presence.

The expanded website provides news (the tower is undergoing its 19th repainting, and the West elevator is closed); interactive videos of Paris as seen from the tower; and a 3D virtual visit of the tower.

The site also allows you to send free e-post cards and download an Eiffel Tower screen saver.

And if you wish you had bought snowglobes, paper weights, or an Eiffel Tower mug or lamp when you were there, fret no more. All of these and more are available from the official boutique website.

By the end of the year, you’ll be able to buy your tickets to the tower at the site, and avoid waiting in the long ticket lines.
