Unmistakable, unmissable, ridiculously large but surprisingly graceful.  The Eiffel Tower is the icon of Paris, adorning millions of walls and mantelpieces around the world in the photos, slightly wonky paintings and miniature models sold in every Paris tourist spot.  It has rarely featured in Beyond the Window Box because why would anyone want to see yet another picture of the Eiffel Tower?

 

 

Still, this is Paris, so here’s the Tower in all its glory as night falls on a cold, crisp winter day.
