Picnic by the Eiffel Tower

 


The Eiffel Tower was built by Gustave Eiffel on the occasion of the Universal Exhibition of 1889 which celebrated the first centenary of the French Revolution. Its construction in 2 years, 2 months and 5 days, was a real technical and architectural performance.

The picnic was a technical achievement as well, as we ate the lunch portion near the base of the Eiffel, and the leftovers for dinner at a small park near Pont Neuf.
