Paris hasn’t been shy about slapping on sexxxy new attractions to the 127-year-old Eiffel Tower over the past few years — what with the glittering lights and glass floors. But the latest addition is designed to be neither seen or heard.
Here’s a fun but depressing Sunday evening fact: taking and sharing photos of the Eiffel tower at night is a copyright violation that could land you with a hefty fine (not that it’s stopped the selfie-snapping masses, of course).
In 1889, Paris unveiled the magnificent Eiffel Tower. It was a worldwide sensation. London, meanwhile, was green with envy. Not about to be outdone, city officials announced a competition for a grand monument of its own, and revealed 68 of the entries in a showcase catalog.
