Google Maps Now Has Street View At The Top Of The Eiffel Tower In Paris
If you've ever wanted to take in the views from the top of the Eiffel Tower but you suffer from crippling vertigo, then Google Maps has got you covered. Now you can take a tour around the top of Paris from the comfort of your computer screen.
Despite feeling majorly intrusive, Google Maps has become something that we couldn't live without. Need to find your local supermarket? Google Map it. Want to talk a virtual stroll down Las Vegas Boulevard? Google Map it. Want to see how long it'd take for you to walk to work? Google Map that trip.
Recently we've uncovered some of the more bizarre things to appear on Google Maps, like a lady picking her bum, which is fairly disgusting. But this new addition is definitely something you'll want to take a closer look at.
Standing at an impressive 324 metres tall to the tip, you'll be able to spot plenty of popular Parisian attractions including the Arc de Triomphe, Montmartre, the river Seine and Notre Dame, to name a few.
More than 7 million people visit the tower each year to take in the spectacular views, according to the attraction's official website, with over 250 million people from around the world visiting since it first opened in 1889. So why put up with the hustle and bustle and endless queuing when you can peruse Paris at the touch of a button?
Here's a fun fact for you. French Author Guy de Maupassant hated the Eiffel Tower so much that he ate his meals under it, because that's the only place in Paris where there isn't a view of it.
To enjoy the views, copy and paste this into Google Maps: 48.8583154,2.2943783 and drag the little yellow dude to the top.
Cheaper than a flight to Paris too.
