Did you know?!

The Eiffel Tower was only ever supposed to be a temporary installation, intended to stand for 20 years after being built for the 1889 World Fair.

Visitors to the Eiffel Tower have to climb 1,665 steps to reach the top – unless they take the elevator!

It’s believed that Paris only has one stop sign in the entire city.

All the trees in Paris are referenced and measured. And there are 470,000 of them.

There are 6,100 rues – or streets – in Paris; the shortest one, Rue des Degrés, is just 5.75 metres long.

France is the second largest producer and consumer of renewable energy in the EU.
