Unless you are super motivated and haul yourself out of your warm hotel bed at about 4:00 a.m. to go wait in front of the ticket window, you will most likely encounter a swirl of people and chaos, upon arriving at the Eiffel Tower. At first glance, it will appear that the line is a large endless spiral with no beginning and end. This is because you will actually be looking at two different lines -- three, if you count the line for the restaurant elevator -- that end in the middle and weave underneath and around the exterior of the tower until they eventually virtually either meet up or overlap. The best way to determine the end of one of them is to pick a side, work backward from the ticket window, and follow the line until you get to the end. It doesn't matter which side you choose because everyone eventually ends up in the same place anyway and neither side has an advantage over the other. EVERYONE is dropped off at the second level and herded through another line before boarding the final elevator to the top.

The closest Paris Metro station to the Eiffel Tower is Champ de Mars / Tour Eiffel on line RER C. Other Metro stations close to the Eiffel Tower include Ecole Militaireon Line 8, and Bir-Hakeim on Line 6. The best view of the Eiffel Tower is actually from the opposite side of the river Seine at the Trocadéro, accessed by station Trocadéro on metro line 9 and line 6.

It cannot be any older than 1889, as the Eiffel tower wasn't built before.

No. The Eiffel tower is located in Paris, France. 1500 km away on the other side of the alps lies Rome, it's in Italy.

The Eiffel Tower has a maximum width at the square base of 124.9 meters (409 feet), with the base arch on each side 74.24 meters wide (243.6 feet).

The Eiffel Tower construction started in 1887, and ended in 1888. Although most people think the Eiffel Tower was made of steel, it was actually made out of puddled iron, which is a type of wrought iron melted. The Eiffel Tower was made out of 1808 pieces of puddled iron that were riveted together. The Eiffel Tower was built for the entrance for the World Exhibition, which was a celebration for the French Revolution. The Tower is now a national momentum of Paris. The many changes include a 160 meter long thermometer attached to the side of the tower, a skating rink on the first floor, a television antenna placed on top of the tower, a meteorology (weather) laboratory at the top of the Tower, and a printing press for a newspaper on the second floor.

You can just draw out one section of the eiffel tower on a piece of graph paper; then drawing the other two sections on other pieces of graph paper. Then, roll a slab for each side of the eiffel tower. Use a tableknife to cut out the sections from the clay. Cut out 4 pieces of each section for each side of the Eiffel Tower. Score and slip each side of the eiffel tower and put them together. Cover it with plastic and leave it overnight out. Then score and slip the rest of it together. Leave it overnight again. Make sure that the clay is still leather hard, or in the process in becoming bone dry. then incise the lines into the "eiffel tower" you have made. when fired, it will shrink 10%. Remember that when you roll the clay, you roll it to 3/8 of a inch if you want to make it quicker. If you are up to a challenge, you may roll it to something thinner. Make sure that is even thickness and smooth.

The names of 72 prominent French scientists and famous personalities are affixed on the sides of Eiffel Tower, just beneath the first platform - you can see 18 names per side, on each of the four sides.

There are different ways to go from Champ de Mars (the Eiffel tower) to the Arc de triomphe: using the underground, the bus or walking. - Using the underground: go to Bir-Hakeim bridge, 150 metres down the river, and step in Metro line 6 towards Charles-de-Gaulle - étoile. Step out there. - By bus: at the tower, take the bus line 82, change at Boissière for line 22 or line 30. Or go by foot to Place du Trocadéro on the other side of the river (3 minutes walk from the Eiffel tower), and board directly in a 22 or 30 bus. - Walking all the way (1.2 mile / 1.9 kilometre): Cross the Seine river from the Eiffel tower, follow Avenue d'Iéna (second right) all the way to the Arc. This will take about 20 minutes.

The metal girders expand slightly when exposed to heat. They only expand on the side directly hit by the sun, which makes it lean away from the sun.

you start out with you basic string position by putting the string through your pinky and thumb and sticking your index finger into each side. then when you have your basic position and to make the Eiffel tower you take your thumbs over the first x then into the next x. then you look at your thumbs and you take the lowest (closest to your hand) string loop with your mouth and bring it over your thumb so you just have your top loop. then you drop your pinky( you take the string off your pinky) and you have the cup'n'soucer. then to make the Eiffel tower you grab the top of the cup with your mouth and pull up and take your thumbs out and you've got an Eiffel tower. but the question i have is how do you put the zig zag lines on it?

Look on the passenger side strut tower for the vacuum line diagram.

A line does not in itself have any sides. One could however say that if you had to choose which side of a line to be on, then there are multiple answers:If the line is in one dimensional space, then it encompasses everything and you have zero sides to choose from.If the line is in two dimensional space, then you can be on one of two sides of that line.If the line is in three dimensional space, then there are an infinite number of sides to choose from.

The Eiffel tower is made of metal, which has the property to expand a little when exposed to heat. So as the side of the Eiffel tower which is exposed to sun expands a little, the summit of the antenna atop of the tower moves in the opposite direction. The span of the movement was calculated by Eiffel's team before buiding it, and the move at the very top described an oval of only a few centimeters (the oval could fit inside your dinner plate). That should be even less today as some metal beams most subject to the expansion had been replaced with a different metal to limit that phenomenon and the stress it could put on the structure.

On the east side of the Square Mile area (the ancient boundary of the city). The nearest Underground stop is Tower Hill, on the southeast corner of the Circle Line.

The Eiffel Tower is structurally sound and very stable due to it's structure and shape. It provides little wind resistance but bends ever so slightly on sunny days due to the expansion of the metal on the sun-facing side (only to around 10 cm). In 1956 the top floor was damaged by fire and it has been often hit by lightning due to its height.

Materials expand in the heat and contract in the cold. Metals are particularly susceptible to this affect. The tower even moves 'away' from the sun as the sun warms the side towards it. The top of the tower shifts 18cm away from the sun on a hot day. The coefficient of thermal expansion will determine exactly what is going on.

passenger side front strut tower. it is an in line fuel filter, just follow the fuel line from the motor.

From your question, I believe you are asking about the height of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. The official website lists the initial height (when it was built) as 312 meters (~1024 ft) and the current height with antennas as 324 meters (~1063 feet).I found the answer to this question using a simple Google search. I started at the google homepage:http:/www.google.comI then searched for "Eiffel tower" (without quotation marks). While the first returned result was a wikipedia article that listed the height of the tower, I wanted to check the answer against an authoritative source. The second result is the official Eiffel Tower website:http:/www.tour-eiffel.fr/teiffel/ukOn the left hand side of the page is a navigation bar. I clicked 'Documentation' and 'All you need to know about the Eiffel Tower'. This opened a PDF document that lists many interesting facts about the tower, its history, and a biography of its creator, Gustave Eiffel. You will need Adobe Acrobat reader to open this document - but I will include a link to it below:http://www.tour-eiffel.fr/teiffel/uk/documentation/pdf/about_the%20Eiffel_Tower.pdf?id=4_11Another fun thing that my google search turned up is a live webcam of the Eiffel tower. You can find that here:http://www.earthcam.com/france/paris/I hope that answers your question!

There isn't anything specifically religiously significant, more cultural. The cultural side has more to do with the fact that it was made out of iron and not something more expensive. Hope that helps :)
