Constructed in 1889 by Gustave Eiffel for the World's Fair, the Iron Lady is more than just a monument, it is a symbol. It houses a weather station and a TV and radio broadcasting site and offers unbeatable views of Paris. If you are really lucky, you can have lunch in the Jules Verne restaurant perched 410 feet above the ground. Otherwise, you can eat on the lawns of the Jardin du Trocadéro. The park stands on a 23-acre site, next to the Palais de Chaillot, also dating back to 1937. After crossing over the Pont d'Iéna, the visit continues through the Champs de Mars, a huge public garden.
