Google Maps Street View takes us up 1,710 steps to the top of the Eiffel Tower



Okay, so yesterday’s tour of an Arizona carwash wasn’t the most exciting place we’ve visited through Google Street View, but today they’ve completely redeemed themselves. Buckle your seat belts, boys and girls, cuz we’re flying to Paris! And what place on Earth is more iconic than France’s own Eiffel Tower? There’s a good chance I’ll never live to see the Eiffel Tower in my lifetime, so I find it truly amazing that with just a few clicks, I can take a 360 degree virtual tour of the monument thanks to the power of Google Maps Street View, and the Google Cultural Institute.

Construction of the Eiffel Tower

It’s all rather magical and the view from the top (1,710 steps) is completely stunning. You can learn everything there is to know about the Eiffel Tower by visiting its page on the Google Cultural Institute’s site, where you’ll find early design sketches, historic photos, and even a Thomas Edison voice recording of Gustave Eiffel himself. Beautiful.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.
