Long Description:
The Eiffel Tower is an example of forced perspective. The one-tenth replica of the Eiffel Tower was constructed using Gustave Eiffel's original blueprints. If you looked at the Eiffel Tower today as it stands in Paris, it would have similar coloring to the Statue of Liberty in New York. However in Epcot, the Eiffel Tower is more tan and pinkish. The reason is the France pavilion here represents the late 1800s and the Eiffel Tower is the same color it would have been then.

Posted coordinates are for a location with a decent viewing angle, out along the promenade. Guests are not permitted behind the buildings for a better picture or coordinates.
