Unveiled at the Paris World Exposition of 1889, the Eiffel Tower was finished despite much skepticism and was nearly scrapped two decades later, but ultimately kept for “its usefulness as a radio tower.”

Of course, now it’s the primary tourist landmark in Paris.

We trust our hipmunk will come back from his trip with a belly full of macaroons and delicious cheese, not a case of Paris Syndrome. Thank you for the lovely photo, Tommy Hayes! (via Hipmunk Fan Photos)
