  5.This is what Paris looks like from the Eiffel Tower.

  In fact the photo does not show the city from all sides so you can imagine how cool it is to be there. But one has to wait for a couple of hours in the line to enter the tower.

  实际上这张照片并不能全方位展示巴黎这座城,所以你可以想象于埃菲尔铁塔往下俯瞰会是多么壮观!可要想登塔,你得排上好几个小时的队。

  

  6. There are over thirty replicas of the Eiffel Tower around the world.

  世界各地有30多个复制埃菲尔铁塔的复制品。

  7. The Eiffel Tower was not intended to be permanent.

  人们最初并不打算永久保留埃菲尔铁塔。

  They planned to take it down in 1909 and transport it to some other place. Finally they refused the idea and started to use the tower as a giant radio antenna.

  1909年他们打算拆塔,并将其迁至它处。最终他们打消了这个点子,开始将此塔作为一个大型无线电天线。

  8. The Eiffel Tower in Paris has a light show that runs for 5 minutes an hour, every night, until dawn. For New Year celebration the Tower twinkles even more amazingly ten minutes of every hour.

  巴黎埃菲尔铁塔从晚上到拂晓每小时都会有一场5分钟的灯光秀。庆贺新年时,埃菲尔铁塔的灯光秀甚至更加精彩,每小时进行10分钟。

  10. During WWII, when Hitler visited Paris, the French cut the lift cableson the Eiffel tower so that Hitler would have to climb the steps if he wanted to reach the top.

  希特勒在二战期间造访巴黎时,法国人砍断通至埃菲尔铁塔顶端的电缆,这样希特勒要是想登顶就不得不拾级而上。

  The lifts were repaired only in 1946. During the Nazi occupation the tower was closed for public.

  直到1946年电梯缆线才被修复。在巴黎被纳粹占领期间,埃菲尔铁塔不向公众开放
