SVOTD: StreetView OThe Day: Eiffel Tower - Paris, France.
Let's start with some facts first:

Google StreetView provide a great virtual access to Eiffel tower in many different ways.
We will start from the top:


















- Eagle eye over the city from a 360 camera which was mounted on the top of Eiffel tower. Impressive view which you can't have access to it in real life -Unless you are the one who mounted the camera or you are on the maintenance team for the tower's beacon. (click on the button in the top right corner for full screen)



- A tour at the top floor area, which is accessible by tourists usually.



- A tour at the 3rd floor, in this area you will see so a display over the windows showing you Eiffel Tower compared to some high buildings and structure from around the world. Each structure is posted in the same place where it is located to the tower itself.



Because people likes to write crazy stuff on walls and in some unique locations I found a few words written in Arabic in this floor.
The words are (Libya, Muammar Gaddafi)
