A Tall Piece of Paris 


Iconic images imported from the heart of the city of love bring a certain “je ne sais quoi” to Sydney’s CBD this month.


Pâtisseries, champagne, chocolate and now art – Hotel Sofitel Wentworth in Sydney’s CBD hotel knows all about the French way of life.
Now – just in time to mark the 120th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower – they’re bringing us an exhibition showing photos, art deco posters, film rolls and much more of the iconic building’s history.


Created for the 1989 World Fair and weighing 10,100 tonnes, Gustave Eiffel’s design was an architectural feat at the time and still evokes an emotive response from visitors.


This comprehensive collection of memorabilia and photographs traces the Parisian icon’s development from controversial construction to the world’s tallest building. (Before it was trumped in 1930 by New York’s Chrysler Building.)


Get a glimpse of why the 324 metres tall tower holds a special place in the heart of Parisians and visitors. See Paris and die? We don’t think so – just go to the Sofitel Wentworth near Chifley Square before December 15.
