Place: Paris

Description: France's late 19th-century Universal Expositions made Paris an increasingly important centre of technology, trade, and tourism. Its most famous were the 1889 Exposition Universelle to which Paris owes its "temporary" display of architectural engineering progress, the Eiffel Tower, a structure that remained the world's tallest building until 1930; the 1900 Universal Exposition saw the opening of the first Paris M├ętro line.
