If you want to view the Eiffel Tower in all its splendor, you should go to Paris in the summer. According to the Los Angeles Times, the 1,062-foot monument grows more than six inches taller in the heat due to thermal expansion, which allows the iron structure to literally grow. However, if you want the best view, go during the day because the tower begins to shrink as the sun sets.
