Some of the most popular art museums are located in France as well. At night, the Eiffel Tower (Tour Eiffel) is lighted up by thousands of flashbulbs, making the monument dazzling with lights and shining like diamond-studded jewellery. The flashbulbs start firing every hour, each time for about five minutes. It will be wonderful to take striking Eiffel Tower pictures while it is lighted up. Popular personalities who visited the tower through the years were Edith Piaf, Charles Aznavour, Georges Brassens, the first cosmonaut ever Yuri Gagarin, actors Jackie Chan, Chris Tucker, and Pierce Brosnan, popular music star Michael Jackson, the great golf champion Arnold Palmer.
