Gustave Eiffel”s apartment had a lot of things going for it: beautiful furnishings, a grand piano, and its prime location were major highlights. And that”s before the fact that it was located on the third level of the tower he designed. After all, what”s the point of bringing such an architectural masterpiece into being if you don”t have a cool place to crash in it?

After the Eiffel Tower opened in 1889, Eiffel himself would entertain some of the greatest scientific minds in his pied-a-terre high above Paris. For many years, Eiffel”s apartment was off limits to tourists, but you can peer into it today and see what it was like in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

What a beautiful apartment. The only problem with living there is that people would think you were a prank caller any time you ordered delivery. And what if the elevator ever broke down? Yikes.
