Interesting Fact # 1133 - The Eiffel Tower

According to the Times newspaper, it takes 60 tonnes of paint to paint the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

(It takes 25 painters 18 months to finish and it's had 17 coats since it opened on March 31,1889. Nowadays it's repainted every 7 years, more often than my poor old house.)
