Constructed in 1889, the Eiffel Tower was initially criticised by numerous French artists, architects and intellectuals for its design. Today this metal phallus with its iconic profile is one of the world's most iconic monuments and entertains seven million visitors a year.

But while those seven million people can only visit the Eiffel Tower, vacation rental company HomeAway is giving four visitors the chance to sleep in it. That's right, spend the night on the first floor of the tower, which is 57 metres above the ground and with breathtaking views of the Arc de Triomphe, the Grand Palais, Sacre Coeur on Montmartre and the Seine River among others.

“Asians are among the most well-travelled in the world. We know that they’re always seeking unique places to visit and unusual activities to undertake and this is a not-to-be missed opportunity to vacation in one of the globe’s most loved landmarks," said Prashant Kirtane, Vice President, Asia, HomeAway.

Normally we wouldn't be participating in such marketing contest gimmicks but we're making an exception for this one. After all it's not every day you get to sleep in the Eiffel Tower. Imagine the social media validation you'll get.
