Best view of Eiffel Tower

Even although there is construction work going on at the Trocadero (where you will find this Palais) you can still find a marvelous view of the Eiffel Tower.

Incredible exhibit at Cite de Architecture. The important monuments/sculpture in France were reproduced (in original size), as well as stained glass windows and wall/ceiling murals. Another floor is devoted to models of French buildings, from ancient to contemporary. Free audioguide.

This is why every year millions of people come to Paris! They have an iconic landmark and they augment it with an equally suitable place to enjoy viewing it. On a hill over a river one has a perfect location. Then add beautiful meaningful gilded statues, green grass and trees, and of course splashing water with high shooting canon jets.... More

Wow this place is so cool, especially when heading toward the Eiffel Tower from the Trocadéro Metro station. The two curving Neo-Classical building face the Eiffel tower and after taking the stairs down from the plaza you will see the graceful Trocadéro Fountains. We didn't go into the buildings, due to time. Both buildings house museums and their beautiful facades... More

A great place from where you can have stunning view of Eiffel Tower. A place which is lovely in itself for awesome photography…. The gardens, fountains, walk around the place is simple adorable!!! And also this looks brilliant from Top of Eiffel Tower.

I felt good standing/visiting in this place of much history including being a feature of the 1937 World's Fair, a place where the evil Hitler stood, first NATO headquarters, and now several museums (which I didn't visit, not time!)

It is on the top of Trocadero you Have an amazing view from up there to the Eiffel tower and the Trocadero garden underneath .the Palais Chaillot itself is beautiful and huge , but depends what is showing, we saw the Light Bird and we didn't really liked it.

Staying in Trocadero

Neighborhood Profile
Trocadero
This is the neighborhood of grand and impressive Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher, florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury and splendor, all with a view over Paris and its most famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings are small art galleries and homes of historical significance. With a rich legacy from 19th century politics, art, and architecture, you can’t help but be reminded of the belle époque, the Universal Exhibitions and the nobility that have frequented and shaped these streets.
