The views from this place are unique and spectacular, a great place to take pictures and the view of the Eifel tower is very impressive. The fountains are also spectacular. If you can, you should also visit at night. The fountains and the Eifel tower are lit up for spectacular pictures.

Across the Seine River From Eiffel Tower stands the magnificent Palais de Chaillot which is home to several museums ). As you walk up from the river you enter the Trocadéro garden with its magnificent fountain with a range of powerful water cannon creating a changing display. The display is worth a visit in its own right. Going up the... More

From Eiffel Tower , across the Seine River stands the magnificent Palais de Chaillot (it is the home of several museums ). At the front is Trocadéro garden , with stone sculptures and very nicely designed maintained fountains. From Palais de Chaillot you can have picture perfect photos of the Eiffel Tower.

My visit to the Palais de Chaillot was very brief but definitely a memorable experience for me. I had come to the Trocadero specifically because I heard it was the best place to take pictures of the Eiffel Tower in its entirety and wow, was it! It was raining (not hard but substantially enough to get quite damp) and in... More

Great view of the tower, clean and tidy. Annoyingly lots of people trying to sell Eiffel towers, five for one euro... Grates after a while. Fountains were well maintained.

Perched on the top of the low Chaillot, this set of buildings is made up of a couple of towers and a pair of semi-circular wings. However, it's probably best known for its viewing plaza which give fantastic unobstructed views of the Eiffel Tower. It's arguably the best place to photograph the Eiffel Tower (in its entirety) on a clear... More

This is a great place to visit each time you are in Paris. Restaurants close by and a great view not just of the tower, but if the entire city of Paris.

It is beautifully designed building in its own right. Magnificent view of it from distance on the Eiffel Tower. most enjoyed by walking around the gardens and fountains at the front or up on the curved frontage with the rest of the tourists. Always something going on and the street sellers are entertaining. Right next to some fabulous bars and... More

A terrific place that we visited a few times during our visit both day and night. The reasons so we can have a terrific view of the Eiffel Tower and also just relax and stroll about. The bus from near our hotel would take us straight down here.

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.
