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. The day when we were there, a guy... More

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.

One of the best views of the Eiffel Tower can be had from the Palais de Chaillot and the gardens of the Trocadéro in front. There are numerous statues and fountains, and extensive grassy banks where you can cool off and feel the spray from the water on hot days. Occasionally the powerful water cannons spring to life and send... More
