From the Palace de Chaillot you have the best view on the Eiffel Tower. I recommend the Theatre National of Chaillot specialized in modern ballets. Once i saw the theatre reserved for an American wedding : magnificent, unique !

Well millions have stood here and looked at the amazing view of the Eiffel tower. Plenty of room for everyone but be careful of the people selling all the souveniers, they can be very agressive

A nice place to enjoy cool breeze. If fountains are running they make the whole atmosphere just amazing. It is one of the best places to sit and enjoy the view of Eiffel Tower. If lucky, you may find a group of artists performing there (entertainers, dancers etc.).

Liked the Palais de Chaillot which we visited during our trip to France Located at Tracadero, this place has lovely fountains and gardens lining the imposing building structures all around. Good view of the other side of the Seine and the Eiffel from here.

The palais de Chaillot is an impressive piece of architecture built in the 1930s at the site of the erstwhile palais de Trocadero which was demolished and the current palais constructed there on.

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.

Neighborhood Profile
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.
