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 has 8 gilded statues on the terrace and is home to several museums including “Musee National de la Marine (Marine Museum) and the Musee d l’homme. Not to mention that is has the most spectacular view of the Eiffel Tower. It is Easily accessible via Metro. It is a must see.

The hill of the Trocadero used to be the site of the village of Chaillot in medieval times. The location of this place is stunning, situated just... More

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

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.
