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!)

This building has a history and is among the largest concert hall in Paris. It has been managed by several good theater stars (Theatre National Populaire, Jean Vilar, George Wilson, Antoine Vitez, Jérome Savary). It helped introduce theater creations to lower income families. There are of lot of shows throughout the year. The view of the Trocadero gardens and of... More

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

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.
