Great place to view the Eiffel Tower, very busy. See my Eiffel Tower review as it would be very similar. Space is limited to get a good view so be patient if you are going at night.

I found this the best view of the Eiffel Tower and a nice area to walk around. Visit with a good weather and probably late afternoon. I made my most inspired picture here. It is really lovely. We had the chance to watch as well a quite funny street artist show that seems to be some years there. All in... More

This was our last stop before packing up and leaving town and it was a great image to end on. From the top, the Eiffel Tower is straight ahead with an unobstructed view. Great place for photographers to get a straight on view. Walking down towards the river is a small park with a carousel and people lounging in the... More

The Palais has huge curved colonaded wings each ending in a huge pavillion. It is covered withsculptures and bas- relief sculptures. In the square there are huge golden sculptures. Overlooking the ornamental pools and fountains. Along the sides there are quieter garden areas. The view of the Eiffel Tower is excellent. Lots of stairs. The men selling touristy trinkets are...

Its a good place from where you can take Eiffel tower selfies :-) If you are hard pressed for time then you can skip this place, otherwise it would be a good idea to relax in the evening and take the eiffel tower night pictures especially the light show every hour

Eiffel Tower is best viewed from Torcadero which is approx 0.5 kms from the tower. You will get a full sight of the Eiffel Tower and is the most popular photography spot in entire Paris. The best time to visit Torcadero is every hour after sunset when the lights on the tower go on.

We went there a few times in the evening, it's a great place to take pictures of the Eiffel Tower. And of course, if you want to buy a souvenir, you'll find plenty there! We grabbed a sandwich at one of the food trucks parked there. For us, it was more like a place we walked by than a place... 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.
