About the best view of the Tour Eiffel.

Easily accessible by Metro with a great view. Slight distraction with some construction, but the view is still there.

Great view of the Eiffel Tower. There was construction though when we were there and it blocked full pics of the Eiffel Tower. You have to get a little closer by the fountain to get a better view. It does get crowded and full of vendors selling things.

Nice place to stroll, admire the view with the Eiffel tower and relax. We went there in may, when everything was green and it was a real pleasure to be there on a sunny afternoon.

We were in Paris on an especially hot day and had a nice afternoon sitting and napping by the fountain here, right across from the Eiffel tower. It was nice to enjoy the tower, some street performers, and a good number of people were enjoying swimming around in the fountain. Our tour guide later told us it's illegal, but nobody... More

Trocadero is a nice and refreshing place with its fountains and grass. In addition, you get great views to the Eiffel Tower from there

Very nice place to enjoy a very beautiful view to the Eiffel Tower. The building is nice too and very close to it there is a market you can visit (at least on Saturdays).

They are doing some reconstruction work at the Trocadero but you can still find a great view of the Eiffel Tower. One of the staircases has been completely demolished. We spoke to a gentleman who visits everyday but he did not know why.

There is a big place where you can enjoy excellent cafés and food, then there is everyone's favorite spot to take photos of Eiffel Tower where you can find street shows sometimes and walk and relax on the gardens below, and don't forget the fireworks show on July 14th !

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.
