This is one of my favorite spots in Paris. It has an amazing view of the Eiffel Tower and a fantastic fountain. We take a small picnic of cheeses, fruits and wine and enjoy the setting sun and the tower lighting up in the evening. Perfect spot for relaxing and taking in the Parisian culture.

The Trocadero offers a brilliant view of the Eiffel Tower. I would particularly recommend visiting at night, the only thing I would say is to be wary of the plenty of people selling Eiffel Towers and other assorted things such a s birds,laser pointers and catapult things. They can be quite persistent. Day and night it is worth a visit.

It is a long walk up but it is worth it! It is a must when you go to Paris to come and see the view from here at least once :)

A wonderful, relaxing, and interesting place to view the Eiffel Tower. The fountain is amazing and especially visually pleasing on a hot summer day. Along with viewing the Eiffel Tower it's also just a nice place to sit and people watch.

On a very hot day, we spent a very nice hour watching the fountains and cooling our feet in the water here. The view of the Eiffel is probably the best in the city and there were a couple of nice street vendors selling refreshments.

Lovely small gardens with a spectacular fountain which burst forth on the hour. Great views of the Seine to the Eiffel tower. This is the place to go to see the Eiffel Tower at night and watch the light show.

The best place in paris to view and photograph the Eiffel Tower. Early evening, when the sun is lower in the sky the tower appears bright orange in colour. Upon dusk, illumination presents another perspective worthy of a photo.

This place is different from what it was a decade or 2 ago. It is probably due to the large (understatement), that the park is now cordoned off - gone are the days where one can lie down next to the fountain and enjoy the ambience ... and the magnificence of Eiffel Tower. The place is now crowded with so... More

Excellent area to grab a glass of wine (or 3) a light snack and wait for the Eiffel Tower to light up at midnight. I very much enjoyed meeting people from around the world while in this area
