I best place to take pics!

This is a great spot to take pics! I stopped here while riding the hop on hop off bus. It's very busy, so if you want a great pic, I recommend going in the morning.

Truly magnificent attraction flanked by the Eiffel Tower, beautiful lawns, fountains, lights and piazzas. On a sunny day its doubly attractive. Its very symbolic of the Republic and France as a country. Its very trendy and a must visit whilst in Paris. Surely one of the most visited places on Earth, rain or shine.

The Trocadéro offers some of the best views of the Eiffel Tower, being right in front of it (the river separates the two of them). It is obviously overcrowded by tourists taking pictures of themselves, but also by people (illegally) selling cheap souvenirs (PS: ignore them!)

As many other people have said if you want a great view of the Eiffel tower at night this really is the place. On the other side of the Pont d'lena this hill provides in my opinion the best platform for photography of the Eiffel tower especially at night. With the metro station nearby this also gives the best line... More

The most spectacular view in the city is to walk up the steps from Place Trocadero to behold le Tour Eiffel

Great view from the traffic circle and on the river side of the Palais de Chaillot. Lots of street vendors (selfie sticks & light-up Eiffel Tower models) but they were not aggressive or obnoxious.

The best time to visit is just around sunset (check the weather sites) when the Eiffel Towers lights are just about to go on (the light show is every hour but changes in different seasons) It can get very busy so try to get down the very front and get a good pic/view. It depends how much time you want... More

You Can walk by the esplanade on the garden ... Crossing the river and see the Eiffel Tower ... Under ... After if You want You CAN... More

The view from the top of the steps is much better than that from the base a couple of hundred meters away or even in the park. It also provides a good size comparison and puts it all in perspective. Great spot for photos of you and the whole tower. You may as well go to the Trocadero and check... 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.
