Trocadero has a great sight of the amazing Paris. Is next to the Eiffel Tower, is a must, specially at night.

This is definitely the best viewing point for Eiffel Tower. A must go. Try to go at 9pm so that you can see the sun set and light show at 10pm as well

Enjoy on a sunny day before or after visiting the Eiffel Tower. There is food for purchase, ice cream, crepes and soft drinks. Just sit and watch. Enjoy!

Trocadero has spectacular fountain and a few high levels to see Eiffel Tower. It is also close to a metro station. I like pictures with fountain and Eiffel Tower.

The Trocadero is a large square with two semicircular buildings and gardens. There is a metro stop very close to it so it can easily be reached. Once at the upper level of the square you get a magnificent view of the Eiffel Tower. If you want a "selfie" with the tower, or one of you "holding it in your... More

This is the best view and the best spot to take photos of the Eiffel Tower in all of Paris. Once you get here, it is just a few blocks to walk to the Tower and it is all downhill!

A very short walk from our Hotel to some right on the Trocadero. It is magnificent with the fountain and was lucky enough to see the canons as they shot off.

Across the Seine is situated Trocadero, the site of the former Palais du Trocadero. Nowadays here is located the New Palais de Chaillot. In fact,... More

Had taken a friend to see Eiffel the other day. She did not want to see it, stating iron building, what's there to see. Loving Paris as much as I do, I had to change the view. So got to Trocadero square, sat in a cafe with a view of the Eiffel through the trees, at about 7 pm, and... More
