This is the place to come after dinner with family ,friends and loved ones. It was a still night, someone was playing guitar and singing, crowds were around but it felt inviting and unthreatening and we looked out to the eiffel tower all lit up the other side of the Seine. Just memorable

This was the first place I took my mother when we got to Paris. Our hotel was just a few blocks away, and despite the jet lag, we went out exploring. Standing on the plaza, looking over the river to the Eiffel Tower just kind of made our trip more "wow, we're in Paris!" The plaza was crowded, even in... More

Amazing view of the Eiffel Tower with statues and fountains leading up to it. Unfortunately some building works with hoardings were ruining the view whilst we were there.

the fountains were interesting but not spectacular. Only one side open to go up and down from the top to the Eiffel Tower. Very busy. Best waffles from the stall near the Seine at the bottom of the steps.

Me and my fiance walked up to the fountains from the Eiffel Tower. I was expecting them to light up and put on a show similar to those in Barcelona but I was disappointed. They give a gorgeous view of the Eiffel tower but in comparison the fountains were underwhelming. There are water cannons but they weren't on. All in... More

Possibly the best view of the Eiffel Tower in all of Paris. Kind of busy and full of tourists but if you go early there aren't as many people.

The Trocadero is so amazing, there is so much going on it makes your head spin. It is really the 'gateway' to the Eiffel Tower from the Rive Gauche. You get the best view of the Eiffel Tower from here. There are a lot of people trying to sell Paris trinkets but not so they are annoying. Sometimes in the... More

I can recommend taking the metro to Trocadero and taking a stroll to the Eiffel Tower. The plaza is a popular busy place where you can get some great photos but there are a lot of street sellers constantly asking you if you want to buy a plastic Eiffel Tower or 5 keyrings for 1 euro! The fountains are stunning... More

Beautiful area with green grass, fountains, and an amazing view of the Eiffel Tower. This is a great area to have a picnic and get some amazing pictures of the Eiffel Tower behind all the fountains. It's a great place to take a break for a little and take in the views.

Great view (if not the best) on the Eiffel tower and surrounding areas. Perfect for pictures, relaxing and a starting point for a pleasant walk towards the Eiffel Tower. I enjoy walking so I would not miss this opportunity.
