This area is the best spot for anyone to get the best view of the majestic Eiffel Tower. The elevation of the spot allows for the best photography of the tower. The numerous fountains between the Trocadero and the tower enhance the photography. The view of the tower at night when the glittery lights come on are breath taking. It's... More

You cannot fail to be impressed by the view that you have from The Trocadero looking straight on to the Eiffel Tower. Bring your camera and your selfie-stick with you as this is one place as you'll want to take lots of pictures.

This is where you will take the best and most beautiful pictures of the Eiffel Tower. It is directly across the river from it, and elevated for a great view. This is also a popular place for professional or wedding photos because of the fantastic view! You can reach it by metro at the stop "Trocadero," or if you are... More

We caught the metro/subway to Tracadero Station; coming out of the station and walking around the corner to stand between the 2 wings of the Tracadero, and have the Eiffel Tower standing there before you, was amazing. Then you have to remind yourself to step back and admire the design and layout of the Trocadero; from the 2 wings that... More

Most probably the best place to make some wonderful photos of the Eifffel tower. On the Trocadero there are a lot of restaurants, some are really good. There are some museums too, which are worth to visit.

Its all about the view here; day or night it is spectacular. The only thing detracting from the experience is the ever present peddlers trying to get you to buy cheap trinkets but I suppose that is the case at all tourist sites.

Great view of the Eiffle Tower, and a refreshing spray on a hot day from the fountains, but that's about all. A couple of food vendors at the top and plenty of restaurants etc across the street.

Just as the title says. We visited this both during the daytime and nightime. We bent back late in the evening on our last night to get some photos of the eiffel tower lit up and got more than we bargained for. While we got some beautiful photos I also got my wallet pinched while walking up the stairs to... More

Many people choose to look at the tower from the Champs de Mars, but here you have a nice pool and garden as well.

Neighborhood Profile
Trocadero
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.
