A historical sight and amazing place to visit. The only disappointment were some of the areas had pieces of plywood. Nonetheless, still a must see in Paris.

There is a fabulous view of the Eiffel Tower from here... Come around dusk to see the Tower lights turn on if you can. The fountains are also spectacular. Nearest Metro is Trocadero on M9/M6. There are lots of restaurants in the area. Parking is very tricky around here so best to use public transport. There are lots of vendors... More

Not only is there a great fountain and park area here but also a perfect location for Eiffel tower photos. I spent some time checking out the massive fountain that seems to go relatively unnoticed and unappreciated due to the proximity to the tower, which is a shame as if it were anywhere else it would be quite an attraction...

Based on previous reviews, we stopped at Trocadero to view the Eiffel Tower at night. It was gorgeous! Definitely worth the stop!

This is the best view in Paris and an amazing place to take pictures! Here you can get your best souvenirs: the most amazing pictures! 10 minutes walk away is the eiffel tower, right in front. You can also sit on the grass in front of it for a mini picnic with a perfect view!

If you have several days, view the tower from as many angles as you can. This one was one of our favourites. This one also allows you to enjoy the fountains and the light show at night. Easy access from the Trocadero Metro station.

The place is fine, beautiful architecture and a great view of the Eiffel Tower. It's worth the visit. It was my second time in Paris and this time the fountains were on for a few minutes and it was even better to take pictures.

The plaza is ok but the view to the Eiffel tower is amaizing. Specially at night with the light on on the tower. Very romantic. I even saw a marriage proposal. Wanted to cry. So happy!

A very good site to take pictures and view the Eiffel Tower, it provides a very beautiful view of the tower at all times. also the park and the fountains around provide a very good ambience for picnic or a quiet walk.
