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.

Disappointed in how run down it has become with wilting flowers, non operable fountains and construction cranes everywhere. Not the Trocadero of my childhood :-(

A great view of the Eiffel Tower and a playground near by - the carousel is beautiful and the sandwich stand next to it serves nice sandwiches and great ice cream cones that are more affordable than closer to the tower. Great place to take a break with little ones and fun for a picnic.

Nice view of the tower but when we visited there were renovation works or building being done which did detract from the experience somewhat.

... And a picturesque view as well. The fountains were all in full flow, the statues were gleaming from the sunlight, and the Trocadero was a real hive of activity. I've seen this beautiful spot from afar in the past, but being so close this time was a real joy. I took many a picture to capture the moment -... More

When people tell me they are going to Paris I always tell them to go to Trocadero. You get better views of the Eiffel Tower than anywhere else in Paris in my opinion, even better than standing right underneath it. Perfect place to take a few pictures and enjoy the area. Even better at night when you can have a... More

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.
