Leaving the Eiffel Tower, I crossed the renown bridge Pont de Iena, the name of which is given after the battle of Iena in the Napoleon's Wars in 1806, in the region of today Germany. 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

Worth the walk for the view of the Eiffel Tower. Early evening sun made for beautiful photos from that angle. The street hawkers here however definitely do not add to the charm of the experience, and from the Trocadero through the Champ de Mars make for a kind of seedy atmosphere. There are places for crepes and ice cream at... More

After being harassed by scammers in Parc du Champs de Mars we made our way north of the Eiffel Tower to the cool sprinkle from the Trocadero Fountain on the 37 degree day we scored in September. This spot is amazing as when you climb the steps to the highest courtyard you can get some amazing views of the Eiffel... More

This was the best place to see the Eiffel Tower. One of my favorit memories of the trip was watching another family with all of their various poses. There was a bride and groom taking pictures. It just had a great feel to it. This is worth your time.

A beatiful place in front of the Eiffel tower where you can have a privileged view over the tower and over Paris.

The view from Trocadero all around is ultra-impressive. The gardens complex starts on the road on the gardens' side of the River Seine, and works back to a pair of buildings and a plaza. There is a reflective pool, water jets, manicured hedges and architecture. The best time to go is either when the Eiffel Tower is lit up, or... More

Even close you can find the Palais de Chaillot, which several museums, gardens, the Trocadero square and a large underground... More
