Looking for the perfect spot to take the perfect postcard picture of the Eiffel Tower? Look no further, hands down best spot to view the Eiffel Tower in all its glory. A visit at night is a must and don't forget to visit the crepe van around the corner for a delicious Nutella delight!!!

Any visit to Paris is not complete without going to the Trocadero Metro Station, getting out and going on the Palais de Chaillot for a view of the Eiffel Tower. For a special treat, do it at night!

The Trocadero area is a nice hilly area from where you can get awesome views of Paris especially the Eiffel Tower. Pretty gardens with nice water features/ fountains. Worth a visit!

The only reason to come here is to get a view of the Eiffel Tower and the fountains. Other than that, there is not much here to see, a few statues and the fountain. In the future, I would only stop here if I were coming or going from the immediate area. I would not add this to an itinerary.

If Austrians produce good music, italians olives.... i think the french are good with gardens. It amazing, those who usually go bleah when they see gardens (me) will actually pause and look at how this beautiful garden compliments the eiffel and the rest of the city. I took my wedding pictures there and the results were... no words. Just go.... More

The views of the Eiffel tower from the Trocadero are amazing. You will get your best photos from here for sure. There are also little cafe's with good views (and food) wonderful to people watch from. It's fun to see people get their first good look at the tower from this perspective - so amazing. DO NOT miss a stop... More

This is a beautiful park in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower. The fountains are magnificent. The problem is all the hawkers, street performers and bums.

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
