The Trocadero at night around 10 pm before the light show was a bustling center of energy. There were dancers and musicians and performers. I truly enjoyed an evening stroll through Trocadero down to the Eiffel Tower.

On way to the tower-this is very beautiful place to rest and enjoy the views. But it is not a must :)

This is the best place to go and view the Eiffel Tower. There is a large gathering place up high and you can view all the way to the Eiffel Tower. Make it a point to visit during the day and at night so that you can see the lights. Amazing! There are a lot of eateries nearby to enjoy... More

Without a doubt the place with the best view on the Eiffel Tower. If you can, go in the evening to see the tower twinkle for five minutes at 10 PM and 11 PM. It's a sight you'll never forget. Be aware that you won't be alone there. And just ignore the guys that try to sell you things.

Here is the place everybody goes for the classic Eiffel Tower picture! I remember just stopping there and marveling at the place. Easy access from the subway and by foot if you decide to walk along the Seine.

get off at the trocadero metro stop for the best views of the eiffel tower, and a great walk down to it! we took photos on the balcony, walked down the steps, and sat with our feet in the water fountain. very relaxing. watch out for pick pockets as the area can get overcrowded with tourists.

The water fountain is amazing and the view as well. It is one of the best places for a typical Paris tourist photo session.

There are a couple of museums here but the main reason that you want to be here is only for the direct view of the Eiffel Tower when it lights up at night. So find out the time for nightfall, get yourself a seat or stand if you must, and then enjoy the light show that emanates from the Eiffel... More

It's a great vantage point to see the Eiffel Tower but building works around the area ruined the view a little bit this year. Area around the viewing platform was cordoned off by ugly chipboard barriers and beware of selfie sticks - be prepared to be poked a few times as there are too many people waving these around!

Staying in Trocadero

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.
