This is a great place to stop if you do not have a lot of time to walk from Bir hakim Metro Stop to la Tour. You can get great pics from across the Seine to the Eiffel tower

We walked from L'Arc de Triumph to Trocadero and turned the corner and wow. The views across to the spectacular Eiffel Tower were great from the steps of the Palais de Chaillot

Go all the way to the summit - it is worth it. Incredible views all the way around. It was cold and windy, but we didn't care. a bucket list experience for me. The grounds were under repair or we would have had a picnic and enjoyed it more. It lights up at night and and 7:00 - 7:05 pm... More

We visited the tour in the daylight and then ventured to the Trocadero afterwards and had a leisurely meal (lots of great restaurants in this area. We waited then for the tour to light up and then every hour, the tour twinkles for 5 minutes- amazing! Just beware of vendors and pick pockets!

Once an almost traveler's secret, this spot is now solidly on the tourist track. It's a beautiful plaza between a museum and library which overlooks the Eiffel Tower providing the perfect vantage point and photo opportunities. Arrive early in the morning before the hordes of tourists for what can feel like a private photo shoot with the tower, catch sunrise... More

The Trocadero is the go to spot for the fun Eiffel Tower pictures and also to get a good view of the many tourist spots of Paris. Around the Trocadero has many cafe's and restaurants near by. Watch out for the 'lucky lucky' men selling various things and the beggars

I always like to take people visiting for their first time to the Eiffel tower via the Troc. It provides a perfect frame and avenue to approach the tower and also shows the scale and planning of Paris public areas. In Dec the left hand steps down were closed for works.
