Gives a great view of the Eiffel Tower but area itself is not so nice, been to Paris on numerous occasions but never been here until this visit. Won't be rushing back.

A great place to view the Eiffel Tower from-Many restaurants and beautiful statues-we witnessed a couple who just got married taking pictures-beautiful areas to sit and enjoy the awesome sights.-a must visit before visiting the actual tower itself. Lots of vendors offering souvenirs. very pretty garden and a bridge cross over-delightful walking experience

We had a booking for a basic river cruise on the Seine which began almost at the base of the Eiffel Tower. We were advised to catch the local bus near our hotel and travel to the last stop which was Trocadero. When we arrived we were down behind the Trocadero buildings. We walked towards these buildings and when we... More

This is a brilliant vantage point to visit the tower from. Brilliant atmosphere. Well worth the effort to go to. Take wine and cheese and sit on the steps enjoying the atmosphere. Everyone does! It's just brilliant!

Did a VIP tour which included front seats on Seine river cruise with champagne- amazing. Then we had the great guide give the 6 of us all a wonderful tour of the Tower. We also had exclusive access to the wonderful views from the top floor. It is the way to do it.

Excellent free area to explore on the north side of the city. Many steps to climb however which could be a problem for those unable to handle climbing. The stained glass windows in the church are beautiful.

This is your best spot for your picture in Paris with the Eiffel Tower, however it gets really crowded. So you must go really early if you don't want many people around or in your picture.

This place is located on the north side of Seine River opposite of Eiffel Tower. It is in higher position, so providing terrific view of the Eiffel Tower. Worth to visit come from north side, take picture, then go down to the garden and cross the bridge to Eiffel Tower. So many visitors and lots of vendors offering souvenirs.
