Tourists come here to take picture of Trocadero and Tour Eiffel. This is on high ground and you can take beautiful photos of Tour Eiffel. It is easy to take a taxi to come to Trocadero, but you can also take Metro or bus to this Trocadero Station.

Simply the best view of the Eiffel Tower! After walking around, or up! the tower cross the river and take in the awesome panorama from the top of the steps at the Trocadero. Just about sunset the tower is illuminated and then on the hour the lights sparkle making a stunning sight. Of course there is much more to the... More

If you do not plan to visit the Tour Eiffel, go to Trocadero and take few minutes to admire this tower from far. Take pictures and after a while you will see you will change your mind and will start going down the stairs direction... Tour Eiffel.

The Trocadero is the best place to see the Eiffel Tower. We went at night and it wasn't crowded. The view when the Eiffel Tower's sparkle lights came on was a must see!

This area is the best to watch the Eiffel Tower light show at night. Just watch for deception crimes up here, otherwise a great space. Also good during the day for Eiffel Tower photos....

I guess one of the best places to make great pictures of the Eiffel tower. Go there for morning and night views. When you’re lucky the sun is perfect in the morning and you can make nice picture with the sun looming half behind the left building. Metro station is just a few meters away, so easily accessible. Yeah, and... More

Walk over for a great picture of the Eiffel Tower, but be prepared for crowds, hawkers and protests. Get your selfie and move on. Or be original and find your shot of the Tower from a different angle, ie from Bir Haikem.

Watching the tour Eiffel at TV made it seem like any other monument , seeing it in reality with all the lights from different angles made it awesome , you can t visit Paris without going there.

The neighborhood of Trocadero is across the Seine from the Eiffel Tower & that means the views are wonderful of the river with the Tower in the background. Plenty of government buildings, palaces, gardens. Beautiful area.
