Great place to see the Eiffel Tower light show at night, though you might have to side step the street traders. Get there early for the best spot.

Bonjour from one of my favourite cities where the 19th-century cityscape is crisscrossed by wide boulevards and the River Seine. This time I spent a lot of the day twirling around Place de Trocadéro. The iconic spot is truly one of the best locations for...More

I was there at night with a colleague for a city walk and I was impressed by the view of the tower and the lights. People all around and some of them were dancing Tango. It's worth a visit.

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

It’s busy, lots of tourists, vendors selling flowers/Trinkets/champagne. Pretty memorable setting for popping the question. Just be aware of your surroundings during the emotional moment. Congratulations

Hi, It's an open space from where you can look back on the Eiffel Tower and it gives you a perfect view. Overall, I believe the neighborhood is called Trocadero, but when people say it, they really just mean the area where... More

Traveling to Paris question (11 Replies)
Hi all..we are planning to take a half day trip into Paris from Bussy-Saint-Geroge during our next DLP trip. We are 2 adults and a 3 year old and plan to mainly see Eiffel Tower due to our time constraints (we have also booked a boat tour). I have done some research and it seems we have to get on RER A at Bussy-Saint and then change to Metro 6 at Charles de Gaulle Étoile and get off at Trocadero for Eiffel tower. Does this sound right? Is it easy to change between RER A and Metro? I’m so...More

Also just come across the Île-de-France (IDF) point-to-point tickets. Which seems to be cheaper if we plan on going from Bussy-Saint-George to Trocadero and back...based on the below I'm assuming it means 6.15 euros for a return? Sorry my french isn't good. Billet à l’unité: Plein tarif: 6,15€ Demi tarif: 3,05€ anyone have any experience on these ticket options?

There is a small Salvador Dali museum up by Place Terte (that's where the artists are) just around the corner from the church. Museum is just around the corner from Place Tertre, you will see signs.

Around €50 - €55 at a guess. On Sundays taxis charge a higher rate, but there is also less traffic.
