The Trocadero offers one of the best photo ops for you with the Eiffel Tower in the back ground. You'll no doubt see many people taking selfies from here as well as couples having engagement or wedding photos here. Located directly across the Seine from the Eiffel Tower.

Unfortunately, when we went there most of the fountain area was closed off. That said, we enjoyed the view from the terrasse - which was amazing.

Just get the subway to arrive at the greatest view of the tower. Unfortunately in September 2016 there were a lot of blockings and street sellers. As usual beware of the pickpockets and enjoy the view! If possible go back walking and pass on the Bir Hakeim Brigde.

Worth visiting during the daytime as well as at night, as the Eiffel tower sparkles for 5 minutes every hour on the hour.
