The view at night time when the Eiffel Tower is lit up is absolutely amazing - a must do. Also the chocolate creeps we had there were a highlight!

and a view of the Eiffel Tower across the river. What more could you want in Paris. To the left of this picture there is a little garden where you can walk up to the street Trocadero and approach it from the back to see the famous view of La Tour Eiffel. Good culture!

If you want to get the best vantage point, which provides an elevated view of the Eiffel tower, fountains and garden, this is the best I've found. Not great light during the day, but as you can see from the photo, it's an incredible view from evening. You can take the metro to Trocadero, which is also a short walk to the Eiffel tower.

Take the metro to Trocadero, walk up the stairs, walk 15 steps, turn left and wow.....what a sight. Be careful of pick pockets but it's worth the trip.

The best photo-op of the Eiffel Tower is from the steps of the Trocadero. While it’s always crowded here, you can easily get a shot of yourself/travelling companions with no one else in your picture frame—just you and the Eiffel Tower—because of the wide layout of the steps and angles towards the tower. Just beware of the many scammers, beggars, pick-pockets in the area who tend to strike when we are giddy and distracted by the Eiffel Tower.

The actual Trocadero complex houses the Naval Museum, Natural History of Humans Museum, The Museum of Architecture, Museum of French Monuments, and the Theatre National de Chaillot.

TIP: At the very top platform of the Trocadero complex, you will find yourself in a traffic circle. Take one of the streets to your right, Kleber, for a direct path to the Arc de Triomphe (a little less than a mile walk).
