“Great views”
Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

In february, we got sunny weather. It was cold, yes, but the sights make you forget that! Lots of small places to get crepes or something to drink, prices basically same as all other street places. Lots of street sellers as well, they can be annoying because there are ao many! But as soon as the police passes by, they run away!
Great place to catch your breath before going up the tower!

Thank Ana B

“Beyond the tower”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

For those of you who may have read "In search of lost time" from Marcel Proust, l'esplanade du Trocadéro can make a difference in your trip to Paris. The place is mentioned so many times across the tomes of the book, that I just had to be there.

Now, on a more practical view, Trocadéro provides you with the best view of the Eiffel Tower (it's much nicer than Champ de Mars down there). Unfortunately my girlfriend and I had walked a long way that day and could barely stand so we didn't check out the Christmas Market going on there.

“Best view of the Eiffel Tower!”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

Climb the steps of the Trocadero for the best view of the Eiffel Tower! Lots of tourists there that can help you take couples photos together.

The tower lights up for 5 minutes on the hour in the evening and it is a gorgeous sight not to be missed! You can also grab a hot crepe from the base of the Trocadero.

“Happy New Year”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

We were lucky enough to be in Paris for the New Year. The plan was to join the crowds at the champs elysee but we opted for the Trocadero instead. Great view of the Eiffel Tower and great atmosphere. Excellent day or night and would recommend to all.

Be sure to check out this scene at night. The winter markets are very cute and not too pricey. The tower lights up at every hour which is gorgeous. Ice skating and music is also offered! Don't leave the scene without a macaroon.
