I've been to Paris twice and have seen the Eiffel Tower from different viewing points but this one has got to be the best, especially on the hour after dark to see the light show.

This place is crowded, but that's for a good reason, the view is splendid. I saw a funny street act over here. Be aware of pick pockets.

One of the best places in town to snap a photo of the Tower, plus a chance to look out over the city. Some good museums here, and a great square with cafes and restaurants.

If it wasn't for the big crowds and the many scammers around, Trocadero would be definitely the best spot to take pictures of Eiffel Tower.

If you are looking for a good view of the tower and the city, this is the place to be. We spent almost an hour taking photos only. You will love it.

Great / Best views of the Eiffel Tower. We went after dark to see the lights on the Tower. Excellent. Street vendors in abundance but not too pushy. Spent some time here as daughters had to create and edit their Instagram stories!!!

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
