The best place to click the Eiffel Tower

Most of the pix that we see with the Eiffel Tower in the background, are clicked from the Trocadero. Expect huge crowds and a carnival atmosphere, and be safe.

This was very busy on the warm Saturday we visited. Probably one of the most busy and touristy areas, so be mindful of your surroundings and watch for pick-pocketing. Great view of tower and nice lawns.

This is where you go to see the best-known site in the entire world - and this is the best view of it. Enough said.

We spend some time exploring the area after going to the aquarium, luckily it was a nice day and a lot of people were just relaxing, enjoying clear views of Eiffel tower; if one fancies a beer or has finished their bottle of water, there are people selling bottled Heineken and 500ml water bottles. We sat near the large water... More

Right across the Seine from the Eiffel Tower. Right on the subway line. Walk up the stairs, make a turn and there you are. You will however be accompanied by 100 buses of tourists.

This is the best place to get a view of the Eiffel Tower, especially at night. We sat on the grass, it wasn't too crowded, lots of space around us and at 10pm the light show on the tower started and there were lots of 'ooohs and 'ahhhhs' it was beautiful :-)

This is the best spot to view the Eiffel Tower. You come out of the subway, turn the corner, and there it is! The place is majestic, large buildings, huge fountain spraying jets of water. It's a nice place to see.

A nice place to take pictures with the Eiffel Tower in the back ground. But really didn't have many "Garden" features. The water fountain was ok, but really not that impressive.

Want to get a total view of the tower then this is the spot. Especially at night when the tower is lit up. Gets a little crowded but it is worth the trek and the view. As the lights go on it is fascinating to hear the different WOWs in different languages but the meaning is the same.

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the neighbourhood 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 splendour, 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 significance. With a rich legacy from 19th century politics, art, and architecture, you can’t help but be reminded of the belle époque, the Universal Exhibitions and the nobility that have frequented and shaped these streets.
