One of the most beautiful places to view the Eiffel Tower and probably the most famous one is Trocadéro. If you want to go here to see the Eiffel Tower, I would highly recommend to be there at sunrise. The sunrises here are really magical. It can get very busy during the day. However, if you come early there aren’t many people and that makes the whole experience even more magical! Moreover, be prepared to see some real life love stories when you’re here! It’s one of the most popular places for marriage proposals and there are many women in their wedding dresses!
Trocadéro is a beautiful place, because here you get a wide overview of the Eiffel Tower. Furthermore, because it’s not very close to the Eiffel Tower, you don’t have to look up if you want to see the whole Eiffel Tower. Also, it’s very easy to reach Trocadéro, since you can just go to the metro station that’s called Trocadéro.
These steps are also part of Trocadéro. It’s another great place to see the Eiffel Tower from and you can also take beautiful photos here. Furthermore, it is a lovely place to sit down as well!
This is another place at Trocadéro. If you walk down the stairs, you will get here.
