Best Place to View Eiffel Tower at Night

We usually go to the Trocadero to watch the lights on the tower, but will be there right before Bastille Day and the area may be blocked off. What are some other good vantage points? We will be staying on the Left Bank not far from Montparnasse.

The site will be blocked off on the 14th but not on the 13th. Any of the nearby bridges also offers an excellent view. It's not as though it's a difficult thing to see.

Yes of course, but it is so small from there.

Those photos are amazing K2!!!

Off topic: Is the Louvre really THAT massive? It must take days and days and days to go through.

Yes, the Louvre is massive. I suggest you do a bit of homework on what you just have to see. I have favourites that I need to catch up with, and usually add a room or two so that I see something new. Last time I visited the Napoleon Rooms and can't believe I hadn't caught up with them before

k2, those are great photos! You must have a powerful zoom on that camera of yours! I think now I'll add the Montparnasse tower to my list of things to do. I enjoy seeing a city from above, at all different heights.
