Pictures of Eiffel Tower and Paris

I'm sure I read somewhere on this forum that there are other places to get good pictures of Paris other than from the Eiffel Tower. Where would these be? Also, looking for places to capture good pictures of Eiffel Tower. Any suggestions?

For a full on view of the ET it is hard to beat Trocadero, looking down over the gardens and fountains and directly at the tower. Maybe not the most artistic view though.

The roof of Galleries Lafayette I think has a good view. I like the view of French houses on the square from the escalator at the Pompidou centre.

You can get a view of Paris from the steps at Sacre Coeur but it will not include the Eiffel Tower which is hidden behind the butte, but there is a view from the dome of Sacre Coeur.

Top of the Arc de Triomphe and the towers of Notre Dame.

If you are looking for scale in relation to central Paris as a whole, we found the rooftop observatory at Tour Montparnasse to be a good spot as well.

Each of the above suggestions is very good. I'm a fan of the view from the Arc du Triomphe, but it's really a subjective thing. Depends what you're after.
