Hi, we are arriving in Paris tomorrow, and originally we planned to watch fireworks from Champ de Mars, and .... turned out that it would be a very popular thing to do, and Champ de Mars would be super-crowded.
So we're thinking of alternatives. We read a couple of blogs and do some searches on Google Maps.
Can we watch from Brateuil square - the traffic circle (Place de Breteuil), seems to be close to Duroc metro station, and there is a road that seems to have a straight shot at Eiffel tower. However, when I looked up Street View in Google Maps, the view is obscured by some trees. What are the opinions of the Paris experts here on the board? Is this a good option?
What about near Place de Catalogne, near intersection of Boulevard Vaugirard and Boulevard Pasteur?
