“Trocadero, Paris”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Trocadero is a open plaza across the river Seine from where you have breathtaking view of Eiffel Tower at any hour of the day. But visit to this place at night is something different as you can have spectacular view of illuminated Eiffel tower which one should not miss at any cost. To make it even more special, at 10 p.m. all lights on tower twinkles for 5 minutes which is really one should not miss at any cost.

“Great view of the Tour Eiffel! Beautiful fountains!”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

The top of the Trocadero offers a great view of the Tour Eiffel without the huge crowds that are at the foot of the tower. The Trocadero is across the Seine River from the Tour Eiffel. The view and pictures of the Tour Eiffel are spectacular. Can arrive by Metro and is one of the Open Tours bus stop. Can even take a nice picture of the tower from the Open Tour Bus.
At the top of the Trocadero there is the building Palais de Challot that houses the Naval/Maritime Museum, Architecture museum and Musee de L'Homme. The first two museums entrance fees are included in the Paris Museum Pass.
Going down the stairs, we enjoyed the fountains and the Garden of Trocadero. It was refreshing and relaxing sitting by the fountains enjoying the view of the Tour Eiffel right across the river.
Can cross the bridge and go to the Tower of Eiffel.

“Best spot to really appreciate the Eiffel Tower”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

We headed to Trocadero by metro and when we came out of the station the Eiffel Tower is literally a couple of meters away round the corner and when you see it it is truly breath taking! Its the best spot for taking photos of the attraction and then you can walk down to the tower from this spot too. Its a must-go so don't miss out!

“Best place to see the Eiffel Tower light shows”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Get off at Trocadero Metro station and within a few minutes you're across the bridge from the Eiffel Tower with an amazing view! We grabbed a bottle of champagne, some glasses and a large towel from our hotel and sat on the grass watching the light shows.
It stays light out pretty late now, so light shows are for 5 mins on the hour at 10:00pm, 11:00pm, 12:00am and 1:00am. Tower shuts off at 1:05am. The last one was a different color scheme, bluish lights on a dark background. We were glad we stayed to see it.
