Palais De Chaillot, Paris Reviews
Great place to view the Eiffel tower with bus stops and metro access near by. There are street peddlers that will try very aggressively to sell you trinkets but we were ok just avoiding eye contact, saying no multiple times and not engaging them. Nice fountains and park as well.
After Arc De Triomphe this is the best place to visit. It's free. You can lay on the grass have a sandwich and drink. But please clear up after you are done. But the views of Eifel Tower are beautiful. The water cannons are also something you have to see. Every so often the blast water in high speed and quite a distance.
It is one of the best places for taking pictures at Eiffel tower. The view is beautiful from this place. I just love it 😊
It's the best way to start here when you come for the Eiffel tower. Very relax with wide open space to take as many pictures as you want with the Eiffel in the background.
Beautiful for pictures and hanging out. The Wilson cafe nearby was great for a quick meal- very friendly wait staff.
