The view here is amazing. I arrived at sunset as the tower started being lit. There was a fashion show below and the was a crane in the way. The crane was moved purely for the benefit of the tourists (at least I think). Just be careful it can get really cold in autumn.
View point for Eiffel tower. Get down the bus over here and walk along the river to reach The wonder of the world...
This is the Classic must see place to get great shots of the Eiffel Tower, but don’t overlook the less crowded locations.
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.
The area around the Eiffel tower is a sad sight. Muddy, crowded and full of jihad fences to keep maniacs away. Palais de Chaillot is also pretty crowded, but it's probably the best place to see and take photos of the Eiffel tower. There are water cannons and small fountains in the centre surrounded by some benches.
