Eiffel Tower

Day 13 – Trocadero, Paris, France

April 2015

Highlight of Paris is our visit to Eiffel Tower. We have chosen to alight from the metro via Trocadero station as it is far enough to be able to take a picture of Eiffel Tower in a horizontal frame and it’s on an elevated area. If you got-off from Bir-Hakeim, you wouldn’t be able to take a full frame picture of Eiffel Tower due to obstruction by trees and buildings.

The Trocadero, site of the Palais de Chaillot, is an area of Paris, across from the river Seine. The hill of the Trocadero is the hill of Chaillot, a former village. It is from here, you’ll get a good shot of the Eiffel Tower.

From the esplanade of Trocadero, you’ll find Trocadero garden with its gigantic fountains as you walk across towards Eiffel Tower. Trocadero garden is not a flower garden but you’ll find small patches of flowers planted around the garden.

The spray of the fountain creates a rainbow. Beware of the wind or breeze as it could blow the spray towards you.
