The 7 Best Places in Paris to View The Eiffel Tower

When people think of Paris, they think of the Eiffel Tower. For some reason, this metal structure has become a symbol of romance- ironically it was to be torn down for being an “eyesore” back in the day.

But what would Paris be without it’s Eiffel Tower? It is iconic.

Of course, being a travel blogger in Paris for the first time, I wanted to capture different angles of this gorgeous monument.

Here are seven of the best places to view and photograph the Eiffel Tower.

1. Trocadero

The Trocadero is probably the most well known location for getting that picture-perfect snap of the tower. Directly across the Seine from the tower, it offers a perfect view.

2. 22 Rue de Universite

This street is right next to the Eiffel Tower and gives a dreamy larger-than-life version of the monument.

3. Sacre Coeur

This is personally my favorite view of Paris as a whole. With 360 degree views of the city, dreamy columns, and wide passageways, the Sacre Coeur is perfect for viewing Paris.

4. Arc D’Triomphe

The Arc is relatively close to the tower, which is good when it comes to viewing it. But if you’re wanting to be in the picture, just know there are huge spikes that will be in your photo. You can see them here (what you can’t see is that I’m on my tip-toes so that the spikes don’t take over the whole photo!).

5. Notre Dame

While there are great views of the city, know that this mesh cage will be in every single photo!

6. Pont Alexandre III

This bridge is perfect for pictures along the Seine with Eiffel Tower Views. The architecture of the bridge is also stunning and adds to any photo you’re taking!

7. Printemps Haussman

This is actually a huge department store. On the top floor you’ll find the food court area, which has an outdoor balcony with the views seen here.

8. The Eiffel Tower

And of course, don’t forget to get up close and personal with the tower itself!

Have fun!
