The best spots to see the Eiffel Tower
When visiting Paris, going to see the Eiffel Tower is usually at the top of the list of things to do. But to be sure to have a perfect perspective on this immense tower, going there is not necessarily the best idea. Here are some ideas of the best spots to see the Eiffel Tower .
Stay at the foot of the Eiffel Tower
Before walking away and taking a step back to have a beautiful view of the Eiffel Tower, it is above all interesting to go near it. At its feet, you will become aware of the immensity of this imposing metal structure. On the square in front of the Eiffel Tower , in the center of the 4 feet, have fun trying to see its summit. This surreal and magical vision will make you feel like a speck of dust compared to the majesty of this iconic monument.
Treat yourself to a picturesque view during a cruise on the Seine
The Bateau-Mouche ride on the Seine is undoubtedly one of the most “cliché” tourist attractions in Paris, but it is also the best solution for enjoying breathtaking views of all the most beautiful monuments of the center of the capital without getting tired. Comfortably installed on a barge or a riverboat, all you have to do is enjoy the scenery, which will gradually reveal the Orsay Museum, the Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral, the Louvre Museum, the Alexandre III Bridge …and the Eiffel Tower!
From the Seine, the unobstructed view of the Iron Lady will never be so beautiful and picturesque.
Enjoy a clear view from Montmartre
To enjoy beautiful things, you sometimes have to know how to move away from them and take a step back. Then head to the Montmartre district , where you can admire a postcard setting with the Eiffel Tower in your sights. To deserve this panorama, you will have to climb to the top of the Butte Montmartre. Along the cobbled streets, you could already see the Iron Lady in the distance. But it is at the very top, on the square in front of the Sacré-Coeur basilica , that the view will be the most beautiful. In the middle of the urban landscape and historical monuments, the Eiffel Tower is there, as prestigious and elegant as ever.
Climb to the top of the Montparnasse tower
To be able to admire the 324 meter high Parisian monument, why not get up high? At the top of the Montparnasse Tower , the only skyscraper in Paris, you will have an incredible and unique view of the Eiffel Tower. From the top of the 56th floor, you will try to get up to this sublime historical monument, and you will be treated to a breathtaking panorama.
On the ground, the Parisian landscape unfolds beneath your feet and leads you up to the tower, all with a completely unobstructed view, considered by many Parisians as the best spot to see the Eiffel Tower .
Go to the Trocadéro esplanade
Equipped with your camera, are you looking for a perfect spot to admire the Eiffel Tower and take pretty photos? Place du Trocadéro is the ideal place for this. From the immense esplanade, the Trocadéro gardens extend as far as the eye can see as far as the Seine, before arriving at the feet of the Iron Lady. Near the Palais de Chaillot, you will then have plenty of time to admire the monument in a completely open setting, and you can even enjoy a moment of relaxation by sitting at the table in the restaurant of the Musée de l’Homme, to a lunch or dinner with the Eiffel Tower in the background .
Climb the Arc de Triomphe
Enjoy a stroll along the Avenue des Champs Élysées to get to the Arc de Triomphe . This monument, honoring French military victories, offers access to its summit. By climbing the 284 steps of the building, you will find yourself facing a breathtaking view of the most beautiful avenue in the world. Basically, as majestic as ever, the work of Gustave Eiffel stands out and puts stars in your eyes.
Take a ride on the Ferris Wheel in the Tuileries gardens
Since the 2000s, the Big Wheel has been regularly installed on the Place de la Concorde. In recent years, it has migrated to the Tuileries garden, particularly during the Christmas market. If you have the chance to see it during your stay in Paris, take the opportunity to discover a 360° panorama of the capital . At night, the experience is even more magical, and allows you to see the City of Lights from a new, more intimate and wonderful angle. In the distance, the sparkling Eiffel Tower will fulfill all your desires with magic.
Cross the Bir Hakeim bridge
Favorite spot for photographers and directors, the Bir Hakeim bridge is another magical place to admire the Eiffel Tower. Above the Seine, the sublime architecture of the bridge offers an incredible setting for observing the beauty of the Iron Lady and taking pretty photos. We then forget about the traffic, and enjoy an exceptional moment in the heart of Paris.
