Eiffel Tower – The most instagrammable spots in Paris

The Eiffel Tower is the symbol of the Parisienne city. There are a lot of perfect places where to take pictures of the tower and for us, the best one is from the Trocadero.
The Trocadero is located just 5 minutes away from the Eiffel Tower, going through the Trocadero’s gardens and reaching the best point of view for your Instagrammable Paris. 

A charming itinerary inside the best photo spots of Paris

If the Eiffel Tower is the first thing you want to see in Paris, you can take the tube and reach Trocadero Station, where you have line 6 and 9. This is one of the best photography locations in Paris and is the best point where you can let your imagination work.
We suggest to go there in early morning, so you don’t have many people around and you can actually take nice pictures, but it is even true that by night Paris is magic and the Eiffel tower is illuminated.

Reserve here your ticket for the access to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower.

Travel Tips: While we were spending our time taking photos of Paris, we weren’t feeling really safe around the Trocadero.
If you are traveling solo, the best option would be going close to other tourists and “pretend” to be with them, or if you are with your partner or friends try to stay away from the vendors and keep always your bags and especially cameras with you and the valuable safe.
