This is a high point with an open space in between two monumental buildings. It is looking down on a garden slope, with a stunning view of the Tour Eiffel. Kids love to skate board there ... which they probably should not do.

A beautiful place to view Paris. Nice open spot. Many people were there, but you still feel you have enough space to have an uninterrupted view of Eiffel and city. Literally every 100-steps presented with an opportunity for a great picture. Not too far from...More

Definitely a must visit to have the best views of the tower. We visited in the morning and again in the evening to have a lit up view. Many people selling souveniers there, so one needs to be careful.

This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive
Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National
museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,
florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury
and splendour, all with a view over Paris and its most
famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical

It’s busy, lots of tourists, vendors selling flowers/Trinkets/champagne. Pretty memorable setting for popping the question. Just be aware of your surroundings during the emotional moment. Congratulations
