It's totally THE place for a breathtaking view of Eiffel Tower!
Trocadero is a huge open plaza/square across the river Seine from where you have breathtaking view of Eiffel Tower at any hour of the day, and it's free!
It's great for people watching, eating crepes filled with Nutella, and it's the best spot to take pictures of the tower!
You can easily reach Trocadero by metro, enjoy the plaza and then you'll be at a 10 minutes walk away of the eiffel tower, right in front of you.

Beautiful view to the Eiffel tower! Pompious buildings all around, go there! There are though a lot of tourists around (surprise!) so be there early or late in the day

This is the best location for taking photo for Eiffel Tower. Yes, there are a few steps to take. However it is worth it.

I strongly recommend that if this is your first time to Paris, that the first night you get there, you wait until night time, take the Metro to Trocadero Square, walk up the steps, turn left and just let the moment sink in. It is the most amazing view of teh Eiffel Tower and the night time light show is beautiful from this location. Be there 10 minutes before the hour. On the hour there is a 5 minute light display. Be sure to walk down the steps to the right towards the Eiffel Tower to get some better views and good pictures on the steps. You will get your best Eiffel Tower Shot from here at night.

Great place to hang out and people watch and take in the Eiffel Tower and take a walk down to the Seine. Close to galleries.
