The Eiffel Tower

There are two train stations near the Eiffel Tower – the Champ de Mars-Tour Eiffel via the RER C and the Trocadero (from which this photo has been taken from) via Metro Line 9. The former is still a bit of walk to the Eiffel Tower. The Trocadero is actually nearer and I’d prefer it when going there in the evening. During daytime, I suggest taking the Champ de Mars route. If you follow this way, there’s a garden you’d easily spot near the tower which is usually not crowded with tourists. It’s one of the best spots for taking photos with the iconic tower.

This garden by the Eiffel Tower is closed during the evening. It’s the perfect spot for taking photos during the day because it isn’t usually crowded. There are also benches where you can sit, read a book, daydream, or just stare at the tower while munching on some croissants or crepes. Beware though of people who would usually approach you, papers on hand, asking “Speak English?” Ignore them or just shake your head or say “no” in the best French accent you can muster. They’re scammers who’d force you into signing some petitions and eventually take money from you.
