Amazing views of the Eiffel Tour! Go later in the afternoon so the sun isn’t right overhead. The view is spectacular and then it’s a short walk across the bridge to get to the tower itself.

What a perfect combination here at the Palais. You can visit the impressive museums and when you’re finished, you can take awesome shots up here from a great vantage point of the Eiffel. Don’t miss this.

Some of the best views of the Eiffel Tower from this remnant of one of Paris' grand world expos. The Palais houses a couple of very good museums (especially the architecture museum), a theater and a high-end restaurant.

The Palais de Challiot is an incredible building in it's own right with beautiful architecture and gardens but the view from the top of the Palais of the Eiffel Tower is in my opinion the best in the city.

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
