The Eiffel Tower is a place where all tourists or French people come to visit in Paris at least once. Since it is a place that symbolizes Paris, you must have seen many cool pictures of the Eiffel Tower through social medias. And then, everyone visits the Eiffel Tower with expectation to get a nice picture. However, if we go to the Eiffel Tower without any research, we will only see the huge Eiffel Tower up close and will never be possible to take the pictures we have seen. From now on, we will introduce the best photo spot for taking the best picture of the Eiffel Tower.
This place, which is already a famous place by the movie, is also a photo spot where you can see the Eiffel Tower at a glance when you turn your head right away. You can take a picture of the Eiffel Tower with the Bir-Hakeim, or just the Eiffel Tower across the bridge. Especially since there aren't that many people in the area, if you capture the moment of walking under the Bir-Hakeim with the Eiffel Tower, it would be a perfect photo.
Located just in front of the Eiffel Tower, it takes about 10 minutes to walk from the Bir-Hakeim. Because it is the place where we can see the Eiffel Tower the closest, many people visit and you should be careful of pickpockets. However, it also has the biggest advantage of being able to take a clear, close-up shot of the Eiffel Tower. There are crosswalks at the end of the bridge, so you can stand in the middle of it and take a picture of the Eiffel Tower in front of them.
If you follow the bridge, you will find a merry-go-round under the Eiffel Tower. Take a picture of the Eiffel Tower with a colorful merry-go-round, and you'll be able to get a nice picture of another angle.
Passing under the Eiffel Tower from Pont d'iéna, you will see a wide Champ de Mars. This is also a place where you can see the Eiffel Tower up close, and you can take a photo of the Eiffel Tower with a green background like a wide lawn and trees. If the weather is nice, you can enjoy a picnic on the grass and take pictures of the Eiffel Tower together.
Debilly Footbridge, a pedestrian-only bridge, is also a beautiful photo spot of the Eiffel Tower. There are couples' locks hung on the bridge guardrail, so you can add a small fun element of the picture. The big advantage is that it is not well known to people and also it is easy to take pictures because there are no cars. The harmony of the three elements, the Eiffel Tower, the Seine River and the bridge, will make it easy for anyone to take a nice picture.
It is another bridge that there is the Invalides on the front and the Eiffel Tower on the side, so you can see everything at once. Compared to other places, you can only see the end of the Eiffel Tower, but you can try a different angle. It is also a place where photographers sometimes take pictures of the Eiffel Tower on the bridge.
Trocadéro is on a hill, so it feels like facing the Eiffel Tower on the same line. Therefore, you can take a picture of the Eiffel Tower looking straight ahead. If you go down the stairs, you'll see gardens. If you sit on the stairs or take the Eiffel Tower with the square, you'll probably be able to get your favorite photo.
It is a hidden photo spot where people can see the Eiffel Tower, which is not well known to people. Unlike other places, it is a place where you can see the Eiffel Tower through the trees and buildings. The colors of the buildings next to each other and the Eiffel Tower go well together, so you can take a cute picture that you want to set as the background of your phone.
Another hidden photo spot of the Eiffel Tower. Although it is a small street, you can see the Eiffel Tower up close and have buildings and trees, so you can take pictures in a different angle than the open view. Also, you can see the Eiffel Tower even if you take the main road away from Avenue de Buenos Aires.
If you visit after sunset, you can take more beautiful picture of the Eiffel Tower in the night. After sunset, you can see the shiny Eiffel Tower every hour for five minutes, and also at 1 a.m., you can see the white Eiffel tower with the yellow lights off and only the white lights turned on, so we recommend you visit at the time you want.
On July 14 every year, a spectacular fireworks display is held at the Eiffel Tower. Since it is a popular event for not only locals in France but also foreigners, if you want to take a picture of the ecstatic and grand fireworks that last about half an hour, you'd better arrive four to five hours before the fireworks start and find a good spot in advance.
