  • Different would be the scenario if this Park did not exist, has a view of the most beautiful Tower, in addition is so spacious that there are thousands of people on it and however never seen too. There are different activities, from picnic to lovers lying to looking at the sky. It is beautiful to walk or stop and be a couple of hours.

  • The field of Mars is a huge swamp. Come to see the Eiffel Tower, we find ourselves in the mud in the middle of the plate, areas of site and sellers to the sly sometimes aggressive. To avoid absolutely until the end of the work. To make pictures of the Tower, the Trocadero direction. There, beautiful view on the Tower, and clean!

  • You cannot get into your lawn during the winter. I blocked both. Own diseased toes lying on the lawn of the Eiffel Tower to take pictures I wanted to ... Winter is not possible.

  • Just the most magical place on Earth...and one of the most romantic too. The Eiffel Tower has become a symbol of love and strength over the past few decades and my girlfriend (wife now) and I spent hours in the Champ de Mars area on our visit there. So this place get my highest recommendation for everyone, not only those in love...it's just magical!
  • One of the most iconic places in the world. Very nice to just stroll and relax around. There can be but of a crowd during sunny conditions. If you want to go to the top of Eiffel then its better to go early or book a guided tour. You can just keep walking along the river and will not notice how day has ended. There are small snacks shops nearby. But most difficult is to find some washrooms.
  • Who doesn't like to have a picnic right next to the Eiffel Tower!?? It's a beautiful place with tons of space to have a run, picnic, walk your dog...and the list goes on. It does get crazy busy during the summer, and there is often way too much pedestrian traffic. It does need more benches and water fountains. Most of Paris doesn't provide free access to fountain water, so be sure to pack water and snacks. Around this area, shops are super expensive. Beware of those people selling mini Eiffel Towers!!! They are a rip off! Instead, I would recommend putting that money into buying special pastries and breads at local bakeries. Overall, it's a nice place to spend a sunny afternoon. Don't forget the bubbly!
  • This is such a huge space. No matter where you walk around in this area although it is A large area, you are overlooked by the Eiffel Tower. You may hear the sounds of someone playing a romantic song over the violin Or you may smell crepes being made. Along the anterior there are large groups of tourists, and much of this group is trying to get on the elevator to the top of the Eiffel. I decided to just do the exterior area which still had a lot going on and people to see. There are a lot of locals selling little trinkets and jewelry wherever you walk which is common with any city. Although I did not take the elevator ride I do not feel as though I’ve missed anything in particular. There is a great view overlooking By the stairs across from Eiffel Tower and you can see those pictures below
  • A wonderful place in a beautiful city! Very romantic or ideal for any traveller. I deducted a star because whilst I was there, there was a lot of work and development going on which slightly hindered the beauty of it and you there was certain areas that were restricted. However, it's a must see if you're visiting Paris, you won't be disappointed!
