Trocadero, Paris

4.5
Keep your camera handy in Trocadero as you walk along the public garden, toward the water features, and through the wide esplanade for picturesque views of the Eiffel Tower and beyond. This well-maintained cultural area features a great square, several museums, gardens, a theater, and the Palais de Chaillot, which was built in a Neoclassical style for the 1937 Exposition Internationale.

    in this area concentrates a slaughter of people, some Queuing to get into the area of the Eiffel Tower (checking bags), in addition to classic tails to climb the Tower (book online tickets).

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
