Trocadéro Tours

63 Reviews
Across the river from the Eiffel Tower, the grand Trocadéro is one of Paris’ most visited areas—an expanse of manicured gardens and monumental walkways set around the Place du Trocadéro and crowned by the Palais de Chaillot. It offers one of the best views of the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

The Basics
You can stroll through the Trocadéro Gardens on a Paris walking tour, explore independently as part of a hop-on hop-off bus tour, or pass the waterfront gardens on a Seine River cruise. Many Paris city tours include a photo stop at the square, which offers excellent views of the Eiffel Tower and the Champ de Mars; but for panoramic views of the Trocadéro itself, combine your tour with a skip-the-line Eiffel Tower ticket and admire the magnificent gardens from above. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Free Wi-Fi hotspots are available around the Trocadéro.
  • The Trocadéro Gardens are open 24-7 and there is no admission fee.
  • The Trocadéro and its museums are mostly wheelchair accessible.

How to Get There
The Trocadéro is located in Paris’ 16th arrondissement, on the right bank of the River Seine. Situated directly opposite the Eiffel Tower, it’s a short walk from the Champ de Mars on the left bank over the Pont d’Iéna to the Trocadéro Gardens. The closest metro station is Trocadéro on Lines 6 and 9.

When to Get There
The Trocadéro is one of the busiest locations in Paris—an early morning or late-night stop is the only chance you’ll have to enjoy a crowd-free visit, especially in peak season. While splashing around in the fountains is a popular way to cool off in summer, visiting in the evening means you can enjoy city’s lights. Another atmospheric time to visit is during the holidays, when the Place du Trocadéro hosts a Christmas market and open-air ice rink. 

Museums of the Trocadéro
The magnificent Palais de Chaillot is home to the Théâtre National de Chaillot, as well as the Musée de l'Homme anthropology museum and the Musée National de la Marine maritime museum. Other museums located within a short stroll of the Trocadéro include the Musée National des Arts Asiatiques–Guimet, which displays an exquisite collection of Asian art; its Galeries du Panthéon Bouddhique, which houses the personal collection of Emile Guimet; and the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, where the permanent collection includes works by Matisse and Delaunay.
