Autumn is a great time to visit Paris and to inspire you I'll be sharing some of the places I love in this beautiful city. We’ll start our tour by one of my favorite places, the Trocadéro.
You can reach this part of the city on foot, heading to Trocadéro Square (it’s right near the Arc de Triomphe) or Metro (station Trocadéro). Across the avenue and passing between the two wings of the Palais de Chaillot, we find ourselves in the magnificent Trocadéro’s terraces, with superb views of the gardens and fountains, and in the background, imposing, the Eiffel Tower.
The palace is a huge neoclassical building, built in the first half of last century for the World Fair of 1937 and there you can also visit the Navy Museum and the Museum of Man.
The Trocadéro is perfect for taking pictures, enjoy the views and the freshness of the gardens (and even the fountains). Walking down the fairways and then across the Seine by the Pont d’Iéna you’ll arrive at the Eiffel Tower. If you are physically well prepared you can climb the stairs, but if your resilience is more psychological than physical, you better choose to queue for the lifts. In my next visit to Paris I promise I’ll get some strength or some patience and go to the top of the Tower.
In the evening, the Trocadéro’s terraces are also one of the ideal places to see the Eiffel Tower lit up and the show of the lights and the fountains.
