Walk in Paris : 8 breathtaking views of the Eiffel Tower

Walk in Paris : 8 breathtaking views of the Eiffel Tower

You can't miss it. Not only because it's the symbol of Paris, but also because sometimes it looms on the horizon, from near or far, surprising us almost every time. The Eiffel Tower can be seen and photographed without getting tired of it ! We'll leave aside the famous Trocadero and Champ de Mars, which you should already be familiar with, to present you 8 ideas of places from which to admire the Iron Lady. 

Bir Hakeim Bridge

This is the next bridge to the west, after the Pont d'Iéna, which faces it. A little easy, you might say, but we love its riveted arches, reminiscent of the Tower itself. No wonder lovers and newlyweds choose it as the backdrop for their romantic photo shoots.

The Tour Montparnasse

Let's take a step back and measure its huge dimensions. The Montparnasse Tower is a good option, whether you choose to climb up to its rooftop or sit down at a table in the Ciel de Paris restaurant to enjoy a breathtaking view. Bonus : come for dinner to admire the sunset and Paris by night. 

The Pompidou Centre

Those who love rooftops will be pleased to know that you can, of course, see the Eiffel Tower from the top of the Centre Pompidou, located in the 3rd arrondissement. Better still, you can take advantage of the George terrace on the top floor for a drink or dinner overlooking the rooftops of Paris.

From the Seine

It seems obvious, but we really need to insist ! There's no shortage of options for cruising along the Seine, and there are plenty of boats to take you from one end of the capital to the other. And the sensation of sailing at the foot of the Iron Lady is simply incomparable - you just can't get enough of it.

The Quai Branly

Combine architecture and culture by observing the Eiffel Tower from this institution in the 7th arrondissement. The spire of the Eiffel Tower can be seen behind the leafy façade of this museum specialised in Arts and Civilisations around the world. If you go in to see an exhibition, its restaurant, on the roof terrace, offers an incredible panoramic view of the Tower. 

Rue de Belleville

Apart from the fact that we love this district, when you decide to leave via Rue de Belleville, look up despite the height difference ! The Eiffel Tower rises up between the buildings, providing the perfect Parisian view to help you take THE picture of the day.

Square Rapp

The Eiffel Tower is close by here, but seems to be trapped between the Art Nouveau-style facades of this pretty, charming square. We're actually in an alleyway - around 50 metres long - framed by four magnificent, well-preserved buildings. It's a postcard picture of a timeless view of the capital... It'll be almost impossible to date the photo !

Avenue de Camoëns

Still close to the Tower, let's cross the Seine to the north to find the tiny avenue de Camoëns (just 115 metres long). It is linked to the Boulevard Delessert below by a double-flight staircase, the top of which forms a cute balcony with a view. The Eiffel Tower towers above the trees and buildings, seemingly just a few metres away. A perfect shot.
