4. Next to Pont d’IenaOne of my favorite photos in Paris was taken here. The trees on the street perfectly framed our photo. We also found a carousel nearby and so we proceeded to play with photography angles.
5. TrocaderoPerched on the hilltop, Trocadero offers an unobstructed vista of the Eiffel Tower. Not only that, it is less crowded! This vantage point itself is a gem consist of a park(the lower part) and a beautifully tiled plaza (the upper part) located between the Palais de Chaillot and the Palais du Trocadéro. The plaza is lined with gold statues, providing more interesting photography angles…. time to go wild with perspectives!
6. Champ de MarsYou’ve seen it a million thousand times on the internet. It is the classic view featured on 80% of all Paris postcards. Stop at École Militaire (traveling on metro line 8), load up your picnic basket at a nearby grocery store and spend a beautiful morning on the lawns with a good book. Alternatively, come here in the evening and watch the light comes on.
7. Directly underStand at the base of the Eiffel Tower and look up for a “different” view. Best thing of all, I don't think anyone would be able to photobomb your pictures.
8. Mur de La PaixYou can take some amazing photographs here through the Peace Wall at the very end of Champs de Mars.
9. From the Seine RiverIf budget allows, I highly recommend taking a cruise down the Seine River or hop onto a batobus (a "water taxi"). It is one of the best ways to appreciate the Eiffel Tower. I’ll let the photos do the talking.
10. From the many bridges
My favorite is the Passerelle Debilly. Another honorable mention is Pont Alexandre III, although it doesn’t offer a close-up view of the Eiffel Tower, crossing the bridge is a one of a kind experience: you’ll see the golden statues, the River Seine and the Eiffel tower from afar, all icons of Paris, captured in a single photo. Besides, if you are visiting Paris with your significant other, go to Pont Neuf (where all the love locks are located) to confess your love.
ps: to all boys visiting Paris with your girlfriend, NEVER ever tie your shoelace in front of her.
