Best Spots to Take a Picture of the Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower is without any doubt one of the most photographed landmarks in the world. If you travel to Paris, the Tower is possibly the one spot you need to take a picture of. These are the best places to snap the perfect picture from.

Champ de Mars

You will experience one of the most stunning views of the Eiffel Tower from walking along the Champ de Mars. This is the best spot for having a picnic and enjoying the view while eating some fresh baguette, cheese and drinking a delicious wine. If you wait until the evening the Eiffel Tower will lit on sparkles every hour.

Arc de Triomphe

If you want to view a spectacular view of the Eiffel Tower with the city skyline, you should definitely try this spot. After walking almost 300 steps to the top of the Arc de Triomphe you will be greeted by stunning Parisian rooftops and the Eiffel Tower majestically rising in the background.
