Eiffel Tower as seen from Place du Trocadéro
Views of the Eiffel Tower are never too far away in Paris. It looms over every street of the city, and all you need to do is tilt your head to find it peeking from behind a rooftop or reflecting in your morning coffee. As inescapable as it is, some views are far more superior, albeit clichéd, than the others. The best one of these, arguably, can be had from Place du Trocadéro, a hillside plaza bang opposite the metallic hulk, offering unhindered elevated views that have now come to embrace at least a billion postcards and many more photographs (including this one).
