PARIS: Trocadéro

Hey guys!  WOW it has been way too long since my last post!  Things have been so busy for us with traveling and changing jobs but I’m trying to get back at it.  I’m super excited about today’s post as it takes me back to Paris and I hope it does the same for you too. 🙂

In one of my very first posts about Paris I talked about picnicking at the Eiffel Tower and how cool that is.  It’s such a great way to see this Parisian monument.

Another fun way to see the Eiffel Tower is from Trocadéro.

I’m sure you’ve seen pics on Instagram of people posing with the Eiffel Tower way in the background or squished between their fingers.  Exhibit A – my own Insta post from 2012.Paris, France, Europe, Travel, Paris in one week, Trocadero, Eiffel Tower, Picnicking at the Eiffel Tower, Metro Line 9

Well, that my friends is Trocadéro and it’s a must do!

Trocadéro is located in the 16th arrondissement and is easily accessible via the metro.  Just take Metro Line 9 to stop Trocadéro and you’ll be dropped off right there.  It’s super easy to find.

The sun was setting and the sky made for a beautiful backdrop of pinks and blues when we arrived.  It was so pretty!  (Insert heart eye emoji here.)Paris, France, Europe, Travel, Paris in one week, Trocadero, Eiffel Tower, Picnicking at the Eiffel Tower, Metro Line 9

Of course we had to get a picture…Paris, France, Europe, Travel, Paris in one week, Trocadero, Eiffel Tower, Picnicking at the Eiffel Tower, Metro Line 9

From Trocadéro we wandered through the park as the sky turned darker and the Eiffel Tower was lit.  This guy has a pretty good view huh?Paris, France, Europe, Travel, Paris in one week, Trocadero, Eiffel Tower, Picnicking at the Eiffel Tower, Metro Line 9

It never gets old seeing this amazing piece of history and architecture.  I love how you can see the Eiffel Tower from so many spots in the city.  Trocadéro is just another way to view it.  Have fun heading over there!  Make sure to soak it all in, after all, that’s what the Parisians do.

My next post is my last post in my Paris series.  I’m so sad!  And it’s actually about a little day trip outside of the city to Giverny where we visited Monet’s garden.  You will not want to miss it!

  1. These pics are so beautiful!!! The colors in the sky both at sunset and after dark are so magical. Definitely want to go back here. That naked statue definitely needs some company 😂 P.s. I forgot you took that pic in 2012! Haha.
