  • We passed the square at the end of the afternoon, to sit and picnic as most people say to do, but we did not enjoy so much this vibe, kind was cool, but there were a lot of people trying to sell junk, keychain, drinks and things we didn't want, and then It wasn't very nice because these people kept messing with us all the time to offer things. After it started to darken (and we had already talked not to all sellers) it was cool anyway. We sat on the floor admiring the Eiffel tower under the sunset, the sky changing colors, passing through several very beautiful tones, and finally, the tower was illuminated, a little later, the best part, the tower lights up for 5 minutes (all the time) and is a super show. Sure is a mandatory tour!!

  • Located near the Tower of Paris, the Shrine is a good place to photograph the Tower of Paris, and if the weather is good, build a walk to the Tower of Paris and take a picture along the road.

  • Lovely park to visit while you are near the Eiffel tower. During the winter this place is a bit unvisited by tourists. The gardens are very clean and green! You should visit there with your kids and beloved spouse, especially during the summer. If you want to see the whole scenery of the gardens, you will have to go to the Eiffel tower. Take into consideration that it will cost you!! But if you just want to spend time with your family it isn't necessary at all. I advice to have a picnic near the gardens :)
