You may have seen this place before without realising where it actually was!

A super popular spot for that iconic snap of the Eiffel tower in the background, Rue L’Université has been dubbed one of Paris' most Instagramable spots for the last few years – however, with that title, comes major crowds. If you can manage to get there at a quiet time then you’ve hit lucky. Otherwise you might need to get up extra early if you want that perfect uncrowded photo of the iconic tower in the background.
Another crowded Eiffel tower spot, but easier to find space in than the Rue L’Université, Trocadero terrace in the Trocadero gardens is the platform that will allow you to get the full length of the Eiffel tower behind you. A big, clear, marbled space, it’s perfect to snap that pic in most dramatic outfit to get those major Gossip Girl vibes!
