Place du Trocadéro - 75016 Paris
Trocadéro - Passy
If there is one garden you really must visit when you go to the Eiffel Tower, it’s the Trocadéro gardens. Created for the Universal Exposition in 1937, this green space of nearly 10,000 m² offers a stunning view of the Eiffel Tower dominating the capital (don’t forget your camera). The centrepiece of the gardens is the famous Warsaw fountains which, with its 20 water cannons, offers a remarkable water display, especially on summer evenings when the illuminations around the fountains add to the attraction. There are a number of sculptures to be admired, including gilded bronze animal statues, and the two stone statues, 'L'homme' by Pierre Traverse and 'La Femme' by Daniel Bacqué.
