The Palais de Chaillot (French pronunciation: [palɛ d(ə) ʃajo]) is a building at the top of the Chaillot hill in the Trocadéro area in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, France.
For the Exposition Internationale of 1937, the old 1878 Palais du Trocadéro was partly demolished and partly rebuilt to create the Palais de Chaillot. It was designed in classicising "moderne" style by architects Louis-Hippolyte Boileau, Jacques Carlu and Léon Azéma. The Palais consists of two separate wings shaped to form a wide arc, which are those of the former building with new taller portions built in front. The pair of larger central pavilions are also those of the former palais, encapsulated in new construction. The large central hall and towers of the old palais were demolished, leaving only the basement, with a wide esplanade created on top, establishing an open view from the place du Trocadéro to the Eiffel Tower and beyond.

Probably the best place to see Paris during the day or in the evening. It can be very crowded but there are steps and plenty of opportunities to take good shots. There is a light display each evening which makes the Eiffel Tower glow and quite spectacular actually.

Great place to see the Eiffel Tower from afar. Pretty crowded here but you can still get a great shot!

Great view point towards the Eiffel Tower and good place to get out of metro to walk to it. Otherwise, couple simple statues.

Beautiful viewpoint for the Eiffel above the fountains and the gardens. Next to the Trocadero metro station. Beware of the people trying to play games for money! They will rob you off!

Very good food. Big portions and very nice people attending. The prices are also good
