Having been a Parisian for a while, I have learned two things… 1) the locals don’t dislike the tourist, they’re just indifferent and 2) the charm of the Eiffel Tower never really wears off. I mean, seriously, even after n number of visits to this ‘wonder of the world’, I, at least, still can’t seem to get over it. Without any judgments, hence, I understand that once in Paris you want to get the best shots of the Eiffel Tower in your pictures. That’s exactly why I created this list of the 6 Best Spots for the Eiffel Tower shots.
Do note that this list will henceforth be constantly updated if I do find any new places or such.
For now, this list has 6 of the top spots from where you can get the best street shots with the Eiffel Tower in them looking effortlessly chic living your best Parisian life. This doesn’t include Trocadero gardens as that’s the most obvious (and crowded) place to take the Eiffel Tower picture from.
Since you to look the part to play it, I actually went around to most of these spots to get my pictures taken at these 6 Best Spots for the Eiffel Tower shots. Hence, I decided on being decked up in this beautiful Purple Tulle Dress from my Partner Site- Shein, I sure looked the part. This dress is not only perfect for a romantic vibes’ shoot in the city but also for day parties, weddings, and so on. Honestly, it comes at a very small price but you certainly can’t tell that it is cheap in any way whatsoever. I definitely vouch for this dress and recommend it.

Now back to our list!
Best Spots for the Eiffel Tower shots:
1. Rue de l’Universite
This has to be the most iconic and celebrated street shot spot for the Eiffel Tower picture. It’s always crowded and can be a bit overwhelming, at times, too. I recommend going here early in the morning to catch the best of the tilting sunlight and get that perfect picture.
2. Rue St. Dominique
Tucked away in one of the poshest areas of the city, this street boasts of a mix of old and new that the city has to offer. As it is a bit further away from the Eiffel tower itself, you can get a beautiful shot with the top of the tower from this street. It looks even better in the Parisian evening when the street and the majestic tower lights up!
3. Square Rapp
Now, this is a (not so secret) secret spot all bloggers and Instagrammers are aware of. In fact, you’ll always find many of them here. The buildings curve perspectives to create the perfect frame for the Eiffel Tower here. I recommend going here during the golden hour to get your best shot.
4. Avenue de Camoens
A beautiful stairway with the Eiffel Tower at the end literally lights up the sunset. It’s definitely off-beat and a little less explored as compared to the other spots I’ve mentioned so far in the list.
5. Pont de Bir Hakim
The bridge from Inception (movie) also spots some of the best views of the Eiffel Tower. Of course, the bridge itself makes for some great frames too. If you go early in the morning, you’ll find all kinds of spots free enough to get that memorable Paris shot.
6. Pont Alexandre III
This is definitely my favorite spot for the Eiffel Tower shot in the city because it’s from a beautiful bridge, encompassing the essence of the city, the river seine and more. I absolutely love the vibe here. The best part is that you can come here at any time of the day and get your best shot.
So, that’s all in my list of the best spots for the Eiffel tower shots today. If you can think of any more, do leave them in the comments below.
