You know that when you arrive at Paris, you cannot leave without taking a proper photo of their famous Eiffel tower. When I mean proper, I mean pictures of the Eiffel Tower without hordes of tourists vying for a space with it. Isn’t that just annoying?

6 best locations for an unspoilt view of the Eiffel Tower

1. Alight at Trocadéro metro station and walk towards the direction of the Eiffel

2. Also the most popular spot, in front of Champ de Mars

Tip: beware of pickpockets, scam sellers of the Eiffel Tower keychains.

3. Climb up the Arc de Triomphe
