Esplanade du Trocadero

From the Esplanade du Trocadéro, you have an exceptional view on the pools below, the gardens, the Seine river and the Eiffel Tower. Built for the 1937 World Fair, there are two pavilions, continued by curved wings, that constitute the Palais de Chaillot, lined with gilded bronze statues. This set houses a theatre room and several museums: the Museums of Man and Navy, the brand new City for Architecture and Heritage and the Chaillot Theatre.
