We ended a memorable stay in Paris with a picnic on Parc du Champ de Mars, with delicacies chosen on Rue Cler. It was a highlight of our trip as we enjoyed wine, cheeses, meats, and pastries alongside Parisians. As the sunset and the Eiffel...More

Having wandered here many years ago I crossed into this park from the river. The first change was a increased security under the Eiffel Tower which squeezed the huge masses into narrow channels at the base. The park is full of people selling tourist tat...More

This was the first place we headed. If you are there on the weekend check out the street market. We made the mistake of thinking it was there every day, no just on the weekend. It is a little dirtier then we expected, but it...More

Really crowded and noisy, a lot of people drinking around, lots of peddlers trying to sell statuettes but a must see place.

Nice views of the Eiffel Tower from here. It’s worth a stop if you’re going to see the tower in the day or at night.

Be sure to come from the Ecole Militaire direction to have one of the most beautiful views of the Eiffel tower in my opinion. Also this is a great place to have a pique-nique as it is less crowded than the nearby Trocadero. On the...More

The parc is at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, so of course it has great views of it - probably the best you can get without being in a helicopter. When we visited it was very dry and dusty - the dust was everywhere,...More

Huge open area around the Eiffel Tower with fancy neighborhoods on either side. This was the site of several worlds fairs, now a huge park. Watch out for gypsies working scams.

We didn't feel unsafe in either area. We had dinner about a block away from the Champ de Mars and then walked over to the park to watch the Eiffel Tower twinkle at night. You have to be careful but it wasn't unsafe. Both are... More
