If you don’t how to get to the Eiffel Tower (bad tourist!), Trocadéro would be the place to start. Stood on a hill overlooking our most famous monument, it’s not only great for photos but also for culture; in the Palais de Chaillot, the huge symmetrical building dating from the Universal Exposition of 1937 that swings out and around on both sides, you’ll find three museums, a theatre and the Café de l’Homme ,a very posh restaurant with a very special view… The building has also played its part in history. This is where the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was signed in 1948.
Walk down the hill and through the bucolic gardens - unsurprising called the Jardin du Trocadéro - and you’ll come across the entrance to Cinéaqua, Paris’ huge (and expensive) aquarium (the rest is buried into the hillside), some statues from the 1930s and the Warsaw fountain - Paris’ biggest - more than 100 metres long with impressive water cannons and eight levels of waterfalls.
Once at the bottom, all you have to do is cross over the Seine and you’re ready to visit that big brown iron thing. What was it called again?... ;-)
