Here are some more photos of the Eiffel Tower that I have taken from various vantage points over the past few years. The first is from the right bank of the Seine, downstream from the tower, with the double-decker Bir-Hakeim Bridge crossing over to the Île aux Cygnes (Island of the Swans). The upper deck of the bridge is for line 6 of the Paris Métro, while the lower deck is for motor vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians.
Looking south from the roof of the Arch of Triumph, Avenue Marceau points directly towards the Montparnasse Tower, while Avenue Iéna points not so directly to the Eiffel Tower. This is one of the photos from my post The Triumph of Cars over People.
From the top of the 210-meter Montparnasse Tower, the Eiffel Tower appears at the end of the park Champs de Mars. In the background, off in the distance, is the 20th century business district La Défense.
Back in 2006, when I took this photo, the base of the Eiffel Tower was not yet fenced in, as it is now. The fences were added later as part of an ongoing program to prevent terrorist attacks.
Here we have the Eiffel Tower and the Montparnasse Tower from an unusual angle, namely from the second floor of the Paris Wing of the Palais de Chaillot. The trees on the left belong to the Trocadéro Gardens.
This photo (also from my Trocadéro post) shows the Eiffel Tower and the back of the statue Apollon Musagète by Henri Bouchard (1875-1960), as seen from the café of the Architecture Museum on the ground floor of the Paris Wing of Palais Chaillot.
Here is the back of the same statue, which now seems to be towering over the Eiffel Tower because of the angle I have chosen.
From the front porch of the Panthéon, looking down Rue Soufflot, we can see the Eiffel Tower in the distance. This photo (above) is from my post Mitterrand and the Panthéon.
This is one of the eighteen Maillol sculptures that are on permanent display at the east end of the Tuileries Garden, near the Place du Carrousel and between two wings of the Louvre Museum. The Eiffel Tower is visible in the distance over her left shoulder and the Orsay Museum off to her right.
This one is from Rue Monttessuy, a street which as far as I know has no particular claim to fame other than a view of the Eiffel Tower.
Rue Sainte-Dominique is in the same neighborhood, and has similar real estate prices.
The Eiffel Tower is of course also visible from the tourist boats that cruise up and down the Seine, though you might have to crane your neck a bit to see the top. Typically, these boats go downstream past the tower, then turn around (there are signs indicating where and how this is allowed, and where it is not) and go back upstream.
Finally, here’s a glimpse of the Eiffel Tower from the passenger basket of the world’s largest tethered balloon, which rises and falls all day long — weather permitting — from its winch and tether in the Parc André Citroën near the southwest corner of Paris.
My photos in this post are from 2006, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018 and 2019.
