Palais de Chaillot - Jardins du Trocadero - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
The promenade at the top of the hill on which the Palais de Chaillot stands offers a spectacular view over the Jardins du Trocdero and the Eiffel Tower, as seen in this panorama. The picture shows this most popular tourist attraction in Paris dominating the skyline. Panning round to the right the image shows the Musee de l'Homme on one side of the square at the top of the hill, and then the Théâtre National de Chaillot on the other. Not surprising then that this is also a popular place, the view is dramatic.
