When I first arrived to Paris, my favorite places to strike a pose next to the Iron lady were Place de Trocadéro and Champs de Mars. What’s great about taking the traditional picture at Trocadéro is that you can have all the Eiffel Tower behind you or next to you. You cannot visit Paris without striking a pose there. Champs de Mars is the second typical location for a picture where you’ll have the greenish Champs de Mars behind you with the Iron Lady at the back. You can even sit there for a Parisian photo.
But later on, I discovered that there are much more interesting locations and wonderful spots to capture the Iron lady and strike hilarious poses.
When going down to Trocadéro gardens, you will become closer to the Iron Lady. When you reach the end of the gardens, you will be in the middle of the street where you will have the Eiffel Tower behind you. You can take a great shot in which you will have the glorious Parisian street with the most interesting part of the Iron Lady.
Rue de l’Université
While I was walking next to the other side of the Eiffel Tower, I reached the famous Rue de L’Université where you will lift your head up a little bit to see the huge iron Lady. It is the perfect spot to take a shot with a cup of coffee or even to strike a pose. You will feel that the Tower is hidden behind the glorious buildings in that street.
Pont de Bir-Hakim
Whether it was day or night, Pont de Bir-Hakim is one of the best spots to strike a pose next to the Eiffel Tower. Whether you take it on the borders of the bridge sitting on the roof or in the middle of the bridge, the picture will be hilarious ! If you take it inside the bridge, you will have the wonderful lights upward, the columns of the bridge and the Iron Lady.
Pont Alexandre III
One of the most luxurious pictures that you can ever take is on the bridge of Alexander III. While you’ll be surrounded by golden stripes, you will have the Iron Lady right behind you. I tried to take this photo more at night where you’ll admire the Eiffel Tower enlightening your picture.
