directions

KEY POINTS:

  • We are not meeting at the Eiffel Tower itself. If you're at the Eiffel Tower, you're in the wrong place. Please see more below.
  • It is recommended you take the metro or Uber/ taxi to our meeting spot, it is not advised to walk as you could get lost.
  • You must allow 30-45 minutes to get to the Eiffel Tower, depending on where you're staying. Traffic is often heavy, especially in the morning and late afternoon. I will only be able to hold your session 20 minutes (5 minutes if you've booked the mini-session), so please ensure you're on time. 
  • If you're early, just wait for me, I'll be there!
  • Visit the Paris transport site for specific directions, the site is in English. https://www.ratp.fr/en

Look for this sandwich shop, I'll be standing near here. More photos below.

 

Many Picture Me Paris Photo Sessions that incorporate the Eiffel Tower begin at Trocadéro. This is NOT the area that is right near the Eiffel Tower, as if you were going to go up in it, rather it is the area across the river from the main Eiffel Tower area, where you see fountains in summer, and where you'll find the Palais de Chaillot and Trocadero area, pictured above.

There are several main ways to get to Trocadéro to the meeting spot, please choose one of these so that you are on time and do not get lost. The Eiffel Tower Trocadero area is very busy, so it's important to follow the directions on where to meet.

METRO

Take line 9 of the Paris metro and get off at the stop TROCADÉRO. When you come out of the main metro exit, there will be a brown sandwich shop called "Les Gourmandises du Trocadero" on the left side, this is where I'll be waiting. This is on street level. 

If you're coming out of the metro and you're near restaurants like Le Wilson, you need to cross the street to the other side to Trocadero.

If you're coming from another direction, take metro line 6 of the Paris metro and get off at the stop TROCADÉRO. When you come out of the main metro exit, there will be a brown sandwich shop on your left called "Les Gourmandises du Trocadero", and a little souvenir shop, this is where I'll be waiting.

This is on street level.

TAXI OR UBER

If you're taking Uber or a taxi to our meeting spot, tell them to drop you off in front of the Trocadero parvis in front of the Cité de Architecture/Musée de l'HommeThe address is 17 Place du Trocadéro et du 11 Novembre, 75116, Paris. 

When you get out of the car, you'll see a brown sandwich shop called "Les Gourmandises du Trocadero" to your left, and a little souvenir shop, that's where I'll be. It's on STREET LEVEL. Do not walk up onto the concrete platform, as you've gone too far then. Stay on street level.

Please read below for maps, photos and a video at the very end.

if you get lost

If you lose your direction, please call or text me at +33 07 62 10 72 67. If you're calling from a US phone you dial 00 33 and then 07 62 10 72 67. I will not be able to come and find you, as that will cut into our session time, but I'll try to guide you to our meeting point. 

If you're coming out of the metro and you're near restaurants like Le Wilson, you need to cross the street to the other side to Trocadero.

if you're late

Please allow 30-45 minutes for traffic. I will only hold sessions for 20 minutes if I hear from you. If I don't hear from you, it's considered a no-show and the session is cancelled. If our session is a 20-minute session, I'll only hold your session for 5 minutes. If you're going to be late, please contact me. Please be respectful of me and the other clients I have the day of your session and be on time. Thank you!

 You can see a nice overview of the Eiffel Tower from here, so it's a good place to start. This is the sandwich shop, I'll be standing near here. If you are AT the Eiffel Tower itself, you need to cross the river, come to this area and walk all the way up the steps and across the concrete area to the street level.
