Palais de Chaillot and Trocadero fountains
Friday - day 7 (continued)
We hadn't realized we would be so late leaving the Eiffel Tower. Instead of boarding the Batobus again, we bought drinks and a snack from a street vender and walked across the Pont d'Iéna, a bridge which opened in 1814 and is named for Napoleon's victory in the Battle of Jena.
We found a comfortable bench in front of the Palais de Chaillot where we could watch the Trocadero fountains, enjoy our snacks and plan how we would explore Paris that evening.
