There are elegant Paris neighbourhoods and then there is Passy - Trocadéro.
Balzac, Victor Hugo, Longchamp, Prix de l'Arc, La Petite Ceinture, Musée d'Art Moderne, Trocadero Gardens, Palais de Chaillot, Musée Marmottan, Musée du Vin
Balzac, Benjamin Franklin and Victor Hugo lived here. Today many of the city's wealthiest residents do the same. Only here will you find the Musée d’Art Moderne on avenue de New York, the English gardens at Ranelagh and the Musée du Vin on Square Charles Dickens! Enjoy the sparkling Eiffel Tower at night from the plinth of the Palais de Chaillot, across the Trocadéro gardens and the Seine. Feast on the largest collection in the world of Monet's works at the Musée Marmottan and follow with a real feast from the food shops on rue de l'Annonciation.
Keep an eye for the "taggeurs" as they create the best of Paris' urban graffiti along La Petite Ceinture, the hidden treasure that is the city's abandoned railway belt. And for a completely contrasting experience, enjoy the sport of kings at Longchamp, particularly if you are in the vicinity on the first Sunday of October when it hosts the Prix de l"Arc de Triomphe, Europe's most prestigious horse race.

Palais Chaillot and Jardin du Trocadero
The plinth at Palais Chaillot cannot be passed up for an ET photo op!
And it is a favoured place for wedding cars to stop off for that special photo!
The impressive Bull and Deer and Hercules with Bull statutes but lunch is lunch!.
The kiosk below the fountains is where to rent that sportscar you always fancied driving along the banks of the Seine!
The museums at Palais Chaillot
Place du Trocadero
With the Eiffel Tower framed in the morning sunlight by the Palais de Chaillot wings, Cafe du Trocadero is our favourite place to linger over an early cafe au lait.
A wonderful location…
… and close by are many small shops of the highest quality for all of your daily needs.
John and Marylouise Bailey, USA, April 2014 | stayed in Avenue Victor Hugo in Trocadéro - Passy
Palais de Tokyo on avenue President Wilson ...
... houses the Paris Museum of Modern Art (the national version is in the Pompidou Centre)
Avenue de New York runs along the right bank of the Seine
They say the city starts to relax more once you reach la Muette metro station!
The elegant La Gare restaurant in the old Ranelagh station
The wonderful Ranelagh Garden and adjacent Monet Museum
La Petit Ceinture (the little belt)
- what was formerly a railway line is now a super amenity for the nature lovers, walkers and joggers of the 15th and 16th arrondissements.
The streets and houses of the north of the 16th district are quite impressive!
And are reflected in the quality of the local shops and bars.
Whatever the neighbourhood you are never far from a little supermarket and a decent baguette.
Passy - Trocadero is an ideal base in central Paris from which to easily access Chateau de Versailles.
- 25 to 30 minutes on the RER C train from the stations, avenue Henri Martin, Boulainvilliers and Kennedy - Radio France.
