Jardins du Trocadéro (Gardens of the Trocadero) is an open space in Paris, located in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, bounded to the northwest by the wings of the Palais de Chaillot and to the southeast by the Seine and the Pont d’Iéna, with the Eiffel Tower on the opposite bank of the Seine.

  1. I love this place, Jude. I’m amazed how many places you have visited over the years. When you are well settled in Cornwall and need a break, please come and see us in Norfolk. Are you unpacked by now? 🙂

      1. Not managed to get into Krakow yet. Travelling up to Belchatow tomorrow afternoon so may be incommunicado for a few days. Weather’s been lovely but I’ve not been further than the local park. Nice blossom! You know all that resting you we’re on about? It’s happened! Sad face. It’s really not me at all xx
