Musée de l'Homme and Chaillot – National

Dance Theater. Often left out of tourist

itineraries, the Palais de Chaillot is worth

visiting for the magnificent architecture as well

as the extraordinary museums. Plus there is a

wonderful view over the Eiffel Tower and the

Champs du de Mars from the Esplanade des

Libertés et des Droits de l'Homme, between

the two wings. And there are several places

to eat including the Café de l'Homme, at the

back of the back of the Musée de l'Homme,

one of the favourite spots for Parisians in

summer with a terrace overlooking the tower

opened in 2020.

The space between the palais and the Seine

is set with gardens, designed by Jean-Charles

Alphand, and an array of fountains. Within

its gardens, two large animal statues stood

– a rhinoceros and an elephant, which were

removed and stored during the demolition of

the old palace, and have been located next to

the entrance of the Musée d’Orsay since 1986.
