Found this picture in a travel article in my local newspaper regarding travel to Paris. In the original picture there is a rather large group of bicyclists all standing beside their bikes, but not one of them is looking at the tower.
I think this location is either the Trocadero, or the plaza above the Trocadero. I have been there a few times. On one trip to Paris the rain was falling so hard, we just drove slowly by to catch the glorious view. Hitler and some of his henchmen stood here after Paris fell to his army during WWII. To Hitler's credit (if there is such a thing) none of this fabulous city was destroyed during the time of the German occupation.
