La Defense is not the classic Paris but it completes the picture with it's modern architecture and art. It is a strong statement about the future and it definitely worth a visit.

Over 300 booths made this the largest Christmas market in Paris. Had a good time but it was very commercial, not a lot of local or unique items. Lots of duplication. Over 300 booths.

Plenty to see at this large Christmas market. Lot's of craft and Christmas goods to buy and also a great choice of food to try. Worth a trip out from central Paris.

Original architecture in a contemporary context. You can go to the roof by a peculiar lift for the panorama and if you like an appetizer (40 euro). Close to this building there are many shops all around and in the underground. Full of people moving...More

You can safely skip La Défense if you have limited time in Paris or have no interest in anything built within the last 50 years. But if you have an extra afternoon, want to get out of the tourist zones, or are curious how a...More
