A nice place to visit, it gives a modern feeling. A nice trip from central Paris, seeing something different in Paris, not too many tourists there.

This place is very commercial compared to the rest of Paris, you can find may things to do here like shop or eat lunch. There are a few business schools around too

Nice huge building that you will feel wow once you see it. It is nice in the morning and gorgeous by night. Just have an amusing stroll in the area around and enjoy a relaxing walk between the different huge buildings and gardens.
