We had walked right around the fort at Mont Valerien (mavbe 2-3km) and enjoyed the views and the explanatory panels but this was a stunning finale . Very good explanations in English . Apparently you can visit more on a guided tour but the visitor centre was shut and there wasn't any timetable that we could see .

Fortunately my guide was very knowledgeable on WWII and the French Resistance.

Morning visit before the nearby horse racing. Caught the bus from La Defense to the Mont Valerien stop; then a walk. Need to go around the fort to get to the entrance . Eternal flame and many memorials. Could get cold as the highest point in Paris I understand

This is not the happiest place on earth, it is not as well kept as the US military cemetery next door and not much visited but, for people who want to be reminded of the horrors of war and occupation, this is the place to go for a quick visit. Plenty of parking.

This massive memorial is just around the corner from the Suresnes American Cemetery and Memorial and is more than worth a visit. (Just walk around the corner to the left as you're looking at the entrance to the Cemetery and head up the hill. The giant iron double-barred cross of Lorraine will be to your right and the welcome building... More
