Seen one, seen 'em all. The Arch is worth the trip, though.

This is a concrete jungle which is practical for offices but is hardly attractive to short term visitors.

What should be so special? the Grand Arche OK, but the rest.... could be anywhere, NY, Jakarta, Singapore... well, going up all the way to the Grand Arche gives a rather incredible view, especially when the Eiffel tower is closed, rather the lifts taking you up ;-)

On the second day of our arrival in Paris we walked just three blocks from our hotel to the Arc de Triomphe and looked down the long but arrow straight Champs-Elysees. We began our walk and four hours later entered the Louvre at the end of our journey. La Defense is an absolute stunning business district of Paris and well worth the trek. I make the walk every time I am in Paris. Stop along the way and enjoy the auto museum, fine art shops, tantalizing bakeries, and fashion shops. This is one of the highlights of Paris!
