“Huge Covered Mall - Quite Pricey”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

This is a covered mall great for rainy days in Paris and easily accessible by Metro. Large Stores but compared to the US very expensive. Lots of fun to walk around and huge foodcourt with a big variety to choose from. The sights outside the mall are quite impressive but then you must have good weather to enjoy.

“Interesting place”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

So most people wont make their way here to see La Defense however they are missing a great site among so many while in Paris.

It was great weather while visiting so there were many people out and about however its much quieter on the weekends when all the business people are at home.

You will get a unique perspective/picture of Paris by visiting this location.

“Great for shopping”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

We didn't go up the actual 'cube' to the museum at the top, but the huge steps are great for sitting on, eating your lunch and watching the world go by. you also get an uninterrupted view all the way down the champs elysees to the arc de triomphe. The shops here are great. It's nice to get a little taste of home with shops like new look and gap. Also it's great for If you need a Starbucks coffee break! Go in December, they have a fantastic Christmas market here, selling all sorts of things from food, clothes jewellery etc.

“Impressive architecture, but starkly functional.”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

La Defense scores highly on convenience, but it still a rather soul-less area that is best seen during the day. Marvel at the interesting modern architecture.
