Be defensive about a trip to La Defense La Défense Review

It is a big square and a bunch of office buildings. Other than a small shopping mall below ground it is just not worth the effort to go and visit. We were pretty dissapointed in it.

Unique Suggestions: Turn around and go back down into the Metro and go someplace else.

Fun Alternatives: Stop at Arc de Triomphe. At least you have some sights to see, brasseries to drink at and world class shopping.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
