Grande Arche de la Défense, Paris: 34 reviews and 49 photos

  A symbolic photo of the Grande Arc
by Dee22

The Grande Arc is the symbol of the Défense area, and a popular viewpoint for tourists.
Unless you are afraid of hights, you gotta take the outside glas-escelator to the top. Actually there is not much to see inside up there - some paintings, a souvenier-shop and a restaurant, but the view from there is amazing!
You'll have a perfect view of the entire Défense-area, as well as the view towards the center city, where you can see the old Arc de Triomph, and even longer on a clear day. It's beautiful!
Standing inside the cube of the Arc, try going to the 'back-side' to enjoy the view of a parc and a cemetary along with some funny steel monuments.

Address: La Défense
Directions: Take the metro to the Défense area...no need for further directions.
