If you go to La Defence, you will come across CNIT. They have a very pleasant ambience and is spacious. I usually go there with my friends to hand out or take a cup of coffee after classes.

Surprising lack of innovation of the stores given the design of the building and really the selection of shops was quite disappointing. The restaurants are limited in their variety of food. Not sure who it is supposed to be attracting

This is an uncommon structural solution as everything is arranged under a concrete shell roof and we thought this complex really worked for us. It mainly includes a hotel, upmarket shops and a decathlon on a number of levels with many large shops and small...More

This is a shopping complex in La Defense area, though there is not much to do in this shopping center. Visit only if you have while in La Defense.

Average mall to visit if you are at the Hilton La Defense and need to while some time. Nothing special. Quite surprised that it didn't have a Costa, Nero, Starbucks or any coffee place. Fortunately the Nespresso gave a coffee on the house even though...More

If you're looking to shop, I'd skip CNIT and go to the nearby Quatre Temps mall. We did visit here several times to exchange money, though. You can get to it directly from the La Defense metro station if you look for the signs.

We stayed at the hotel around the corner so we had to check this building out. Don't know much about it. Amazing architecture. Walked around it and investigated a bit. Cool. Not a must see but cool because we were there.

Variety of stores, super markets, cafes and restaurants. It has fun places for kids and toy stores. Metro access is there as well.
