A night out in Paris La Défense
View date


Discover La Défense at dusk, when all the activity has died down and the 160,000 employees have left, with this unusual tour, when the towers and works of art are revealed in all their greatness... You'll rediscover the calm of this area, far from the incessant noise of the day. 

This district, which looks like a little Manhattan on the Seine, has plenty of surprises in store for you! You'll go back to the origins of the district's construction and pass by some of its finest achievements.

La Défense was built on the historic Arc de Triomphe-Concorde-Louvre road, used until the 18th century to travel from the Tuileries Palace to the hunting grounds of Saint-Germain-en-Laye. Works of art and gardens have added a touch of colour and greenery.

The guide will lead you through the most interesting places, commenting on her stroll with original anecdotes and showing you this district from a new angle.

Your guide is from L'Echappée Belle, a company of guide-lecturers set up nearly thirty years ago. They offer a wide range of tours and walks in Paris and the Ile-de-France region. Their guides have a solid background in art history and know Paris inside out. Their tours are lively, full of anecdotes, and they make sure that every participant has a great time.
