Crossed by the Seine and located west of Paris, the Hauts-de-Seine department is famous for its European business district: the La Défense district. It has been classified as a tourist area by the Ministry, which has thus given businesses the opportunity to remain open on Sundays. The shopping centres of Les Quatre Temps and CNIT will welcome you for your shopping as well as for the rest of your Sunday activities. However, it is no less impressive to stroll through a Manhattan-style landscape, especially if you have the opportunity to visit the Defence Arch: the work of Danish architect Otto von Spreckelsen, it looks like a gigantic hollow cube covered in white marble, and to enjoy the view that it is the only one that makes possible. Indeed, it is at the end of the historical axis that crosses all of Paris, passing through the Pont de Neuilly, the Arc de Triomphe, the Avenue des Champs-Élysées, the obelisk of Luxor, and the statue of Louis XIV in the Napoleon court of the Louvre. This destination also has a large number of green spaces. The many hiking trails, the banks of the Seine, as well as the forests, parks and gardens that encourage walking, are among the assets of the Hauts-de-Seine
