We went to a performance at the very nice theater inside this office building. The building is huge and takes up a lot of real estate. The building is not very attractive in my opinion, brutal architecture. But the mission is important.

For lunch and relaxing time, the japanese garden is the best. The people are very nice. But you can just enter there if you know someone inside or in a tour. The restaurants inside are expensive so be aware of that.

I spent one day at Unesco to work with my Professor as a PhD Student. The building is amazing, so close to the Tour! The entrance is made with glass door

A place more important for its role than for its beauty. Close to Ecole Militaire and on the way to Tour Eiffel it deserves no more than a fast look.

Our guide book mentioned that the gardens of the Unesco building had some interesting sculpture - we were nearby so visited. Waste of time - staff weren't interested, did not appear to understand French or English, but after some negotiation allowed us to access a...More

Tour Eiffel / Invalides
With the Eiffel Tower at its core, the Invalides area
