This is Paris' spanking new, bright and shiny mega auditorium, sports arena and concert hall. So glorious is it that THE Rolling Stones played the inaugural concert on opening day in late October 2017. Located just past La Defense it's accessible via the Metro line 1, RER A and soon there will even be a TGV (fast train) stop there. The arena cost 353 million Euros to build and holds up to 40K spectators. It will be used as much for sporting events as it will be for musical concerts. It will be a nice draw for the upcoming 2024 Olympic Games that were just awarded to Paris. Starting December 2017 it will be the home of the Rugby club, Racing 92, a Top 14 ranked rugby team from Ile de France.

- Holiday Attractions: "It's not as far as you think it is nor is it very difficult to get to. And the nice thing about going in this direction, is that La Defense houses a great shopping center, too."
- Best for Holiday Attractions Because: All the bells and whistles are featured at this new Parisian mega-auditorium. Hey, even the Stones wanted to be the first ones to play here!
