The panoramic views from Mont Valerien over Paris are stunning and as you walk down the hill towards Suresnes your view stretches as far as the eye can see with the Eiffel Tower as centre piece. The memorial itself is very touching but there is...More

This place was unknown to me until we arrived in Suresnes, but it was very sobering and moving. It is a tribute with an eternal flame to all the resistance fighters from France killed by the Nazi's. This was actually the very site where they...More

Longing place, with not much to see. Lots of people runs around the area as it is very green. Perhaps this the best way to visit it.

A real unexpected find. Hearing about how Paris should have been reduced to rubble but wasn't, somehow I discovered this gem of a place that is probably little known amongst all but the French. The host, Jenna, was very accommodating, explaining that an English guided...More

Fortunately my guide was very knowledgeable on WWII and the French Resistance. The entire monument is an honorable dedication to those French Resistance members that gave their time, energy, and often their lives for France. Very moving memorial, I highly recommended visiting the nearby American...More
