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

i have a bias opinion sadly because i had an internship there so the rooms are filled with memories but the grey and somber aspect is beautiful not esthetically but because you understand why they built it the way they did, its to appreciate history

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.
