Paris is arguably the most recognizable city in the world. Renowned for its iconic beauty, the City of Lights sees a great number of visitors drawn to it year after year. In a word, Paris is simply stunning.
Divided by the river Seine and split into 20 districts, Paris's architectural beauty is its most obvious appeal. Building restrictions have frozen the inner city in the late 19th century. Add to that the world-famous sites such as the Arc de Triomphe
, Louvre Museum
, the Notre Dame, and the Eiffel Tower
, it’s easy to see that Paris is overwhelmingly endowed with architectural marvels.
The birthplace of bohemianism, Paris treasures and nurtures art in all its forms. The Louvre stands out as a must-see for first-time visitors, the Centre Georges Pompidou
a few streets away providing a modern counterpoint. The Musee D’Orsay
is as much as a masterpiece as the art collections it houses of Monet, Van Gogh, and Renoir, to name a few.
Dinning in Paris is a cultural experience for all the senses, and the city’s sidewalks are filled with places to experience it just like the locals.
Paris is served by Charles de Gaulle Airport
while the Eurostar to Brussels and London departs from Gare du Nord
, and overnight connections to Italy depart from Gare de Lyon
