What’s the Allure?
Paris, known to many as the eternal “City of Lights” welcomes a remarkable 42 million visitors a year. This fact makes this capital city (the largest in France) the most visited destination in Europe. Paris is world-famous for its culture, fashion, and art scenes as well as its cuisine and architecture. It features no less than four UNESCO World Heritage sites and has been celebrated over the centuries thanks to notable historical figures. Today, visitors can enjoy all this town has to offer: high-end restaurants, iconic landmarks, top-rated museums, and active cultural experience.
Points of Interest
Paris is home to some of the most famous monuments in the world, many of which are found in and around the heart of the city. The Louvre, with its vast collection of over 3,000 works of art, offers evening hours on Wednesdays and Fridays for those with little time to spare. The iconic Eiffel Tower is a “must-see” experience, especially its dazzling evening lights display.
Eating and shopping are favored pastimes in Paris. There are restaurants and shops to suit all tastes and budgets. The St Germain district offers stylish boutiques and equally quaint eateries while the trendy Le Marais district features edgier designers and quirky flavors. On the historic Champs Elysees Avenue, visitors can shop in the popular name brands’ stores, grab a bite to eat and then dance the night away at neighboring hotspots.
