Easy on the eyes and steeped in history, Paris earns its reputation as one of the most charming and culturally rich cities in Europe. Blessed with majestic tree-lined boulevards, packed with tempting boulangeries and patisseries, and teeming with countless quaint cafés spilling onto sidewalks, the City of Light offers travellers a treasure trove of stimuli not soon forgotten.
A touchstone of any visit must surely be Paris’ world-class museums and art galleries, from major stops like the Louvre and Museé d’ Orsay to the comparatively smaller collections at Musée Rodin and Musée Marmottan Monet. Of course, iconic structures like the Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame de Paris, and Arc de Triomphe headline most to-see lists, while the famous Avenue des Champs-Élysées is still the city’s centre of hi-so fashion.
Stylish and sophisticated, Paris thrills in ways few other cities can.
