Paris

Paris

Paris, the capital of France, is one of Europe’s great cities. Long considered the paragon of style, Paris still remains the most glamorous and decadent city in Europe. It’s home to over two million people, and is in the heart of industrial northern France.

Paris is quite literally divided in to two by the River Seine and each side has a very different feel to it. The left bank is famous for its artistic and intellectual life, while the right is home to the business and political side. The city is divided into twenty different districts, or ‘arrondissements’.

The most tangible and immediate pleasures of Paris are to be found in its street life and along the leisurely banks and bridges of River Seine. Few cities of the world can compete with the thousand-and-one cafes, bars and restaurants that line every street and boulevard. It’s the city’s compactness that makes it possible to experience the individual feel of the different quarters.
