The city of love ! Is what everyone knows Paris by. The site of some of the most stunningly beautiful urban landscapes in the world, Paris is also an earthy, eternally vibrant city of contrasts and rough edges. The fascination of the French capital – ‘the city of cities’ as Victor Hugo put it – is eternal. It has been growing and changing for over 2,000 years, and each of its many layers is rich in history and intrigue. Unlike many European cities, it was left almost unscathed by the two world wars, and its celebrated streets, monuments and museums still work their centuries-old magic today.
Paris is a city ideal for strolling – there is always something completely different around the next corner
