The 'City of Lights,' the 'Fashion Capital of the World', your next holiday?
Just a whisper (in a to-die-for accent) of France's capital conjures images of artists and visionaries, the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, the Champs-Elysees. It's mid-morning croissants and cocktails by the River Seine. It's haute couture. What's the most-visited attraction in the world's most-visited city? The spectacular French Gothic cathedral, Notre Dame de Paris. Construction began in 1163 and it's been a show-stopper since.
The diversity of Paris' famous 20 arrondissements helps explain its enduring popularity with visitors. There's something to marvel at, whoever you are and whichever part of the city you find yourself in. Undoubtedly a walking city, thankfully many of the best-loved attractions are within an easy stroll of each other. If you're coming to shop, the quintessentially Parisian shopping experience can be found at Galeries Lafayette and Printemps on Boulevard Haussmann. One of the most fun ways to experience Paris is by riding the Paris Metro. Its offbeat Art Nouveau architecture and sheer convenience come up trumps. Book a holiday in Paris as part of the life you love.
