Paris travel guide
Travel tips

Paris is the capital of France. Paris is located on the north-bending arc of the river Seine in Northern France and includes two islands, Ile St-Louis and Ile de la Cite. This major global city is one of the most populated metropolitan areas in Europe and is one of the world’s leading business and cultural centers. This “City of Light” influences politics, education, entertainment, media, fashion, science, and arts.
One of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, Paris contains iconic landmarks, world famous institutions and monuments, popular parks, and renowned cuisine. With a pleasant oceanic climate, Paris rarely experiences extremely high or low temperatures, boasting warm pleasant summers and winters temperatures that rarely fall below freezing.
Paris’ museums and monuments are key attractions, as well as its cathedrals. The Louvre is one of the largest museums in the world, as well as one of the most visited, housing such works as the Mona Lisa. It is a central landmark of Paris and features nearly 35,000 objects from pre-history to 19th century. It is also a historic monument. Of the three most famous landmarks in Paris, the 12th century cathedral Notre Dame de Paris, located on the Ile de la Cite, is considered one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture in France and Europe. Annually, this Roman Catholic cathedral receives 12 million visitors. Another famous landmark is the Basilique du Sacre-Coeur, located on the summit of butte Montmartre, the highest point in Paris. This cathedral has been featured in numerous movies, music videos, and has been mentioned in various songs.
Another enduring symbol of Paris is the Eiffel Tower, a global icon and one of the most recognizable structures in the world. Standing at 324 meters tall with three levels, the Eiffel Tower is the tallest building in Paris with breathtaking views. The first and second levels feature restaurants. The third most famous Parisian landmark is the Napoleonic Arc de Triomphe, built to honour those who have fought for France through the decades. On the inside and top of the arc is listed all the generals and wars fought, and underneath is the tomb of the unknown soldier of WWI.
Paris truly offers something for everyone. For family fun, Disneyland Paris is a prime tourist attraction. For the history buff, Paris is a city steeped in rich history. The Invalides museum is the burial place for many great French soldiers, including Napoleon. For the “shopaholic”, Paris is a shoppers’ paradise! The Champs-Elysees is a major shopping street in Paris. Place Vendome is famous for its jewelers and famous fashion designer salons. The Forum des Halles is the central market of Paris. Avenue Montaigne is home to luxury brand labels such as Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Dior, and Givenchy. Paris is famous for culinary finesse and for those who appreciate fine cuisine, a visit to Montmartre, a historic area on the Butte, is a must with its many cafés. The Quartier Latin is known for its lively bistros.
There are innumerable opportunities for memorable and lasting memories in this magical city. Rich in culture, performing arts, and entertainment, as well as offering many sporting venues and beautiful parks and gardens, you will want to visit again and again.
