Welcome to the most romantic city on earth. Toeing the line between the classical and contemporary, Paris remains, at its core, the city of love. With a concentrated city centre, France’s capital is ideal for visitors on foot, with even the briefest of Paris tours unveiling famous landmarks, chic cafés, lively boulevards and elegant boutiques on every corner. The home of baguettes and croissants, Paris knows its food. Traditional street bistros and modern restaurants keep the city on top of its gastronomy game, while age-old Paris attractions like the Louvre, Centre Pompidou and the Musée d'Orsay mean Paris holds its own as one of Europe’s leading cities for art and culture.
