Famously known as the City of Lights because of the beautifully dated gas lamps garrisoned around the city. Taking in its beautiful Belle Époque architecture, sprawling boulevards, alluring fashion scene, quaint cafés and bakeries, and arguably the best fine dining in the world are just a few of the ways you can fall in love with Paris.
The City of Lights: What To See and Do in Paris
When speaking about Paris, cultural heritage sites such as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, and Notre Dame come to mind. Overall, Paris is best explored on foot and especially at sunset, or with the well-connected Métropolitain, notable for its famous art deco station architecture. For museums, the Musee d’Orsay is an absolute must, with its host of impressionist paintings, both permanent as well as traveling collections. As an insider tip, a visit to Paris is not complete without going on a slow evening stroll through Montmartre, a section of town home to an old (and still active) Parisian art colony as well as the beautiful Sacré Coeur basilica. No matter where your apartment in Paris is located, you will be surrounded by Europe’s strongest, most well-known cultural backdrop, and close to world-class convention centers and meeting places.More
