Paris

Paris must have one of the best brand images of any capital in the world. A city of outstanding architectural beauty, a lover’s paradise, a temple to gastronomy…..the city floats majestically in Europe, an island of excellence and refinement. You can explore the timeless familiarity of this cosmopolitan city year round.

And all of that is indeed to be found there.  Its monuments astound – Notre Dame, Les Invalides and the Louvre separated by wide boulevards that cut the city and offer tantalising grand vistas at every corner.  And as much as it’s majestic, Paris is also a city of local life in which districts such as the Left Bank, the Marais, Montmartre and many others offer a still-thriving community living around local markets, bustling cafés where philosophical debates rage even over breakfast, and boutique clothes shops selling young designers’ clothes are to be found at every turn.

One of Paris’ attractions is that it is a comparatively small capital city and mercifully built almost entirely on flat ground.  This makes it an eminently walkable city and you should not shy from wandering the length of the centre at leisure, perhaps pausing for a romantic moment at the Pont des Arts, after all, Paris is the city of love!
