Today, our subject is one of the world’s most vibrant and appealing cities, the French capital of Paris.
With over 2 million inhabitants within the city limits and nearly 12 million in the metropolitan region, Paris is one of the largest urban centres in the European Union. Founded in the 3rd Century BCE and later conquered by the Roman Empire, Paris has served as the main city of the French nation since before it was a nation. With preserved history stretching back to the Middle Ages and including magnificent public buildings from France’s golden age in the 1700s as well as later and more modern highlights, Paris is a sumptuous visual delight for architecture aficionados as well as for aesthetes and romantics of all kinds.
Concentrated around the Seine River, the old city of Paris is divided into 20 arrondissements or administrative districts, eight of which are centred on the Île de la Cité, upon which the famous landmark of Notre Dame Cathedral (dating to the 12th Century) stands. Other major landmarks include the Musée de Louvre, one of the world’s finest art museums and a former royal palace, the monumental Arc de Triomphe at the end of fashionable boulevard of the Champs-Élysées, and the iconic, elegant steel-framed Eiffel Tower. Many more museums and historic sites are spread throughout the 20 arrondissements and beyond, the most notable being the magnificent and opulent former royal Palace of Versailles on the city’s outskirts.
But unlike almost any other major city on the planet, Paris itself is more of an attraction than its main attractions. With its walking-friendly boulevards, casual cafes, manicured green spaces, Belle Époque architecture, and lively street life, Paris is a consistent delight for the visitor and local alike. A favourite destination for lovers and romantics, Paris’ world-renowned cuisine, exclusive boutique shopping, and leading-edge fashion make it a leading destination for honeymoons and couple getaways. It’s also a major business and financial centre in the European Union, centred on La Défense business district to the west of central Paris.
