ADD TO LIST
Situated on either side of the river Seine, Paris, the capital of France and that country’s largest city, is one of the most cherished and most visited cities in the world. An important settlement for over two thousand years, Paris today is one of the world’s leading business and cultural centres.  Its influence in politics, education, entertainment, media, fashion, science and - perhaps, above all - the arts all combine to make it one of the major global cities and one of the most popular tourist attractions on the planet. Furthermore, the city boasts  a wealth of iconic landmarks, world-famous institutions and popular parks and open spaces which add to its magical allure.

There is a host of reasons, all of them undeniable to those who know her, why Paris has come to be known affectionately as ’la ville lumière’ Paris is 900 km away from Berlin, 400 km from London, 1100 km from Rome and Madrid.

Travel Tips from people who've been to Paris
There's a side-entrance to the Louvre Museum named Port de Lions. It's located between the Pont du Carrousel and the Pont Royal in the southwing of the museum. If you don't want to wait for hours in line at the pyrmid, this is the way to be in the Louvre in 2 minutes.
Good tip?

Don't go out in clothese that you would go clubbing in here in the UK, as the Parisians were a lot more laid back with their dressing up and we got a little mauled when we went - this is a tip from Parisian when we had to hide in a night cafe form scary guys!

The Bateaux Mouches were such a fun way to get a tour of Paris. The boats are narrated and go right along the Seine River. Plus I love the way that sounds when you pronounce it. I can say it 10x. Bateaux Mouches. :)
