Paris, the capital of France, has over 2 million inhabitants… 

… but it remains far from the top of the world’s most populated cities.

So, what makes Paris such a famous city? 

First of all, France is one of the world’s greatest powers, and Paris benefits from this position.

Paris is also known for its eventful history: the French Revolution, the Commune, May 68, etc.

Then, thousands of films, both French and foreign, were shot in the capital, spreading its image around the world.  

It is one of the most visited cities in the world, with millions of tourists every year.  

Paris has many cultural assets. It has more than 2,000 monuments, such as the Eiffel Tower, the Sacré-Cœur and Notre-Dame. 

The Louvre is one of the largest museums in the world, where you can see the Mona Lisa, by Leonardo da Vinci. 

The Champs-Élysées, leading to the Arc de Triomphe, is one of the most beautiful avenues in the world.

Paris, like the rest of France, is famous for its gastronomy, high-quality cuisine.

It’s also the ideal place to stroll through the streets and parks, enjoy the café terraces and appreciate the architecture and French ‘good living’.

It is romantic and Paris is often called ‘the city of lovers’!
