Eiffel Tower

Paris: the City of Lights, the City for Lovers. France's capital and largest city has a reputation as one of the most romantic cities in the world, attracting more than 30 million visitors each year. Just the name “Paris” conjures images of wide, tree-lined boulevards, outdoor cafés, and wrought-iron balconies that overlook such iconic landmarks as the Eiffel Tower.

Paris is located on the River Seine and is divided into 20 arrondissements, or districts, and includes two islands: the Île de la Cité and the Île Saint-Louis. Most of Paris's major attractions can be found within the city center, including Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower, and the Musée du Louvre, to name a few.

The Eiffel Tower is unquestionably Paris's most popular attraction. What was originally meant to be a temporary fixture built for the Universal Exhibition of 1889 has since become the symbol of Paris.

Paris is home to some of the world's most impressive museums and galleries. The Louvre is perhaps one of the world's most renowned art museums. Most people visit the Louvre to admire the Mona Lisa, but the Louvre also contains a vast collection of Oriental, Egyptian, Greek, Etruscan, and African art, among others – from paintings to sculptures to ancient artifacts. The museum's exterior is just as grand as its interior with its famous modern glass pyramids contrasting with the building's traditional Renaissance architecture.
