Paris

Presentation

Paris, France’s eternal capital, is a city full of surprises, with a thousand different faces to satisfy each and every one of your desires. If it is unquestionably one of the most beautiful cities in the world, its appeal is based first and foremost on its exceptional architectural and cultural heritage – a living heritage, which is constantly being modernised and enriched. Paris is also the capital of gastronomy, fashion and shopping: a city where there’s always something happening… And, since it attaches a lot of importance to quality of life and sustainable development, it forms a particularly pleasant environment for its inhabitants and visitors. Through its innovation, audacity and vibrancy, Paris has put its best foot forward into the 21st century.
