Video: A Day in Paris
Paris, the ‘City of Lights’, is one of the world’s truly great cities. The River Seine, lifeblood of the city, splits it neatly in two, flowing past the Ile de la Cité and the cathedral of Notre Dame. The history and culture can also be discovered throughout its distinctive districts. The village atmosphere of hilly Montmartre with its elegant landmark the Sacre Coeur; the Marais district and its winding streets that evoke medieval Paris; and the grand 19th century boulevards that dominate so much of the city.
Paris has so much to offer with its huge variety of heritage, architecture and culture, from the history of the Louvre Museum, to the ultra modern Opera de la Bastille; from Eiffel’s world famous Tower, to the Champs-Elysées headed by the Arc de Triomphe. All this, together with wonderful restaurants and some of the best shopping in the world make Paris an unmissable place to visit.
