All destinations > France > Paris



In the heart of Europe, Paris with its extraordinary wealth is the ideal destination to visit an inestimable heritage for quantity and variety. For those who love cultural tourism Paris has 180 museums from the Louvre to the Musée national de l 'Air et de l'Espace from the National Centre of Contemporary Art and Culture Georges Pompidou to the Musée du erotism in Pigalle.

Walking the rue is an authentic journey in the history and grandeur of the French capital: the Sorbonne is the first European university founded in the middle-ages, the Palace and Park of Versailles expresses well the power of one of the most influential monarchies of all the time, the splendour of the Napoleonic era encased in a visit to the Arc de Triomphe with its breathtaking landscape, Notre Dame and the many Gothic cathedrals where to play hide-and-seek with Quasimodo until you reach the Eiffel Tower, symbol of modernity and romance together.

The Seine is the heart of the city, with its banks to admire with the slowness of a bateau-mouche, maybe with a freshly baked pain au chocolat (in spite of the diet) and whistling "Le vie en rose".

A trip in the trip: in Montmartre hill, a stone's throw from the Sacré-Coeur, we immerse ourselves in the free and creative atmosphere in the many shops of '900 artists. We'll find the taste of a decadent retro in view of the sketches of the Impressionists and in the shows at the historic Moulin Rouge .

To feel like a Parisian: in the Belville will be easy to find a multi-ethnic character of the family of Daniel Pennac; from the Pont de Grenelle we can see the reduced copy of the Statue of Liberty donated by the U.S.; in Barbès we find a diverse multicultural market off the traditional tourist circuit vitality; in the Marais with Jews, Arabs and Asians and venue of the homosexual community with shopping and trendy night spots in Paris and finally the wonderful carpets and marble of the Great Mosque in Hispanic-Moorish style carrying us quickly to the East.

Do not miss: if you love the green, walk to the Jardin du Luxembourg, familiar nicknamed Luco and the Parc de la Villette, the largest park in Paris.
