About Paris

Paris is known around the world as the “capital of love,” and even if you don't understand the history of Paris at all, you certainly know about such cultural symbols as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum, the Arc de Triomphe, and Notre-Dame de Paris. In addition to visiting famous tourist sites, as a cultural capital, you can also explore the art museums of Paris, stroll through the "left bank” of art and literature, look for street art in Montmartre, and visit the homes of famous personages. Of course, how could you come to Paris without trying authentic French cuisine! Leaving aside the top Michelin three-starred restaurants in Paris, the streets and alleys are all bursting with a variety of French restaurants. Paris is a city that will meet all your heart’s desires!

The Louvre is a “super museum” that stands among the British Museum in London and the Met in New York as one of the three greatest art museums in the world. The Louvre has an enormous collection of more than 400,000 pieces and exhibits that span a period of more than 1,500 years. There are collections of works from the ancient Greek, Roman and Egyptian civilizations, including da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa”, Antioch’s “Venus de Milo”, and “Winged Victory of Samothrace”, dubbed the “three treasures” of the museum.

Observation Deck
The Eiffel Tower is one of Paris’ most quintessential landmarks. If the Notre Dame is a symbol of ancient Paris, then the Eiffel Tower is the symbol of modern Paris. The tower was originally built as the entrance to the 1889 World’s Fair and commemorate the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution, making it an important cultural symbol of France. From atop the wrought iron tower lookout, visitors get an astounding panoramic view of the Paris cityscape.

Church
[Editor's Note: On 15 April, 2019, a fire destroyed large portions of Notre-Dame. The much of the historic wooden roof and the cathedral spire were lost. As of this edit, the extent of the damage was still being assessed. The cathedral will be forced to close for the foreseeable future.] Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris, known simply as Notre-Dame, is often described as the very heart of Paris. Construction work began in 1160 and was largely completed in 1260, through renovations and modifications occurred often over the following centuries. It is a stunning example of French Gothic architecture and particularly well-known for its many gargoyles and flying buttresses. The cathedral’s stained glasses windows date from the 13th century, making them essentially priceless. Notre-Dame has played an important role throughout French history. In 1802, Napoleon Bonaparte was crowned Emperor of France here. Located on the Ile de la Cite in the Sine River, Notre-Dame is a true masterpiece.

Why Walking is the Best Way to See a City? If you truly want to immerse yourself in a new place, you need to spend time simply being there. This means being among the people, trying new foods, and walking a mile in the locals' shoes. Many places are focusing more on pedestrians, creating new and innovative ways for them to get around, including the implementation of car-free zones to cut down on traffic. If you prefer pedestrian life, but still want to travel and see the world, here's your guide to some most walkable cities in the world.

Paris Weather
From March to May is spring in Paris, with its flowers in full bloom and abounding in romantic vibes. The weather turns warmer and is not humid during the summer which lasts from June to August. This is also the peak tourist season. Come July and August, the river banks would be overlaid with sand and resembling a beach. July also happens to be the shopping season whereby every shopping area would be giving huge discounts on their merchandise. The weather starts to turn colder during the autumn from September to November so do remember to bring some warmer clothing. Winter in Paris is really cold, and there is a big temperature difference between indoors and outdoors; you must bring winter garb. You could soak in the atmosphere at the many fairs and events prior to Christmas.
