The sights

The Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Arc de Triomphe. See everything you’ve seen on the TV, magazines, or online. Be there yourself and make your own memories.


Visit the Louvre, take in the architecture around you. See the Mona Lisa, stop by the Picasso Museum, or even take a look at the sculptures in the street. There is an abundance of works of art from different periods and styles.


Learn about the landmarks and art you’ve just seen, apply your knowledge and try to see what Paris was like in any time period. Visit some of the museums in Paris: Musee d’Orsay, Centre Georges Pompidou, Petit Palais, among many more.


French cuisine is truly something special. The French have perfected the art of a flaky croissant in their bakeries, are experts in the field of wine, and have many other specialty delicacies such as snails, frogs, and fois gras. The French see the food they eat as examples of art, cook with love, and truly appreciate it.


As a metropolitan center, Paris has many shops from all over the world. However, Paris is undoubtedly one of the fashion capitals around the world, the home of “haute couture”. Stroll down the Rue de Rivoli to see big names, Avenue des Champs Elysees, or Boulevard Haussmann among many. Or, check out a flea market like Saint-Ouen, or a food market such as Le Marche des Enfants Rouges in Marais.

C’est la vie!

Their way of life is different there. Quality over quantity, take your time to appreciate what’s around you. Walk along the Seine, take in the views from Montparnasse or Montmartre, delve into the detail in the architecture of the buildings around you. Have a sit-down lunch, talk to your friends, and take the time to relax as the French do.

Ici C’est Paris!

The City of Light, it is also a City of Love. There is no other similar city in the world, where a hub of history, culture, art, style, and food come together; there is something for everyone’s interests. You will find nothing short of an enriching experience if you choose to step foot into this wondrous city.
