Paris Capital City Of France Full Of Romance

Paris is in the Ile De France region of France and is an international capital for art, fashion, style and with the romance that Paris perceives, it is the number one destination for UK tourists and with over 30 million travellers per year from around the world.

Paris entertainment has always been at the forefront of the world in terms of quality and variety and from film, dance, opera, jazz, concerts, ballet, rock festivals and cabaret, there is always some form of entertainment on offer to suit all tastes, no matter what the time of year you decide to visit this vibrant and cultural city.

There are two opera houses in Paris, the Opera Bastille and the Palais Garnier that hosts the Opera National de Paris.  There are also many different rock venues in Paris that play host to a large number of international performers and Paris is also popular for its many dance clubs, nightclubs, and cabaret shows such as the Moulin Rouge, which has become famous throughout the world for its can-can, plus a multitude of different festivals that are held in Paris every year.

Of course, there are the usual monuments and attractions which we all go and see when visiting Paris, such as the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Notre Dame Cathedral, walking along the Avenue de Champs-Elysees with all its glitz and glamour.

Also you can find some more recent landmarks that attract millions of visitors each year to Paris, such as La Grande Arche in the business district of La Defense or The Center Nationale d'Art et de Culture Georges Pompidou, also known simply as the Beaubourg or the Pompidou Centre.

Another attraction are the Catacombs of Paris, which are a famous burial place with its network of subterranean tunnels located underneath Paris and you can go on an official tour through the old quarries.

The banks of the River Seine in Paris will offer visitors an unforgettable experience seeing the sights from a completely different perspective, while cruising in a boat and perhaps sampling the French cuisine onboard, or at one of the many restaurants in Paris along the way.

However, for those of us who would like to get away from it all, the Ile de France region becomes an ideal place, offering a multitude of nature, history, art and culture, but all within a short distance from Paris centre and the notorious periphery.

Also, you are able to discover more than 500km of navigable waterways, as well as many more kilometres of footpaths and historic sites along its beautiful rivers and canals, and discover rich picturesque countryside and forests boasting three National Parks and four National Forests along with numerous chateaux, that allow you to get away from it all and enjoy the natural beauty of France along with the slow pace of French country life.

And although Paris still tends to have that allure for a romantic retreat, there is also an enormous amount to do for children of all ages and the adults! like Disneyland Paris with all of its magic is obviously one of those destinations, along with Parc Asterix, but there are also some great modern museums that provide interaction, making learning fun.

So, from historic towns, to the centre of Paris, back to the forests and national parks, to amusements or glitz and glamour, Paris has something for everyone to enjoy, but make sure that you allocate enough time to experience this incredible region of France.
