‘There are only two places in the world where we live happy; at home and in Paris.’
Paris, the city and capital of France is one that has been drawing visitors for centuries. From its wonderful historic monuments to its exceptional cuisine, it is a destination unlike any other. Paris is as much for the gourmand, as for the art lover; for the architect, the historian, the glamorous vixens who wants designer shops and cocktails at dawn and for the down-and-out writers. It is the city where everything is possible at any time.
For centuries, Paris has been one of the world’s most important and attractive cities. It is appreciated for the opportunities it offers for business and commerce, for study, for culture, and for entertainment; its gastronomy, haute couture, painting, literature, and intellectual community especially enjoy an enviable reputation.
The cloud-piercing, wrought-iron Eiffel Tower, broad Arc de Triomphe guarding the glamorous avenue des Champs-Elysees, flying buttressed Notre Dame cathedral, lamp-lit bridges spanning the Seine and art nouveau cafes are enduring Parisian ensembles.
The word ‘Parisian’ is synonymous with style, and fashion shopping is the city’s forte. Paris remains at the forefront of international trends, and browsing emerging and established designer boutiques and flagship haute couture houses is a quintessential part of any visit.
Paris is one of the world’s great art repositories, harboring treasures from antiquity onwards- Renoir, Rodin, Picasso, Monet, and Van Gogh are few of the masters who have lived and worked here over the years.
France’s reputation for its cuisine precedes it, and whether you seek a cozy neighborhood bistro or a triple-Michelin-starred temple to gastronomy, you’ll find that every establishment prides itself on exquisite preparation and presentation of quality produce, invariably served with wine.
The weather in Paris is generally quite mild for most of the year, with a reasonable amount of rain throughout the year. Paris is the capital you should definitely have in your itinerary when you are in France. There are direct flights available from India to Paris and the currency used is Euro (1 Euro= 82 INR). Wander in and out of museums, cafes, farmers markets, beautiful gardens and enjoy the romance of the city.
