In fact, it is probably easier to list people who haven’t fallen in love with the City of Light than those who have. There is undoubtedly something special at work in France’s capital city, but just what that is can be hard to define. It has, as we say in France, a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ about it. Its magic is hard to pin down, and yet obvious for anyone who has ever spent time here. As Thomas Jefferson once said, “A walk about Paris will provide lessons in history, beauty, and the point of life.”
For many, Paris is a city as chic and forward thinking as any other in the world, a fashion capital that has been home to some of the most revolutionary and radical ideas in human history. For others, it is a place of ancient churches and historic landmarks where Templar knights and medieval kings once held court. From Paris, armies have departed to conquer the world, and to Paris, the conquering armies of other countries have been drawn like moths to a flame. It is a city where modernity sits mere feet above ancient catacombs, where the Parisians of yester-year lay pilled in vast tunnels as if to constantly remind the city of its origins. It is a city of people, and its famed café lined boulevards offer some of the best people watching in the world.
Paris is a city were art and history are around every corner. With over 130 museums , there is something here to interest all visitors. So whether you are planning on spending your time within the majesty of The Louvre or The Musée d’Orsay being wowed by some of the most beautiful art in the world, revelling in military history at Les Invalides whilst visiting the Tomb of Napoleon, or fancy exploring the world’s oldest science museum at the Musée des Arts et Métiers, you will not be disappointed.
The draws of Paris do not end at the city limits, and many seasoned Parisians will tell you that one of the greatest wonders in all of France lay within easy reach. Just 11 miles from the city, visitors will find the breath-taking beauty of The Palace of Versailles. Starting life as a royal hunting lodge in the early 17th century, Versailles grew to become one of the most important and beautiful palaces in the world. Walking the halls and gardens today feels like stepping back in time to the world of Marie Antoinette and the decadence of the 18th Century. A chance to visit is not to be missed and allows you to walk the very halls where both the royalty and revolutionaries once stood.
So, whether you are planning to spend all your time in the city, or use it as a base to explore further afield (both Disneyland and the D-Day beaches are within easy reach), you will not be disappointed. From the lofty heights of The Eiffel Tower to the atmospheric, narrow streets of The Latin Quarter, we are sure you will agree that The City of Light is a wonder to behold. To quote Audrey Hepburn, “Paris is always a good idea”.
