Paris

Paris is today one of the world’s leading business and cultural centres, and its influence in politics, education, entertainment, media, fashion, science and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the world’s major global cities. It is also the number one travel destinations on everybody’s list, a city all should see once in a lifetime.

Paris, also known as The City of Lights, has everything a traveller could possibly wish for. Three of the most famous landmarks in the world are here: the Cathedral Notre Dame de Paris, the Eiffel Tower, and the Arc de Triomphe. There are hundreds of museums in the city, including of course the Louvre, one of the most impressive and well known museums in the world.
