The Essential

Paris is first and foremost its famous sights - the Seine, the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre Pyramid - which are recognised across the globe. The city's layout and its historical monuments tell the story of France and its cultural development.

In short, Paris is a bustling capital city, where there's always something happening, whatever time of day or year you visit.
