5 reasons to visit Paris

The People
The French have style, suave and an ego like few nation’s in the world. They don’t apologise for enjoying life. After a few days mixing with the beautifully dressed people wandering the pâtisseries of Montmartre, chatting amongst the locals at the markets of Le Marais, soaking up the sun by the Seine, or sitting at a street side café sipping café au lait, you won’t be able to imagine life any other way

The Romance
The romance of Paris can be felt even before you step off the plane at Charles De Gaulle Airport. Pop culture has filled us with the notion that anything is possible when it comes to love in this magical city, and a visit will leave you enchanted. Steal a kiss and make a wish for eternal love under the Pont-Marie ( “bridge of lovers”), snuggle by the Seine, or make the ultimate gesture with a marriage proposal atop the Eiffel Tower

The Possibilities
This city is made for walking and the opportunities to experience the best life has to offer are endless – uncover food and antique markets, empty the wallet with brand name and luxury shopping, take in culture with historical baroque buildings and museum treasures, indulge in fine food and wine, the list goes on and on. Walk over a bridge or down a path and you’ll never know what gem you’ll stumble across next.

The Eiffel Tower
Despite initial uproar when work started on this commemorative tower in 1887, it has gone on to become one of the world’s most visited landmarks and the featured icon of the Paris skyline. Whether you admire it from afar, lay in the park below and watch the clouds (and life) pass by, or take in the magical view (and a proposal?) from the top levels of this 324m structure, a trip to Paris is not complete till you gaze upon the Eiffel Tower

The Art
Few cities in the world have the depth of historical & modern artwork housed in the museums of Paris. Musée du Louvre, the world’s most famous museum, is home to the world’s most famous painting, Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. The Musée d’Orsay’s impressionist & post-impressionist paintings, including Monet’s water lilies, can’t be missed, and the Centre Pompidou is a must for modern and contemporary art lovers
