The City of Light and Love
Paris is a city of iconic landmarks, fatal fashion, and fine cuisine. From the massive art museums to the city architecture to the people themselves, there is much to see in The City of Light.

Some of the premier art galleries and sculpture gardens in the world surround the Louvre, a museum offering such a vast collection—35,000 displays ranging from Roman to Oriental; the most famous being the Mona Lisa—that it’s impossible to see in a day.

Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower offer a glimpse into architecture history both ancient and modern. While rooftop views of the Eiffel Tower may be impressive, the city itself, lit up after dark and seen from the top of the Old Lady is more breathtaking than either of the iconic sights.

No visit to this fashion capital would be complete without a chance to “lick the windows,” as the French call window shopping. Travelers can tour the mall-sized department stores or head to Saint-Quen’s colossal weekend flea market.

From coffee to fine wine, from cheese to crepes, France takes its dinner selections as seriously as its truffles. Venues range from chandelier adorned affairs that must be booked weeks in advance, like La Fontaine, to lantern decorated bistros.

Once dinner is settled, the city of France kicks up the night scene along the river Seine, offering venues ranging from sophisticated to sleazy. Gentleman’s clubs with pole dancing hotties compete with ballet toting ballrooms. Bars offer traditional tunes and Karaoke, while clubs pump out everything from techno to jazz and everything in between.

For those seeking a more romantic interlude, France prides herself on an artistic theater and film industry, offering hundreds of performances and showing nightly across the city.

REVIEW
"If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a movable feast."
