Paris is in flux culturally and socially, it lures travelers for the same reasons as always. The Tour Eiffel, Notre-Dame, the Arc de Triomphe, Sacré-Coeur, and all those atmospheric cafes, as well as daringly futuristic projects such as the Grande Arche de La Défense, the Cité des Sciences et the Industrie, the Cité de la Musique, and the Bibliothèque François-Mitterrand. The beauty of Paris is still overwhelming, especially at night, when it truly is the City of Light.

Paris The City of Lights!
Paris remains one of the most visited places on the planet. Travelers, of course, come to revisit Paris and the glorious past, as reflected in its art and architecture, but they are also intrigued by this City of Lights with the cutting-edge style, cuisine, and fashion.
Ernest Hemingway called the many splendors of Paris a - moveable feast- and wrote,"There is never any ending to Paris, and the memory of each person who has lived in it differs from that of any other." It is this aura of personal discovery that has always been the most compelling reason to come to Paris. Perhaps that is why France has been called le deuxième pays de tout le monde (everybody's second country).
