Welcome to Paris ● FRANCE

Paris is a majestic capital city with rich heritage and contemporary feel. In addition to major landmark sites like the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower, which each year attract millions of visitors, the capital has other treasures such as fountains, bridges, vineyards and brasseries that are also an important part of its identity. Heritage is also about modern architecture and its connection with today’s culture, an example of which is the CentQuatre, a new arts centre housed in the buildings of the former municipal funeral services. And not to be missed are the numerous heritage events throughout the year, notably the “Journées européenes du patrimoine”(European Heritage Days), when the public can visit places that are usually closed to the public.
