Paris is the capital and most popolous city of France. Situated on the Seine River, in the north of the country, it is in the centre of the Ile-de-France region, also known as the région parisienne, “Paris Region”.
Paris is a dream destination for many and that also comes thru for most of us when about 15 to 20 million visitors come here each year. Paris is always top ten when it comes to how many tourist that visit.
This was my third time to Paris, the first time was in 2003 alone, the second in 2004 with a friend and now with my girlfriend. Well, as its now 2015 its 11 years since my last visit and it was about time again. Paris has always something for the visitor/traveler, art, museums, sights, monuments, history, gastronomic experiences, pastrys, wine/champagne, shopping and activitys such as daytours, bicycle rentals, boattrips etc.
Places in Paris have always inspired musicians and singers, writers, poets and painters. Paris is also one of the biggest citys in the world for art, this attracts huge numbers of artists and bohems. Fashion is another big trade here in Paris with many of the biggest brands/labels coming from here, there are also the Paris fashion week once a year.
