Paris is the capital of France, and is the major center for art, fashion, gastronomy, and culture.
Some of the most memorable things to do in Paris include visiting the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe and Champs-Elysée. During the evening, experiencing one of the legendary Moulin Rouge cabaret shows, strolling through some of the most picturesque neighborhoods, like Montmartre, or climbing the Montparnasse Tower are a must.
You can not visit Paris and not discover the parisian food such as the croissant, baguette, snails, macarons, jambon beurre, steak tartare, cheese, onion soup, quiche, duck confit… etc. There is so much choice but there is never a bad choice.
