Overview

Paris, the City of Light, is one of the world's most magical cities, a byword for romance, glamour and style. Its landmarks - the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, L’Opéra de la Bastille, Notre Dame Cathedral - are world famous. 

Its 20 arrondissements spiral out from the middle of the city on the right bank of the River Seine, each one with its own personality. La Cite, part of the 1st District, is the historic heart of Paris, home to the cathedral and the Sainte Chappelle. The Latin Quarter is the traditional student quarter, centred on the Sorbonne and Panthéon, a district of cheap restaurants and charming old streets. Pigalle and Montmartre, the ninth and 18th arondissements, are where Paris parties. Le Marais is the Jewish quarter and the 13th district, Chinatown, is where Paris's large Chinese, Vietnamese and Cambodian communities live and trade. 

Paris's sweeping boulevards, public squares, fine palaces, old townhouses, little market streets and hidden courtyards contain a wealth of attractions with more than enough to occupy tourists who have landed on cheap flights to Paris.
