Some would say that the words "Paris" and "Culture" are synonymous. And some might even add a third word: "Style". Paris’s contributions to Western culture have been formidable for centuries, evident through numerous ways : architecture, cuisine, decorative arts, diplomacy, drama, fashion, language, literature, music, painting, politics, and sculpture. In many ways, Paris defines to the world what it means to be French.

Explore Paris and discover the Historic wealth, French way of life, and all the other treasures of this exciting, voluptuous and romantic city.
