Few cities can boast such a fine blend of the modern and the classic. The French capital is dripping with culture, from the legacy of the many great artists that have called it home, to the magnificent 19th century architecture, to the world-class museums. Paris is also a modern cosmopolitan city. More than 12 million people call the Paris area home, making it by some counts the largest city in Europe. It has all the amenities of a modern city: a metro, unbeatable nightlife, good infrastructure. The City of Lights is the most romantic city in the world, a central ingredient in many modern day love stories. If there’s one must visit city, this is it. Paris is the world’s most popular tourist destination, but even if you live here you’ll never be able to see it all.
