The French capital and its surrounding region are a feast for the senses, pleasing to the refined palette and creative eye with signature haute cuisine, opulent architecture, and world class works of art. Like a jewel in a golden crown, Paris is the heart of a region offering a bucolic contrast to the metropolitan movement of the capital. Punctuated by former vestiges of kingdom, the Ile de France remains a pastoral hideaway inhabited by quaint country villages and medieval abbeys intersected by rivers and flourishing woodlands, which once inspired the grand palaces and sprawling chateau estates of a bygone age. From its serene environs, Paris rises like a radiant beacon of light calling home generations of visionary genius. Cultured and cosmopolitan, classic and contemporary, the city is an inspiring plein-air museum where beauty can be appreciated from the widest of boulevards to the tiniest of lanes. Authentic and animated, within each arrondissement a unique history lives, kept vital by the steady rhythm of the Parisian spirit pushing resolutely into the beyond while holding tight to its cultural inheritance.
