Paris is a million different things to a million different people. Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower – at sunrise, at sunset, at night – have stood as testaments to mankind's love and imagination. There is no man on Earth who can resist the charm of Paris! There are 181 places in the city where you can get an espresso for €1 and if you were to spend each day of your life in Paris visiting a different open terrace (of a bar, cafe, or restaurant), then it would take you 29.8 years to see them all as there are 9,057 of them. Prepare to roam the 6,100 streets of the most romantic city on the planet and see the renowned landmarks and sights. The world-famous Louvre is one of the largest palaces in the world and, as a former residence of the kings of France, is one of the most illustrious places in Europe. It exemplifies traditional French architecture and houses a magnificent collection of ancient and Western art. Originating as a hunting lodge owned by King Louis XIII, the Palace of Versailles became the seat of power for the Kingdom of France in 1682, when his son, Louis XIV (also known as “The Sun King”) moved his court there from the Louvre Palace in nearby Paris. Originally intended to be a place where the king could identify dangerous cabals more easily and keep them at bay, Louis had long since been working on building the palace into one of the largest in the world.

In 1664, he held a grand cotillion ball entitled the “Pleasures of the Enchanted Isle” to celebrate his first great series of improvements to his father’s woodland getaway, with the renowned playwright Moliere organizing the festivities. After the Treaty of Nijmegen was signed, ending France’s 6-year war with the Netherlands, France became one of the greatest powers in Europe, and Louis figured his realm needed a larger symbol of its political stature. Although the resulting structure became a wonder unto itself, the gardens of Versailles, designed by architect Louis Le Vau, painter Charles Le Brun, and landscape architect Andre le Notre, also became the marvel of Europe, with beautiful fountains, amazing statues, and an unrivaled selection of the best greenery nature had to offer. Everyone should see Paris at least once, and experience the atmosphere where even the pigeons are dancing, kissing, going in circles, mounting each other as Paris is the city of love, even for the birds!
