Paris is situated in the northern part of France. The city sprawls over both banks of the Seine River and on two islands: the Îles Saint Louis and the larger Île de la Cité. The historical city center is built around the Seine, and it has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1991. For a glimpse into the oldest part of Paris, take a stroll along the Seine and around the 1st and 4th districts to admire iconic landmarks, such as the Cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris or the Louvre Museum, among others. But leave some space and time for the rest of the city's districts, as each of Paris' 20 arrondissements possesses incredible treasures to discover.

Getting to Know Paris, One Museum at a Time

Suggestion to explore on your own

With a plethora of superb art collections, some of the world's most recognizable masterpieces, and several museums where rich history and impressive architecture reign, it's no wonder that Paris is often called the City of Art. From the most-visited museum in the world, the Louvre, to museums dedicated to famous artists like Picasso and Rodin, to collections showcasing the life and work of fashion icons, such as Yves Saint Laurent, Paris has it all. Apart from the precious exhibits, it often happens that the museum buildings themselves are sights to behold for their architecture alone. The Beaux-Arts railway station that houses the exquisite Musée d'Orsay and the high-tech structure of Centre Pompidou are only two of the French capital's architectural wonders. You'll find more details of the many museums you could visit in your Guest Page, once your trip is booked.

The largest city in eastern France, Strasbourg is the official seat of the European Parliament. It also hosts the European Council, among other EU institutions. Strasbourg is situated in Alsace, a cultural region in eastern France, just a stone's throw from the country's borders with Germany. Since the 17th century, the Germans and the French took turns ruling the region, which resulted in an unparalleled blend of cultures. German traits remain in the more traditional aspects of life, such as cuisine and architecture, whereas modern institutions are dominated by French culture. Alsace is famous for its quaint villages and stunning architecture, but also for the wine, beer, and fruit liquors produced there.
