Where Is Paris, France?

Located in the north of France, the country’s capital city of Paris sits on the northern arc of the Seine, between the city’s natural islands of Île Saint-Louis and Île de la Cité. The mouth of the river stems from the English Channel, about 375 kilometers downstream from the city, which is spread widely on both banks of the river.

What Is Paris, France Known For?

Famously known as the most romantic city of the world, Paris has been one of Europe’s most famous and popular cities. It has been regarded as a major commercial and cultural hub since the 17th century. Paris, France’s capital city, is the epicentre of magnificent architecture, a beacon of trend-setting fashion and home to a flourishing culinary scene. For centuries, everyone, from literary geniuses to runway stomping supermodels, have flooded Paris to sample the city’s legendarily seductive “je ne sais quoi” charms for themselves. Boutiques, bars, brasseries and boulangeries line the streets of this city, in eclectic and quaint corners to super-cool arrondissements. Whether you splash the cash on the Champs-Élysées, join the many selfie stick wielding tourists in the Louvre, or take a trip up the la Tour Eiffel, there is plenty to do and much to see when in the City of Lights.

Popular Attractions in Paris

  • Eiffel Tower: A trip to Paris is not a trip to Paris without seeing the iron-wrought Eiffel Tower in all its glory. An iconic figure on postcards and widely synonymous with the city itself, the Eiffel Tower is one of the city’s most famous landmarks. Climb to the top and marvel at the spectacular vistas of the beautiful and majestic city sprawled about before you. For an even more wonderful experience, visit the world renowned landmark at night to see the Jewel of Paris lit up in a thousand sparkling lights.
  • Louvre Museum: Famously known as the world’s largest art museum, the Louvre Museum is a masterpiece itself from the get-go. As soon as you step into the la Pyramide du Louvre, the imposing glass and steel entrance, you will find yourself surrounded by some of the most spectacular works of art that the world has ever seen. From world class masterpieces to lesser known showpieces, the Louvre Museum is a tribute to art and the geniuses that contributed to it. Whether you’re brave enough to be temporarily blinded by the lights of the smartphone cameras that rapidly go off in front of the Mona Lisa, or fight through the crowds to marvel at the Venus de Milo, there are more than plenty of works of art that are definitely worth the injuries.
  • Champs-Élysées: Whether you shop ‘til you drop, eat until your stomach bursts, or spectate at an aesthetically stunning show, the Champs-Élysées is all about indulgence and excess. In the same spirit of Marie Antoinette, Champs-Élysées is plentiful with hedonistic pleasure; with high-end designer boutiques, sophisticated Michelin-star restaurants, and Moulin Rouge style theaters. Often described as “the most beautiful avenue in the world,” the picturesque tree-lined street is also plentiful with magnificent iconic architecture, with the Arc de Triomphe standing guard at one end of the street and the Luxor Obelisk of the Place de la Concorde at the other. French for the Elysian Fields, the Champs-Élysées is just as heavenly as the name suggests.

Popular Destinations Near Paris

  • Versailles: A place that is interconnected with the hedonistic tales of the French Revolution, Versailles is a place that is burgeoning with sublime beauty, affluent indulgence, and regal splendor. Home of the eponymous gardens and World War I treaty, Versailles occupies a cemented place within history. Wander around this aesthetically sublime city, gaze at your reflection in the ornate Hall of Mirrors, and marvel at the details of the spectacular baroque architecture that is ever present within the city. A refreshing retreat away from the hustle and bustle of Paris, Versailles provides not only placid tranquility, but also a glimpse into a historic world that is abundant with magnificent sumptuousness.
  • Provins: A two-hour drive away from Paris, visitors can come across a locale that offers a step back in time. A fully and meticulously preserved medieval town, Provins seeps history from every single pore. The town is abundant with storybook beauty that is common with other quaint and pretty French towns, however what Provins offers are details that cannot be found anywhere else. Retrace the steps of Joan of Arc in the Eglise Saint-Quiriace Basilica where she attended mass, and climb the treacherous La Tour César, a 12th century watchtower that provides stunning panoramic views of the French countryside. Whether you choose to navigate the labyrinthine maze of medieval tunnels to soak up its mysterious history, or the equally maze-like Christmas market to absorb its festive spirit, a trip to Provins makes the perfect day trip from Paris.

Best Neighborhoods in Paris

  • Elysées: Running through the heart of this super-chic neighborhood is the most famous street in the world, Avenue des Champs Elysées, where the opportunities to shop until you go broke and eat until you burst are abundant.

Whether you breeze through the boutiques or sample sugary treats like a modern-day Marie Antoinette, you’ll find it all here in Elysées.
  • Luxembourg: Cobbled stones streets and Café de Flore, the sixième arrondissement is the very embodiment of brains and beauty. Situated on the left bank of the River Seine, Luxembourg is the home of world-famous educational institutions, elegant eateries, and the oldest church in Paris, Saint-Germain-des-Prés. As sidewalk booksellers sell vintage titles on the banks of the river, deep within the historic district are lanes that seep with intellectual vigor, prestigious history and meticulously crafted architecture. As the birthplace of café culture and revolutionary intellectualism, Luxembourg is the centuries-old stomping ground of free-thinking bohemia and trailblazing intelligentsia. One of the most fashionable and affluent districts of Le Paris, the internationally renowned cityscape of Luxembourg establishes the arrondissement as an absolute must-see, when one is in the City of Lights.
