Fall in Love with the City of Love
Paris is the capital of France and also its largest city. It is one of the most populated metropolitan areas in the continent. Known to be the most romantic city in the world, this is the perfect place for you to have an adventurous, romantic escape.
Summer is the best season for you to visit this city if you are hoping for intimate and quite strolls around the city. This is because even though it is peak season, it is barely crowded on account of most Parisians having vacated the city for their holidays. Winter season can be cold but snow is uncommon. There is a plethora of indoor activities for you to enjoy. You need to make reservations for the hotels and restaurants in advance, though. For fashion lovers, winter and fall are the best time to plan their vacation on account of the Fashion Week. Spring is also a lovely time to be in Paris as you get to witness the city in its finest hour. You will even get cheap tickets to Paris and an opportunity to observe the city's local culture.
Flights to Paris land at the Charles De Gaulle Airport, the largest airport in France. It also ranks high in terms of business and aviation. Easyjet provides the best airfares. For bargain hunters, March is the best month to score cheap flights to Paris. BMI, Flybe and British Airways are other airlines offering cheap plane fares.
Paris has an amazing collection of opera houses. The largest of these are the Opéra Bastille and the Opéra Garnier. The former is known for a mixed repertoire of classic and modern operas while the latter is known more for classic operas and ballets. Opéra-Comique and Théâtre de la Ville are two other active and competing opera houses.
Theater owns a large niche in the culture of Paris. Bobino, Théâter Mogador, and the Théâter de la Gaîté-Montparnasse are few of the major theaters of the city which merit a visit. Some theaters of the city also function as concert halls. Édith Piaf, Maurice Chevalier, Georges Brassens and Charles Aznavour are some of the musical legends who gained popularity in such halls. Many of this city’s concert halls have been transformed into movie theaters.
Parisian cuisine is derived from the culinary expertise of its diverse population. Thus, you can say that the city owes it reputation of culinary finesse to its cultural diversity. The cuisine varies seasonally. Salad and fruit dishes are enjoyed in summers while game of all kinds is eaten in the hunting season. You can taste oysters with the arrival of spring.
The museums and galleries of the city are among its most coveted attractions. If you are a history buff you will definitely appreciate the city’s most prized museum, the Louvre. With more than 300,000 strikingly attractive works of art, including Leonardo da Vinci’s world famous Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo, the museum has more masterpieces than a single visit could do justice to.
