Often called the City of Lights, Paris is an incredible place to see. Growing from the small village that it used to be on the Seine River into the metropolis that it is today, Paris is the largest city in France and one of the most influential in the world. As the center stage for the French Revolution it became a center of science, arts, fashion, and commerce. In fact, the Paris region accounts for nearly 30% of France’s GDP and it is one of the wealthiest regions in Europe. It is also well known for its museums like the Louvre and Musée d’Orsay. Of course, no visit to Paris would be complete without taking a close up look at the Eiffel Tower, possibly the most famous French icon in the world. Given that France is by far the most visited country on Earth, it would make sense that Paris also sees its fair share of visitors and tourists. Seeming to go on for miles into the horizon, there are truly endless things to see and do in this amazing city. So whether you are just obsessed with French culture or you are considering moving here, these are 25 reasons that Paris is an amazing and interesting city!
