The City of Light – Paris, France

Oblique / Travel

Paris, the cosmopolitan capital of France, is an old favourite for many travellers. Dubbed the City of Light (la Ville Lumière), Paris has the reputation of being the world’s most beautiful and romantic city, and it is one where, in my opinion, the reality is more than the myth.


Tree-lined boulevards and charming café terraces contribute to the city’s allure, while magnificent public monuments and iconic landmarks add grandeur and remind me of the city’s historical association – a large part of the city, including the River Seine, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Even though it is steeped in history, Paris has stayed “current” and remained highly influential in contemporary art, culture and fashion. Today, the city is home to a number of the world’s finest and most luxurious fashion designers and brands.
