In 2015 it was elected the most admired city in the world.

Besides the luxury sector, Paris is also known for its gastronomic culture, which is among the most influential and prescriptive in the world, especially through the annual edition of the famous Michelin Guide.

Approximately 38 million tourists came to Paris in 2019

a new record set before the Covid crisis, thanks to the influx of French and Japanese tourists and the growing loyalty of American tourists despite the increasing demand for sustainable tourism. 

The city also attracted 17.5 million foreign visitors in 2018, becoming the sixth most visited city in the world and fourth capital city, thanks to the leading hotel capacity in Europe and important assets for business travel (trade shows, events, etc.) but also several monuments of Paris listed as world heritage, such as the Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral, the most visited monument in Europe and one of the most visited, if not the most visited, monument in the world until it was partially burned down in 2019.

Why visit Paris?

As the world's capital of tourism, Paris attracts millions of visitors each year from all over the world, including France. It must be said that few cities rival their historical, architectural, gastronomic, and cultural heritage.

Each district has its own soul, sometimes bourgeois, sometimes bohemian. If you take the time to discover the City of Light as it is today, you are sure to find poetry in its cobbled streets, its quays of the Seine, its popular pubs. Paris is rich in monuments: the Louvre Museum, the Champs-Elysées, the Eiffel Tower, the Sacré-Cœur...
But the French capital is always on the move and contemporary places like the Cité de la Musique or the Fondation Cartier are worth a visit.

Main places of interest in Paris

Paris is first of all known for its emblematic monuments: Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Notre-Dame de Paris, Sacré-Cœur, Opéra Garnier.
