Called "the City of Lights," Paris is truly one of the world's most beautiful cities. When arriving in Paris you may find the city more grand, evocative, beautiful, and stimulating than you had imagined it to be.
This capital city is made up of 20 districts or "arrondissements”. Each arrondissement has its own character and meaning for Parisians, offering an abundance of cathedrals, palaces, parks and gardens.
The art, music, theatre, fashion, literature, and architecture provide endless possibilities for language travellers from all over the world.
