Paris The city of love

Paris is one of the most beautiful places in the world, also commonly known as the city of love. Paris is the capital of France. It is a major European city and a global center for art, fashion, gastronomy and culture. The population of Paris was 2.244 million in 2010.

The Beautiful Eiffel Tower!

The Eiffel Tower was named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower. The Eiffel tower was built for the 1889 Paris Exposition and was not intended to be permanent. The Eiffel Tower is the most visited paid monument in the world; 6.98 million people in 2011. The Eiffel Tower was originally intended for Barcelona, Spain, but the project was rejected. 1,665 steps are needed to climb all the way to the top of the Eiffel Tower. There are over 30 replicas of the Eiffel Tower around the world. At the time of its construction, the Eiffel Tower was the tallest building in the world.

Paris Landscape

The Paris Landscape is very a industrialized city with lots of buildings and attractions. The best way to see the city is by boat. One can get a one-hour cruise on the Seine in a sightseeing boat or bateaumouche, which points out the main monuments, bridges, and cathedrals and gives a history of the city.

There are many famous foods that come from Paris but one of them are croissants. August Zang, an Austrian artillery officer, is credited with bringing the croissant to France when he opened his own Viennese bakery in Paris. But some might say it was other people. January 30th is National Croissant Day. The Croissant started as a luxury product, but by the end of the nineteenth century, it was middle-class (the rich preferred a good brioche).

Disneyland Paris.

Disneyland Paris is one of the best attractions in Paris. Disney originally wanted to locate close to the Mediterranean Sea to try to match the warm climate of the parks in Florida and California. Paris eventually won out because it’s estimated to be less than a four-hour drive for 70 million people, and a two-hour flight away from 300 million more! Disneyland Paris was originally called Euro Disney, but research into low visitor numbers found Europeans associated ‘Euro’ too much with finance and work. Americans on the other hand, thought it sounded glamorous!
