Paris City Breaks
A guide to Paris
Paris is a fairly compact capital city, with just over 2 million inhabitants and approximately 6 miles in diameter. It is enclosed by the Peripherique, split in two by the River Seine and divided into 20 ‘arrondissements’. It is without a doubt one of the worlds most beautiful and dynamic capital cities, and plays host to numerous exhibitions, shows, sporting events and music festivals throughout the year. The closing stages of the Tour de France, open air classical and jazz concerts are to name but a few that appear in the city. Paris is truly one of the world's great cities, and happily blends tradition with a taste for adventure.
