Paris : Michelin's recommendations
Paris, the capital of France, arose from the river which now provides a superb panoramic view of the famous monuments to be admired there. But, apart from the great museums, the superb monuments, the lively bustling boulevards, lined with shops whose names are known the world over, Paris can also be more intimate, revealing the charm of its mediaeval districts and its erstwhile villages to the casual stroller. Come and discover this city, popular and refined at the same time, where a surprise awaits you at every turn.
