The Paris region is the France's foremost centre of economic activity. With €478.7 billion (US$595.3 billion), it produced more than a quarter of the gross domestic product (GDP) of France in 2005. With La Defense, the largest purpose built business district in Europe, it hosts the head offices of almost half of the major French companies, as well as the headquarters of ten of the world's 100 largest companies. It is regarded as one of the 4 major global cities.
Tourist AttractionsIf your home base is Paris and you’re ready to explore the outskirts of the city, pack light and get ready. One of your options is to take a tour of Versailles, where you’ll hear the history of the palace as well as the time of Louis XiV. Depending on what you want to spend and how much time you have, you can explore the Royal Apartments, walk in the park of the Chateau de Versailles, check out the Petit, the Grand Trianon, and the Queen’s Hamlet, along with the castle and gardens.
Constructed by Architecture Gustave Eiffel between 1887-89, Eiffel Tower is the symbol of Paris and France. You can see all the scene of Paris from the Tower. Also, Notre Dame Cathedral is another significant historical structure being a magnificent example of French gothic architecture.
To see where Monet lived during his last 40 years, you can head to Giverny. If Van Gogh is more your style you’ll enjoy Auvers sur Oise, a small village in which the artist inhabited during the last three months of his life. The Chantilly offers beautiful aristocratic chateau, stables and grounds, while the Chartres is most famous for its impressive Gothic cathedral. The Sancta Camisia, the article of clothing that was supposedly worn by Mary when she birthed Jesus, is located in the cathedral. It was a gift from Emperor Charlemagne’s grandson in 876.
You may think you’ve seen it all after you’ve seen Mary’s gown. But, you should not rule out Disneyland Paris, Europe’s top destination, which has two theme parks, seven themed hotels, Disney Village, and Golf Disneyland. Placed just 32 kilometers outside the city, it’s a spot loved by millions of children and adults alike.
Culture & EntertainmentOpera
The largest Opera houses fo Paris are the 19th-century Opéra Garnier and modern Opera Bastille. The former tends towards more classic ballets and operas, the latter provides a mixed repertoire of classic and modern.
Theatre traditionally has had a large place in Parisian culture. This still holds true today, although, perhaps strangely, many of its most popular actors today are also stars of French television. A few major theaters of the city are Bobino, Théâtre Mogador and the Théâtre de la Gaîté-Montparnasse.
Most of the clubbing in Paris happens in clubs like Le Queen, L'Etoile, Le Cab which are highly selective.
Many of the city's concert and dance halls were transformed into movie theatres when the media became popular from the 1930s. Later, most of the largest cinemas were divided into multiple, smaller rooms. The city's largest cinema today is by far le Grand Rex theatre with 2800 seats, while other cinemas all have less than 1000 seats. There is now a trend toward modern complexes with more than 10 or 20 screens in the same building.
Food & DrinkParis is world- renowned as a capital of gastronomy: a winning combination of talent, expertise and high-quality French produce. To sample the delights of traditional French cuisine, the choice of restaurants and cafés is simply huge, each with its own particular atmosphere and style. Parisian restaurants, ambassadors of good taste, offer up an endless range of flavours: tasty country dishes, Mediterranean specialities, recipes from all over the world, a galaxy of cold meats and cheeses, creative desserts… Restaurants, bars, brasseries, tea rooms, ice cream parlours, open-air cafés or pubs invite gourmets from all over the world to a real culinary feast.
ShoppingBeneath their fabulous Art Nouveau glass domes, the Parisian department stores have become must-see monuments to rival the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame. Considered to be the leading shopping centre of Europe with 120 million visitors each year, the boulevard Haussmann is a city within the city. But let’s not forget the stores on the rue de Rivoli, on the Left Bank or at the Madeleine. All together, they are a sparkling reflection of Paris in concentrated form, where all your shopping desires can be granted. Fashion, beauty, decoration, leisure and the art of entertaining are just the tip of the iceberg in the creative sea that awaits you.
Maxime Chattam’s Paris
When did you come to know Paris?
When I was a child. I lived in a suburb of Paris, and every Wednesday I went into the city to see a movie. Seeing those beautiful streets and a big city full of people every week was a wonderful experience. Paris taught me that the world is a vast place.
How have you been influenced by Paris in your books?
Actually, what influences most of my books is the old Paris. The two thrillers I’ve written are set in the Paris of the 1900’s. It took me three years to get a grasp of the Paris of that time and represent it realistically in those stories. I examined 7,000 documents and hundreds of maps and pictures. It’s like the story of a French Jack the Ripper!
What are three things everyone who goes to Paris absolutely must do?
1. Take a walk near the Louvres on a summer night.
2. Visit the catacombs, where there are millions of skeletons all over the place.
3. Enjoy a panoramic view of Paris from the terrace of a beautiful cafe.
How about fall in Paris?
Like everywhere else in the world, it’s spellbinding because metropolises are a reminder of what we harbor inside us.
1. The skyscrapers in the district of La Défense carve out a modern skyline amidst the city’s classical architecture.
2 .You can take in a variety of performances on Georges Pompidou Square.
3. Montmartre, where Sacré-Coeur Basilica is located, is known as ‘The Balcony of Paris’.
