Paris is the capital and the largest city in France, inside its administrative confines has an expected population of 2,203,817 but the Paris urban area has a population of 11,769,433 which makes it the most inhabited urban area in Europe. A huge festival Paris is notorious for is Rock en Seine, a Rock'n roll two or three day festival. The celebration is held at Chateau de Saint-Cloud's park. Architecture is an additional major appeal in Paris. The Eiffel Tower undoubtedly is Paris' most famous monument having over six million visitors a year.

Further allure is Notre Dame de Paris, a gothic Roman Catholic cathedral. Paris' museums and monuments are amongst its uppermost honored attractions; tourism has motivated both the city and national governments to make new ones. The city's major prized museum, the Louvre, greets over 8 million guests a year, being by far the world's most seen art museum. The Louvre is one of the biggest and incredibly famous museums, containing many works of art, such as the Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo statue.

Paris' culinary status has its foundation in the different beginnings of its residents. This status carries on through today in a cultural variety that has ever since expanded to a universal level thanks to Paris' constant status for culinary skill and additional immigration from more and more far-away climes.

Paris has a classic Western European oceanic climate, described as mild and moderately wet. During the summer it is usually warm and pleasant with temperatures averaging between 60 and 77 degrees Fahrenheit. Spring and autumn in general are easygoing days and fresh nights. Astonishingly warm and cool weather occurs often in both seasons. For the period of winter sunshine is very limited. Days are cool but usually over freezing with temperatures around 45 degrees Fahrenheit. Soft night frosts are nevertheless fairly regular and the temperature will dip below 28 degrees Fahrenheit for simply a few days a year.

A lot of Paris' one time popular local establishments have come to accommodate to the tastes and hopes of tourists, instead of local clientele. Le Lido, the Moulin Rouge cabaret dancehall, for instance, is a theatrical dinner theatre display, a dance show that was once but one feature of the cabaret's previous ambiance. All of the places previous public or social essentials, such as its ballrooms and gardens, are not here today. An enormous deal of Paris' hotel, eating places and nighttime activity has been greatly reliant on tourism.
