Project Description

Paris

Paris, often called the city of lights, is the world’s top destination for tourists, and it holds the title for good reason. The Eiffel Tower is the city’s most-visited attraction, but Paris is also home to such architectural and aesthetic wonders as the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre Museum, and the Notre-Dame Cathedral. Though French is the country’s official language, Anglophones can often get by in tourist-friendly areas with only a few French phrases. A city of art, romance, and culture, Paris is guaranteed to provide an unforgettable adventure.
