With all of these people living in and around the city, Paris is always on the move no matter what time of the year it is.

The city of Paris is known as the international capital of art and fashion.

If you love fashion, you need to travel to Paris to see where it all starts. And of course, Paris is also the home to some of the best art in the world. It is also called the Romantic City by some.

When in Paris there are three landmarks that you will not want to miss. People from all over the world travel to Paris to visit these attractions. Perhaps the most popular is the Eiffel Tower.
