Paris. La Ville Lumière. The home of Victor Hugo and of the Mona Lisa. The Capital of the Western World. This one city in Europe has captured the imagination of lovers, artists, and poets throughout the centuries like no other place in the world. One always thinks that where ever they are, this place is the centre of the world. But when one sees Paris for the first time, they truly understand that they are finally in the centre of the world. The world seems to spin and rotate from this one special city. Although it is known for many things, Paris is most assuredly among the most beautiful cities in the ancient and modern world.
