There are so many reasons that Paris is at the top of almost every travelers bucket list, it would be impossible to check them all off in one article. From amazing architecture to the hippest fashion in the world, the capital of France is a long sought-after destination for the traveler. Thanks to XL Airways, today’s Outpost article is all about this iconic city.
The first vision of Paris that the traveler will see, even before landing, is the gorgeous architecture of the city. Of course, the Eiffel Tower stands as one of the classic shapes of Paris. Standing at 320 m (1050 ft.), the Eiffel Tower was built as a temporary exhibit by Gustave Eiffel for the 1889 World’s Fair. Luckily, its popularity was such that it stands today, and the traveler can witness its beauty – and even see the landscape of Paris from its height. Another structure that stands out as a classic in the city is the Arc de Triomphe, which was built in 1836 to celebrate a military victory by Napoleon. Not only can the traveler get up close and personal to see the fine carvings on the arch, but can also climb steps to get a great view from the top of the arch. Another well-known location for the traveler to visit is the Notre Dame Cathedral of Paris. The French-Gothic architecture of the cathedral creates a massive work of art to marvel over. The cathedral is large enough for approximately 6,000 worshipers and features a bell tower that can be climbed for another fantastic view of Paris.
Another primary draw of Paris is the quality museums, which number at around 130. The most famous among these is the world’s largest art museum, the Louvre Museum. The Louvre is 782,910 square feet and is the world’s most visited museum, with 8.1 million visitors annually. The traveler will find works of art from prehistory to the 21st century: Egyptian antiquities, Near Eastern antiquities, Greek and Roman, Islamic art, and sculptures and paintings from all around the world. All in all, the traveler will not be disappointed with the amount of amazing art to be found all over the city of Paris.
Along with these sights, Paris known for its wine and cuisine culture. With wine being such an integral part of France’s heritage, the traveler won’t have to travel more than a few blocks to get to the next wine bar. From low-key, family-owned to upscale, modern atmosphere – there is a place for every style of traveler to enjoy and revel in their getaway.
Paris is for lovers. Paris is for culture vultures. Paris has something for everyone and should be enjoyed by every traveler at least once. That’s why XL Airways wants to work with agents and consultants to fly the traveler to this center of culture, fashion, and art.
