Paris has condensed two thousand years of European history into a cultural offer that is unique in the world, without turning into a museum itself. Paris still represents the forefront of creation in all fields: visit the cultural exception!
Paris offers some of the most beautiful museums in the world: Branly, Louvre, Orsay, château de Versailles, Pompidou, Museum of Modern Art, Palais de Tokyo, Picasso, Rodin, Piaf, du Romantisme, Mac/Val, Cartier Foundation, etc. It is known that Paris, benefiting from its very rich history, its abundant student life, and its cutting-edge humanities research, is still a cultural capital of the world. The number of shows on offer on a daily basis lends credence to this affirmation.
Take the architecture, for example: wherever you are, if you look at the details of a façade, a cornice or a corbel, you’ll end up with a summary of the history of art, a veritable open-air encyclopaedia.
But Paris is also the present and the future. As a fashion and modern-art capital, it offers visitors the many faces of novelty. Moreover, it even offers, from time to time, some of the greatest shows related to film, video gaming, automobiles and design. In the evening, the underground also offers musical surprises and live art performances.
Paris is the bridge between the past, the present and the future. From classicism to modernism, from the contemporary to the avant-garde, your curiosity will always be satisfied: this global city will surprise you by the diversity and density of its offering. It’s up to you to see what you had expected to see; Paris will show you the rest.
