Region: Ile-de-France

Population: 2.25 million (12.29 million in the urban conglomeration)

There can be few cities on the planet that can claim to have been at the center of history as Paris has. Roman, English, Prussian and German armies have all laid siege, while kings, queens, communes and emperors have reigned and toppled as history played out within its walls.

A centre of progressive thinking, modern Paris is recognised for its architectural beauty, Baron Haussmann famously carving 12 grand avenues into the city soil, radiating from the Arc de Triomphe, during the 1860s. Known as the City of Light, Paris still sets the global agenda for culture, cuisine, and fashion, as well as boasting an unmatched artistic heritage.
