Destination Paris

Friday, 08 February 2019

Paris has what it takes. With her 120.000 rooms distributed on more than 2.000 accommodation solutions, the Ville Lumière is one of the leader European Capital cities in the world for hotel occupancy. As the Paris Tourist Office explains, more than half of the overnight stays registered in the main city of France are due to business travel.

Paris has what it takes. Everyday about 300 events take place in Paris and every year new locations increase the charme of the destination. There is a service – Openings and closures – curated by the Paris Tourist Office, that allows you to keep up with the openings (and closures) regarding the stays, gastronomy, culture, shopping, free time and projects for the development of the city.

Regarding the development of the city, we suggest you to follow the project Grand Paris, to discover the Paris of the future. Through the many sources to refer to, we point you out the website of the Métropole du Grand Paris and an article by Atout France, the Agency for the touristic development in France, dedicated to some pieces of architecture that will transform Paris.
