Paris – The city of Lights

Ernest Hemingway said “If you are lucky to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.”

Paris is a once in a lifetime experience that must not be missed.  The city of lights is mysterious, magical and full of secrets and treasures.  Its streets are bustling with cafés and bistros smelling of wine and coffee, bakeries smelling of freshly cooked baguettes and croissants, lively fresh food markets with local colours, restaurants with terraces, cheese and gourmet food shops and its well heeled citizens taking time to enjoy their city. Its courtyards, mansion houses, gardens, squares, buildings and places have been immortalized by famous painters, writers, poets and photographers and over the years it has kept its charm and beauty.
