Paris and its outlying areas, geographically referred to as the Ile-de-France, is the country’s beating heart and an exciting destination for a group holiday.
The city of Paris, hailed as the capital of romance, is captivating in its elegance and charming in every respect. From the iconic Eiffel Tower, to its tree-lined boulevards, world-class eateries, fashionable shops and celebrated Louvre gallery, never has the phrase ‘there’s something for everyone’ been more apt. Drink in the cityscape from the Sacré Coeur in Montmartre, stand below the Arc de Triomphe as traffic swarms around the roundabout, relax in the Jardin des Tuileries, watch a show at the Moulin Rouge, spend a small fortune on designer clothes, sample snails, drink fine wine and indulge in delicious patisserie treats; make the city yours.
On the outskirts are numerous attractions, including the Chateaux of Versailles, Disneyland Paris, Fontainebleau Palace and many other places of historic interest. 50km from Paris is the medieval fortified town of Provins where time has stood still, and today’s visitors can stroll around, taking in the scenic ramparts and pretty medieval centre.
The Paris region has much more to offer besides the France’s charismatic capital. Sprawling across the outer areas of the Ile-de-France is mile upon mile of agricultural land, cultivating varied crops on a large scale. In Val-d’Oise the limestone caves are utilised to grow mushrooms, while elsewhere flowers are also grown for wholesale. The countryside opens up a wealth of opportunities for visitors wishing to escape the fast pace of the city for a while, with forests, rivers and valleys offering a backdrop for walking, cycling, horse riding and more.
