Flights to Paris

The chic capital that offers everything

The capital of France goes by many names, including the City of Love and the City of Light. This is a place with a vibrant, complex and dynamic personality. Paris is a place for those who enjoy romantic history, art lovers, shopaholics and foodies. It's also a perfect destination for those who simply like to wander around and look at stunning architecture, or take a seat at a café terrace and watch the world's most fashionable people stroll by.

The history of Paris

Founded in the 3rd century BC by the Gauls, it was later conquered by the Romans. After the fall of Rome in 508AD it was renamed and established as the French capital, as it has remained ever since. Paris is a European centre for the arts, for fashion and for cuisine. Top landmarks such as the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower, the Palace of Versailles and the Notre Dame have all made this city globally famous, but between these monuments you'll find boutique shops, bohemian artists quarters and independent art galleries.

The best time to visit Paris

The city is a wonderful place to visit at any time of year. Spring, summer, autumn, and winter all boast their own joys in this city - every month an event is taking place. Summer in particular plays host to a number of national celebrations and cultural events, such as the much lauded Bastille Day, as well as two of the world's most important fashion weeks.
