Paris in Pictures....

Near a place, near a dock, walkers, tourists, desperate to look jetent monuments, streets and alleys, which in one second ago, remind him of the charm of the city.

Paris is named after the Gallic tribe of Parisii (a Parisius, the Parisii). The word Paris is actually derived from the Latin Civitas Parisiorum (City of Parisii), a designation that has prevailed over Lutetia (Lutece). The name of Parisii is not known with certainty. The Parisii gave their name to Paris Villeparisis Cormeilles-en-Parisis, Fontenay-en-Parisis and the whole region (pagus) of Paris. In Roman times, there are also Parisii in England, in the current East Riding of Yorkshire.

Here, not far from the center, sit the Trocadero, the Eiffel Tower, the Champs-Elysées, the Place de la Concorde, the Tuileries, the Louvre, of course, but also Beaubourg, les Halles, etc. ..

Add two letters to Paris and it's heaven.
Jules Renard.

The city is braced on time.
Paul Chemetov.

The Riviera is the greenhouse or growing roots, Paris is the shop that sells flowers.
Jean Cocteau.

Light of day, light of a night
Many counties place to bloom this city,
As much charm given to conquer the beloved,
New York, Rome, Prague, London, Byzantium, Chaldea,
Europe is the world and its vast lands ...
