- Setting Description:
- Paris is one of the world's greatest capitals of culture. Countless images of iconic sites such as the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and the Champs-Élysées have been produced, but to really understand the magic and enchantment of Paris, you have to experience it. One of the most charming things about Paris is its relatively small size, which means that despite its undoubted grandeur, it maintains a village feel. It rarely takes more than 40 minutes to get anywhere and many journeys can be made on foot, perhaps stopping en-route to enjoy the legendary Parisian café culture.
