- Setting Description:
- Paris is arguably the world’s most romantic and exciting city. While oozing history, the City of Light is also vastly influential today in the realms of fashion, design, art, food, and culture. Also dubbed the Capital of Fashion, Paris is home to some of the most luxurious fashion designs and cosmetics. While walking around Paris you can see many of the building and landmarks that reflect the city’s history of foreign invasions, conquests, and military disputes. And with 12 million residents—2.2 million in the city center—there’s always something going on. Paris is a major tourist destination, and it’s no wonder, with such sights as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum, Notre-Dame Cathedral, and the Moulin Rouge, to name just a few. There are the museums, art galleries, gardens, and monuments. There’s the everyday beauty of Parisian life, the streets, and the Seine. And then there is Paris at night! The city is divided into 20 districts (arrondissements) that form a clockwise spiral
