Favorite thing: If you consider, how many sightseeing you should visit, then there is no wonder, tourism is the city's biggest industry, with more than 25 million visitors annually.
To the north is Montmartre and the church of Sacré Coeur contrasted with the exotic area of Pigalle red light district.
To the south is Montparnasse, home to many artistic movements of the last couple of centuries.
To the west is the Bois de Boulogne offering romantic views of waterfalls, majestic trees, an open-air Shakespeare theater and zoo.
To the east, the Bois de Vincennes - Paris' Lungs
In the very center are all the wonderful must-sees: the Louvre and D'Orsay museums; the Eiffel Tower; Notre Dame Cathedral; Place des Vosges; Place Vendôme; Place de la Concorde; the view up the Champs-Elysées to the Arc de Triomphe; the Jardin des Tuileries, the Jardin du Luxembourg.
