“Add two letters to Paris, and it’s Paradise”, wrote Jules Renard…and in the words of Hemingway, Paris is indeed a movable feast! It may share its name with some 38 towns and cities throughout the world, but Paris, the City of Light, the capital not only of France but also the arts, culture, romance and fashion, is well and truly unique! Split in two by the Seine, Paris has its Left Bank and its Right Bank. The river is straddled by 37 bridges, the oldest of which is ironically named Pont Neuf (New Bridge). Rumbling beneath its streets is the metro, which was opened in 1900 for the Universal Exhibition and covers a network of 220 km, serving 302 stations. Its 1,903 sights include the most famous, the Eiffel Tower! Since 2015, it has hosted “La Verticale”, the most unusual stair race in the world. The record for the event currently stands at 665 steps climbed in 7 minutes and 53 seconds.
