City Breaks in Paris
Romantic, of course, when we walk along the banks of the Seine arm in arm, historical in its centrals districs, where golden domes are rising, gothic steeples and facades of palaces. The French Capital is also a bustling city, rough, where its inhabitant run everytime.
The city is divided in 20 administrative subdivision, very different from each other and organized very simple. The first is in the centre and the others follow in spiral in the direction of clockwise. The 1st, the middle-class which includes The Island of the Cite, where all started at the chretian era dawn has nothing to do with the VIIIth majors avenues gravitating around the Arc de Triomphe - and still less with the XIIIrd invested by the chineese minority or the XIXth with the little africans shops.
Every district has its monuments, each his soul, rythm. It's in this juxtaposition of parallel world that Paris shines as the better and found its sense.
