The joy of life

A true Parisian lover said, "If you're lucky enough to visit or live in Paris during your youth, this will stay with you for your entire life". - Ernest Hemingway. Visit Paris in peace, accompanied by the beating heart of the city, the Seine, the river that divides Paris into two and simultaneously unites it through beautiful bridges. Take your time because Paris is a city you will never forget.
