Paris is the capital city of France. It is situated on the River Seine, in northern France, at the heart of the 'le-de-France region. Paris is the most popular tourist destination in the world, with over 30 million foreign visitors per year.

The earliest archaeological and rather detailed signs of permanent habitation in the Paris area date from around 4200 BCE. The area near the river Seine was settled from around 250 BCE by the Parisii, a sub-tribe of the Celtic Senones, who were known as boatmen and traders.

Paris has an oceanic climate and is affected by the North Atlantic Current, so the city has a temperate climate that rarely sees extremely high or low temperatures.

Two of Paris' oldest and famous gardens are the Tuileries Garden, created from the 16th century for a palace on the banks of the Seine near the Louvre, and the Left bank Luxembourg Garden, another formerly private garden belonging to a chateau built for the Marie de' Medici in 1612.

The lines between cafés and bars in Paris are very blurred, with cafés where you can settle in with a beer and a croissant for breakfast and bars when you can enjoy a late night sandwich along with your cocktail. Techno, house, garage and Latino are the popular sounds of Paris and, to a lesser extent, hip-hop and drum and bass.
