Paris

an artistic paradise of 19th century urban ideals

CIMG2028If we were to search for an artistic, dynamic, cosmopolitan, and historical city with its own unique personality, that would surely be Paris.

In the heart of the old continent, we find the capital of France, a city that has witnessed great political revolutions, the birth of diverse philosophical theories, and the co-existence of so many cultures, all which have produced a paradise of sensations and perceptions that can only be taken in by walking its streets.

Strolling through the center of Paris is to submerge oneself in the great era of 19th century urban ideals. Wide boulevards cloaked in uniform architectural style give Paris a stately yet artistic feel. To speak of Paris is to speak of art. In countless museums such as Le Louvre, Musee d’Orsay, and so many others, you will find world renowned masterpieces like the Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo, and Rodin’s Thinker, just to name a few.

There are entire neighborhoods, arrondisements I should say, that make you feel as if you are walking the streets of another era. Probably the best example of this is Montmartre; a place of inspiration, creativity,
philosophical discussion and artistic innovation.CIMG2030

 

And as testimony to all these Parisian characteristics, you will find the symbolic Eiffel Tower; the iconic representation of Paris; an impressive structure made of iron from which you can best contemplate the splendor of the city as a whole from whichever vantage you deem fit.

Known for its unique character, it appeals to many tastes, wishes, and desires. Paris embodies a plethora of sensations and grand accomplishments that have strongly impacted and defined our modern world.
