If there's any place on earth that's steeped in the zenith of culture and artistic imagery, that's Paris. Paris stimulates the senses, demanding to be seen, heard, touched, tasted and smelt. From the astral romance along the Seine to landscapes on canvases to the intellects in cafes indulging on the use of garlic or the finer points of Jerry Lewis, Paris is the essence of all things French.
