Paris and the North East of France make up some of the most incredible and stunning areas on the planet. Paris itself, the capital of France, is one of the largest agglomerations in Europe, with a population of around 20 million people. The city has the reputation of being the most beautiful and romantic of all cities, brimming with historic associations and remaining vastly influential in the realms of culture, art, fashion, food and design.
Dubbed the City of Light (la Ville Lumière) and Capital of Fashion, it is home to some of the world's finest and most luxurious fashion designers and cosmetics and has the second highest number of Michelin-starred restaurants in the world (after Tokyo, which is much larger), and contains numerous iconic landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, Notre-Dame de Paris, the Louvre, the Moulin Rouge and the Basilique du Sacré Cœur, making it one of the most popular international tourist destinations in the world, with around 14 million tourists annually.
Upper France (Hauts-de-France) is the northernmost region of France, located to the north of the capital and situated on the English Channel at the point closest to England. The region also fronts much of the French border with Belgium. The area has some of the country's most beautiful belfries and Gothic churches and are well worth a visit. Similarly, the north east (Grand-Est) is a region of unspeakable beauty, fronting the entire border with Germany and Luxembourg, and significant portions of the Belgian and Swiss borders as well. The area is a stunning mix of Gallic and Germanic architecture and culture, and visitors often come to quaff glasses of champagne, gobble up quiche and sauerkraut, hike or bike the Vosges, or to glide lazily down the mighty Rhine.
