What makes Paris a great destination

 Why Paris

Paris is the Grande Dame of all cities, with one leg on the Left Bank, where artists like Hemingway, Fitzgerald and Picasso settled in the 20's  to create art and literature, and the other leg on the grandiose right bank, with gold gilded landmarks like the  Place de la Concorde, the overwhelming buildings of the Louvre and the grand boulevard of the Champs Elysees.

Countless songs have been written about Paris, but it is hard to catch the vibrance and grandeuer that is our city.

Paris is renowned worldwide as a capital of gastronomy: a winning combination of talent, expertise and high-quality French produce. To sample the delights of traditional French cuisine, the choice of restaurants and cafés is simply huge, each with its own particular atmosphere and style. Parisian restaurants, ambassadors of good taste, offer up an endless range of flavours: tasty country dishes, Mediterranean specialities, recipes from all over the world, a galaxy of cold meats and cheeses, creative desserts... Restaurants, bars, brasseries, tea rooms, ice cream parlours, open-air cafés or pubs invite gourmets from all over the world to a real culinary feast.

At Metropolis DMC, we know the best venues, the intimate restaurants, the special touches that make events and incentives magical.
