La Ville Lumiere needs no introduction. Paris is iconic architectures, glorious food, stylish shopping and a wealth of culture and art that is second to none. No wonder that this is the number one city on the world’s wish list. Paris is ‘grand’ and ‘local’ at the same time: its majestic boulevards and rich buildings coexist with the village-nature of its neighbourhoods. Visitors who have never been here will marvel at its stunning beauty of its main sights – but even someone who has been to Paris a million times will find some corners of undiscovered charm that seem to pop up at every corner.
France has a very advanced legislation when it comes to LGBT rights and Paris has been a very cosmopolitan and laissez-faire city for a very long time. And as a very big metropolis it offers an incredibly rich choice when it comes to LGBT culture, nightlife and entertainment. Paris’ gay quarter - the centrally located Marais, is not just lively and buzzing but also pretty and interesting to explore.
