In northern central France sits the nation’s capital and most populous city, Paris. The area has been inhabited since at least the third century before the common era, originally by Celtic tribes, as a key north-south trade crossing over the river Seine. The first settlements were at the top of a long arc on an island in the Seine, today known as Île de la Cité. When the Romans conquered the region in 52BCE they built out around the original island, constructing the city’s first temples, amphitheaters, and forum, for which the Romans were famous. After the fall of the Roman Empire the region was conquered by the Franks, and by the end of the 12th century Paris had become the official capital of France. Today Paris has a population of 2.2 million residents and is the center for the larger “Paris Region,” which is home to just over twelve million. Over the centuries Paris became an international center for commerce, finance, art, architecture, science, philosophy, gastronomy, and today has one of the highest GDP’s of any city in the world. Paris birthed some of the world’s greatest philosophers, writers, and poets such as Voltaire, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Alexandre Dumas, and Victor Hugo. The city is home to the Louvre art museum which houses some of the world’s most important pieces of art such as the Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo. Paris is also an international center for fashion and haute couture where companies like Dior and Chanel originated, and with its bi-annual Paris Fashion Week being one of the most important such shows in the world. The city’s importance to world history and its stature in global affairs cannot be understated, as Paris continues to be among the world’s leaders in any number of classifications.
Paris is home to millions, and destination for millions more each year. The city has been built up of the hundreds of years, and modern traffic issues could not have been envisioned by its builders.
