Paris: eternal magic, endless love
A good friend of mine likes defining Paris as "a well-organized big chaos" and I think that his original definition of the ville lumière conveys perfectly the idea of what this amazing city represents.
Paris is a cultural melting pot, an ethnical mosaic where different races and people live together in a magical balance.
This charming and fragile balance represents a prodigious miracle to the eyes of the visitor who discovers Paris for the first time.
Paris is an eternal city, to discover and to explore, to taste, to love and to enjoy.
The city of lights assembles several communities contributing actively to the growth and the dynamic creativity of itself.
Hemingway, who lived in Paris during his youth, said "If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then whenever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast."

This sentence of the famous American writer resumes cleverly and poetically the real meaning of living in Paris: to live in Paris means allowing Paris to become a part of you forever.
People who have the chance of living in Paris, and also all the ones who just visited it during a holiday, have certainly felt in love for this multiform and colourful creature.
Once the charm of Paris has penetrated into your soul, it will never quit it and it will spread quickly to every single cell of your spirit and Paris…will be a part of you.
To visit Paris during a holiday means discovering the sweetest and most romantic city of the planet, appreciating his worldwide famous reputation of city of love and enjoying a unique experience.
To live in Paris allows you to seize also the hidden and mysterious faces of this city: Paris becomes, as all the big cities, a chaotic and crowded place; you will also grab, behind the sparkles, the negative aspects of the city of lights and the several idiosyncrasies and limits of French people.
