To the north of Italy lies Milan, Italy's main industrial, commercial, and financial centre. Milan has a colourful history which is still evidence in its architecture as well as its wounds from World War II and beyond. The people are nothing but full of expression and passion for their country, as well as being Milanese. It may be a small city to visit on holiday but one not to miss as Da Vinci's The Last Supper is not the only jewel Milan has to offer.
A city that sparks a love affair with its history, serenades you with its accordion, intoxicates you with its wine and arouses your inner sense to appreciate beauty - that is Paris. Like any other cosmopolitan city in the world, it is busy, fast moving and a melting pot of cultures. But through all that fast-paced-movement this fashion capital is still true to its roots with the love of art, apéritif and cheese. Hidden bars to old churches, this city is nothing short of a surprise if you know where to look.
The Île de la Cité is one of two natural islands located in the Seine River in Paris. It is in the centre of Paris and is home to the famous Notre Dame cathedral (built from 1163), Louis IX’s Sainte-Chapelle (built between 1242 - 1248), Palais de Justice as well as the Conciergerie prison where Marie Antoinette awaited her execution.
