My Life as a Parisian

Paris is one of the world’s foremost cities for art, fashion, gastronomy, and culture. In the 21st century, its urban landscape is crisscrossed by wide boulevards and the Seine. Aside from monuments such as the Eiffel Tower and the 12th century gothic cathedral Notre-Dame, the city is known for its cafés, its boutiques, its restaurants, and its rich culture.

Participate in events hosted by the Cité internationale

More than 1,000 cultural and intellectual events that are open to the public are organized every year in the Cité’s houses. The country houses promote the spread of the language and the culture of the countries that they represent.
