The people in Paris generally feel that their city is simply the “it” city in the global arena. Well they may relatively be right, especially if we consider the city’s geography. Located at the heart of Ile-de-France, the city is surrounded by seven administrative divisions also called as suburban départements which is also referred to as petite and grande couronnes (crowns).
Each of these crowns is dotted with its own historic and cultural treasures, which range from picturesque villages and majestic palaces.
