The Design Capital of the World
Founded as an official city in the 3rd century, the earliest sign of Human habitation actually dates back to 7500BC. An early Celtic tribe known as the Parisii settled in the area around 250BC until the arrival of the Romans in 52BC.
During the middle ages Paris was the largest City in Europe and a vital centre of trade and commerce. The city has been occupied numerous times over its history having been a capital or regional capital for the Romans, Franks, Nazis, Burgundians, English and warring French factions.
These days school trips to Paris will find the modern capital of culture, style and fashion.
