Paris, the capital of France, is one of the most visited cities in the world. Renowned for its beauty this major European city is a global centre for art, fashion, gastronomy and culture. The name "Paris" is derived from its early inhabitants, the Celtic Parisii tribe. The Parisii inhabited the Paris area from around the middle of the 3rd century BC.
