Nevertheless, the French Revolution became a guiding light for freedom movements in many countries. One of the most famous structures in the world and Paris’ landmark: the Eiffel Tower Famous department stores and museums of international renown Strikes and demonstrations still frequently occur in Paris and, even if they no longer have universal historical significance, every French government still fears mobilisation in the streets. The challenges associated with a large, congested urban area – metropolitan Paris has a population of 11 million – are comparable with those of other cities of the same size.

Temporary exhibitions in the Palais de Tokyo are dedicated to modern art NIGHTLIFE The Moulin Rouge, cabarets, jazz clubs, the Pigalle red-light district and discos such as Les Bains Douches: Paris nightlife is legendary. But its glory has faded. Many tourists as well as locals have been ripped off. Even if you pass the strict dress code, you will need a great deal of cash: the cover charge can be as high as 30 euros, and expect to shell out a minimum of another 10 euros for a drink voucher. Increasingly strict regulations as a result of residents’ complaints, the early closure of the Métro, the lack of taxis and expensive parking fees have led to a 2am curfew.

It remains to be seen whether this will benefit the system or simply exacerbate the city’s traffic problems. The mayor has yet another project for reducing the number of cars in Paris. It may infuriate motorists but will probably appeal to tourists. He plans to create a car-free zone along the 1½mi left bank of the Seine between the Musée d’Orsay and the Eiffel Tower, and significantly narrow the streets on the right bank. The newly-created space is to be used for gardens with rest areas, playgrounds, sports facilities, cafés, artificial islands, even cinemas and nightclubs.
