Relocating to Paris

Palace of Versailles, Paris, France

Endless romance, haute couture, café culture and exquisite patisseries are all synonymous with Paris but clichés aside, the capital of France remains a prestigious location in which to work and live.

Paris is a northern central city on the banks of the River Seine, with fantastic connections to the rest of Europe – and the world – by air, rail, road and sea. It is the most populated city in France, with over 2 million inhabitants in the centre alone and almost 11 million in the wider Région Parisienne. The city is divided into 20 districts, known as arrondissements, with the underground ‘Metro’ and RER express commuter trains serving the inner-city neighbourhoods and banlieus – the Parisian suburbs.
