Streets of Paris

The City of Light may be the most beautiful and romantic city in the world. Spending an afternoon in a cafe watching people walk by and engaging in idle conversation with a friend is an unforgettable memory. In our opinion the real beauty of Paris was revealed by exploring the streets: from the hidden passages, the enchanting courtyards and the Grands Boulevards to the banks of the River Seine...

The treelined boulevards of five story buildings with little balconies in every window gives Pairs a uniform beauty that is instantly recognizable. The entire city gives off the impression that it was all built from a single blueprint … and it pretty much was. Emperor Napoléon III and General Georges Haussmann embarked upon the greatest urban redevelopment project that ever was and probably ever will be. Can you imagine a city the size of Ottawa, ON completely leveled and rebuilt in a few decades because that's exactly what the Parisians were up to 150 years ago...
