For several years the destination "Paris Ile-de-France" has been the most visited tourist region in the world.
Widely popular for the diversity of its natural, heritage and cultural wealth, our destination offers visitors of all ages, from near and far, a wide choice of holidays – particularly short city breaks – and activities of all types, all year round.
The principal region for French art of living, it promotes the influence of the cultural values for which our country is internationally famous.
"Paris Ile-de-France" is also one of the youngest and multicultural regions in Europe and its creative energy in many fields ‒ design, fashion, music, etc – is constantly reinvigorated.
Tourism is one of its major business sectors. From an economic point of view, it represents about 600,000 direct and indirect jobs. A dynamic sector, the number of people it employs is also increasing at a rate of growth higher overall than other business sector. By creating employment, tourism also generates a lot of wealth. For instance, it alone generates nearly 10% of the region’s gross domestic product (GDP).
