Île-de-France

The Île-de-France region has 11.6 million inhabitants which is 18.5% of all French people. Therefore the area is very densely populated. Most of the people live in the metropolitan area of Paris that with only 20% of the surface harbours no less than 90% of the population.
Ile-de-France has perhaps the most sights of the whole of France.
That is because of the city of Paris. This is where the world famous Eiffel Tower is, the most photographed monument in the world. Here you find famous museums like the Louvre and the Centre Pompidou. One life is probably too short to enjoy and admire all of Paris, many call it the capital of art and culture ... But outside of Paris there is still plenty to see.
It seems to be an urbanized area but all around the city of Paris there are green areas to discover.

The region consists of 8 departments. Paris, Seine-et-Marne, Yvelines, Essonne, Hauts-de-Seine, Seine-Saint-Dennis, Val-de-Marne, Val-d'Oise.
