Paris never used to look like this

Ah, Paris. The most romantic city in the world. Stroll along the beautiful Champs-Elysees, admire the Arc de Triomphe, go up the Eiffel Tower (and look down on Napoleon’s tomb), visit the Place de la Concorde, admire the Sacre-Coeur basilica in Montmartre, and go to the Isle-de-la-Cite and visit the breathtaking Notre Dame cathedral. Everyone who goes to Paris wants to return.

You can just see how this 100-year-old door has been enhanced by the additional artwork, can’t you?

Paris is losing 1.5 million tourists a year.

Why?

Because Paris has now become…

A shithole.
