Paris is the capital of France and the country's most populated city. It is situated on the river Seine, in
northern France. The city of Paris, within its administrative limits, is almost unchanged since 1860.
However, the Paris metropolitan area has a population of over 11,700,000, and is one of the largest
metropolitan areas in Europe.

Paris is today one of the world's leading business and cultural centers. About 45 million tourists every
year visit Paris Region, 60% of whom are foreign visitors.

Paris provides a bicycle service by RATP (the metro company). Those who wish to subscribe by the day or week
do so at the automatic computer terminals located at the bicycle stations, paying 1 Euro for a day subscription
and 5 Euros for a week-long subscription. You need a credit card for the day and weekly subscriptions, and
presumably you are charged at least 150Euros if you don't return the bicycle.
