Paris, situated on the River Seine, is the capital and largest city in France. In Revolutionary Road, Frank and April Wheeler enthusiastically talk about relocating to Paris in the hope they can escape the problems they've encountered in Connecticut. 

Located in the Île-de-France region, Paris is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful and animated cities in Europe, comprising an abundance of iconic cultural landmarks and popular tourist attractions. Perhaps the most renowned are the cathedral Notre Dame de Paris, the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower.
