We all have certain snapshots of landmarks that come to mind when we think of a specific cities. Here are some fun facts about five famous cities around the world: Paris, London, New York City, Venice and Shanghai.



Bonjour! Paris is also referred to as the “City of Light.” The Eiffel Tower weighs around 7,000 tons and uses up to 50 tons of paint a year! It’s also surprising to note that there is only ONE stop sign in the entire city!


London calling… The popular tourist attraction Big Ben isn’t the actual name of the clock, but rather the bell inside the clock. Today, there are over 17,000 music performances playing in over 300 venues across London. No wonder it is known for its music festivals!

New York City

Ahh, the Big Apple. It’s definitely a city to visit at least once! The city that never sleeps… Back, back in the day when the settlers were first arriving, it was originally named New Amsterdam. The statue of liberty was a gift from France that opened to the public in 1886. It is estimated that today (2016), New York City has a population of 19.8 million people!



Venice is made up of around 15 small islands and has over 150 canals. Each year, over 15 million visitors travel to this city! Make sure to visit soon, because the city is sinking about 1-2 millimetres a year.
