<Cities in France

Île-de-France is the wealthiest and most populated of the regions of France, composed mostly of the Paris metropolitan area. Île-de-France is not only the most populated region of France but also has more residents than Austria, Belgium, Greece, Portugal or Sweden.

Created as the “District of the Paris Region” in 1961; it was renamed after the historic province of “Isle de France” in 1976, when its administrative status was aligned with the other French administrative regions created in 1972. Despite the name change, Île-de-France is still popularly referred to by French people as the Région Parisienne (the Paris Region). However its inhabitants are more and more referred to as “Franciliens”, an adjective created in the 80s and successfully used today. Ninety percent of its territory is covered by the Paris aire urbaine (or “metropolitan area”) which extends beyond its borders in places.
