The Île-de-France is the compact region immediately surrounding the capital of France, Paris. As such, the region includes all of the Paris metropolis, from the great capital itself through gritty inner-city banlieue right out to now far-flung suburbs and exurbs, together with several large surrounding towns that form part of the greater conurbation.
