Paris, France

Craving a romantic getaway? Paris is the perfect place. The City of Lights remains one of the most popular destinations on the planet — with millions of international visitors flooding into France each year. With so much to see and do on the banks of the River Seine, it’s no great surprise that tourism continues to boom here.

It can be busy, but with tourists spoilt for choice in this iconic city, it is still possible to beat the crowds and take things at your own pace. The most popular spots include The Louvre — the most visited art museum on Earth — as well Notre Dame, the Champs-Elysees and, of course, the Eiffel Tower.

But Paris is perhaps best experienced from a quiet café on the Left Bank. Head here for coffee and croissants, before strolling the city’s grand boulevards en route to Montmartre, where the artists await and the bistros beckon.
