Paris

It is impossible to remove Paris from romantic notions when the city itself is imbued in beauty and grandeur. Known as the “City of Lights” for its early adoption of electrical lighting, its crown jewel, the Eiffel Tower, fittingly has 20,000 bulbs that gloriously light up the city at dusk. This capital is not simply a major European city but also a global center for art, fashion, gastronomy and culture. Its historical 19th-century cityscape is linked with wide boulevards and the swift River Seine which are sprinkled with some of the world’s most recognizable landmarks including the 12th-century, Gothic Notre-Dame cathedral and the Louvre, which is the world’s largest art museum.
