Europe’s most romantic city, Paris epitomises style, elegance and charm – no wonder it’s such a popular destination for a honeymoon. Famous attractions abound on a trip to Paris, from the Eiffel Tower, which you can climb for panoramic views of the city below you, to the Champs Elysees, where you can enjoy a coffee in a sidewalk café, watching the stylish locals go about their day.
Paris is one of the most visited cities on earth. What other city has significant works of art from the likes of Cezanne, Monet and Renoir housed in a former train station? What other capital has been a source of inspiration for so many writers, artists and filmmakers? Haute couture is inspired by the City of Lights, as Paris is known and shopping for fashionable garments is as much an intrinsic part of this iconic city as the simple pleasure derived from sampling a crepe in the streets of Montmartre.
