While the magic of Paris has been well documented, you’ll never quite understand it until you experience the grand boulevards, outdoor cafes and twinkling street lamps firsthand. Filled with important art, luxurious hotels, unrivaled shopping and outstanding restaurants, Paris attracts foodies, fashionistas, art connoisseurs and everyone in between. The City of Light is divided into 20 numbered arrondissements (neighborhoods) and most visitors stick to the first 10, nearest the city’s center. Once you’ve seen the must-visit tourist spots — Mona Lisa’s smile at the Louvre, the view from the Eiffel Tower, the giant bells of Notre Dame Cathedral — settle in to a busy corner café to take in some world-class people watching. Shop major Parisian brands Louis Vuitton and Cartier along the Champs-Élysées and duck into a traditional brasserie for favorites like pâté en croute and guinea hen. Lovers will find this one of the most romantic cities in the world — at night, dimly lit narrow cobblestone streets beg for hand-holding and stolen displays of affection.
