Paris is renowned for its spectacular architecture, proud ancient history and, most recently, as being the global centre for fashion and gastronomy. Most of what has made the French capital so alluring to travelers from all over the world, is its magnificent buildings, most of which date back to the 17th and 18th centuries and now play host to some of the most highly recognized museums in the world. Its association as one of Europe’s most romantic cities is unsurprising, with its tree-lined boulevards, broken up by exquisite bridges connecting the left and right banks, perfect for all-day strolling.
