There are no words that can summarise the French capital in its entirety, Paris is both steeped in history and firmly fixed on the cutting-edge of modernity. It’s both a bustling metropolis and a quiet escape from the likes of London or New York. The one thing that can be said about Paris is that it is one of the most romantic cities in the world, with a never-ending series of monuments to love and passion.
Even if you’re not looking for the ultimate couple’s retreat, there’s still plenty to do in the city for families, backpackers and any other visitors with many of the largest museums in the world as well as the famous Louvre Museum and art gallery. Whatever you’re planning to do in the city, be sure to take some time to stray away from the centre and explore the lesser known areas of Paris as there’s plenty of hidden gems to be discovered.
