Paris

Ahh, Paris! The City of Light. No other city has such a reputation for romance. You can embrace it with a candlelit dinner cruise on the Seine, the city’s riverine artery, or maybe with a quaint horse-drawn carriage ride up to that iconic spire, the Eiffel Tower.

Paris’ grand boulevards are instantly recognizable (in fact, the term was invented here). Stroll down the grandest of them all when you walk the Champs-Élysées, a broad, tree-lined thoroughfare banked by pâtisseries, cinemas, and of course, plenty of picturesque Parisian cafes. Following this extravagant promenade takes you to one of the world’s foremost art collections, the Louvre.

If that’s not enough culture, the nearby Palace of Versailles hosts diplomatic functions as well as a permanent museum to complement its extensively manicured gardens.
