A trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower, the monument that has symbolised Paris since 1889, is wonderfully romantic and offers the best views of the city. Other must-visits include the Musée du Louvre, one of the worlds best museums, which houses everything from Egyptian mummies to the Mona Lisa. Like many cities, Paris is best explored on foot, so join Parisien couples in love and take a walk along the edge of the River Seine. Take a trip to La Marais quarter, where youll love the gorgeous mansions, boutique shops and cafes. Jardins du Luxembourg, a park where tourists, students, dog walkers and chess and boules players congregate, is a fascinating place to while away an afternoon over a picnic of red wine, bread and cheese. Also check out the arty restaurants and boutiques around Montmartre and the Sacre Coeur (the location for much of the film Amelie) and art galleries such as the Palais de Tokyo.
