|The 'City of Lights' is also the destination of choice of romantics from across the globe. Strolling by the Seine, having dinner next to Sacre-Coeur and taking in the views from the Eiffel Tower are treasured memories of millions of tourists.
For the early spring months it is also taken over by thousands of rugby fans who make the trip to Paris for Six Nations matches at the Stade de France.
Paris is the most popular tourist destination in the world, with over 30 million foreign visitors per year.
