    The Ultimate Paris Bucket List

    Paris: City of Love, City of Lights appears on quite a lot of bucket list ideas. Paris is one of the major cities of Europe – if not the world – and tourists flock there every year. With the Parisian region covering over 12,000 kilometres there's a lot of ground to cover and tourist attractions are anything but sparse. Our own Paris bucket list is lengthy – clocking in at 37 attractions – and is certain to keep tourists busy on their trip to the French capital
