I want to wake up to the smell of fresh bread in the morning from the bakery down the road, I want to roam the streets of Paris and shop in the haute couture stores. At night I want to eat dinner in fancy restaurants with an accordionist playing a few feet away like old times. I want to drink all the French wine I can get my hands on, and I want to fall asleep in the arms of my lover every night. I left a part of my heart in Paris.
Scaling the Eiffel Tower has a price, but the view from below is spectacular in its own right, and a perfect backdrop to a leisurely picnic in the surrounding grassy area. Be sure to visit the tower at night when it sparkles each hour with an awe-inspiring ten-minute display of 20,000 glittering white lights.
