Paris - or the City of Lights as it is known - has a reputation for being one of the most romantic and beautiful destinations in the world.

And it would be hard to disagree as you wande rthe whimsical bridges of Canal Saint-Martin or gawk at the glittery Champs-Elysees, from the top of the iconic Arc de Triomphe...

Day One:

Morning:

Start your day by getting your bearings. A 38-second ride in Europe’s fastest elevator to the top of Montparnasse Tower will offer you spectacular views of Paris with the peaks of the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame leading your gaze. Once you come back to ground you won’t have to look very hard for a croissant as there are great bakeries al lover. Moisan is particularly good and has a number of locations. Near the tower is the Montparnasse Cemetery where many famous writers and philosophers are buried, so you can take an informative stroll into the past, guidebook in hand.

Afternoon:

From Montparnasse, head to the banks of the River Seine, stopping off along the way for steak-frites at one of the many classic Parisian cafes that spill out onto the pavement. Along the riverbanks you’ll see picture-perfect Paris in all its glory. There are also dozens of vintage book stalls, which are a treasure hunter's dream. Paris’s most famous attractions are located here, with the Notre Dame, the Louvre and the Musee D’orsay perched along the banks – one or all are worth a visit, depending on your appetite for art.

If the weather is good, don’t miss a boat-top tour of the Seine, which is a tourist must-do and can be combined with a romantic dinner on the softly-lit decks. As you drift along the water you’ll be able to catch sight of all the major monuments, the historical buildings and the ornate bridges. On board, you can opt for a narrated tour or simply take in the scenes. Bateaux Mouches is one of the biggest companies, with tours leaving from the Eiffel Tower or Bateaux Parisiens offers a great three-course dinner

Evening:

Pigalle is the centre of the unique Paris nightlife with glaring neon lights and a raunchy reputation. Full of mythic lesbian cabarets, 24-hour peep shows and historic mansions turned debaucherous clubs, your night will see no end. Start in Hotel Amour with disco balls on the ceiling and Terry Richardson photos on the walls. Next, head to Carmen with its life-size birdcages and romantic statues throbbing alongside the all-night DJ sets. The club, which is in a former 19th-century mansion, also has an audacious cocktail list with absinthe concoctions or even some foie gras options.
