Indoor attractions include the Louvre, where you can admire the sculpture Venus de Milo, Correggio's painting of Venus and Cupid with a Styr and Veronese's The Wedding at Cana artwork. Why not visit the Wall of 'I Love You's' (Le Mur des Je T'Aime), a huge artwork in the Place des Abbesses in Montmartre? The wall is covered with declarations of love in 250 languages!

Book a table in the stunning Le Train Bleu restaurant in the Gare de Lyon station, which is frequently featured on the big screen. The beautiful frescoes and gilded moldings cover the walls and ceiling and are set off by glittering antique lights. The perfect romantic evening can be enjoyed at the opulent Palais Garnier Opera House, the setting for the novel/musical The Phantom of the Opera.
