Colorful and fragrant flowers adorn tables, flower shops and vases. Multi-color soaps, fragrant scents and much more are spread over the streets of France.

I will admit that this addition to our list may seem cliché to some, but I assure it is anything but. As mentioned before, Paris is one of the most popular cities in the world and it is also considered to be the most romantic cities in the world.
