    Paris is lovely, I went as a student so you probably don't want to stay where I did lol I'd recommend prebooking Eiffel tower tickets before you go though as it gets very busy. Check out the Louve (where the Mona Lisa is) and Monmartre and beware of street sellers trying to put bracelets on you as you walk around.

    I remember those bracelet sellers at the bottom of the sacre couer steps, they nearly dragged a guy off his bike!

    If it were me there would be a day trip to Disneyland involved! I also liked seeing notre dame when I went and the boat cruises on the seine are lovely. The jardin du Luxembourg are also nice to visit.

    Also my colleagues used to go to the Buddha bar whenever they went, I've never been but they said it was nice.

    We are doing exactly this for my hubby's 30th in March, we got bargain flights with Jet2 so we have splashed out a bit on the hotel!! Booked it on Trivago so still got a deal. We plan to do Eiffel Tower, river seine, stroll down champs élysées, visit bakeries and choc shops!!! You will love it I'm sure!
