Notre Dame Cathedral

Paris, France

The Eiffel Tower may be the City of Light’s most popular symbol, but for romantics, nothing says Paris quite like Notre Dame Cathedral. Completed in 1345, the French Gothic structure -- with its famous flying buttresses, gargoyles and church bells -- sits on the Île de la Cité in the River Seine, seemingly rising from the water. Leave your cares behind while floating past on a tour boat, particularly at dusk, with the fading light highlighting the structure’s intricate stonework. Joie de vivre, indeed.
