Travel + Leisure readers rate which cities stoke their romantic fires. Cupid, take note.

No. 1 Paris

1 of 21

For both arts lovers and lover lovers, ranking the City of Light as the best in the world in both categories may sound cliché, but the heart wants what the heart wants (and is always right). Walks along the Seine, tree-lined boulevards and cobbled lanes, a swoony stop at the Musée Rodin, or a simple glass of red in a cozy bistro all add to l'amour Parisienne.

Don’t Miss: The picnic-perfect Place des Vosges, one of Paris’s oldest and most beautiful squares, surrounded by elegant 17th-century mansions in the Marais quarter.
