Via USA Today

As the relentless crowds flock to major tourist sites in cities like Paris and Venice, travelers need to face the truth — we’re wearing each other (and the cities we’re visiting) out.

City of Love: Romantic Things to Do in Paris

City of Love: Romantic Things to Do in Paris

from Lonely Planet
