Many Canadians love to visit Paris, regarded as one of the most romantic cities in the world. The France capital has several notable landmarks such as Eiffel Tower, quaint bistros and wineries, and several other historical sites.
Since 2010, more than 500,000 Canadians visit France every year. The figure has increased over the years, with the exception of 2012 where a slight drop was recorded. Statistics on European popular travel destination for Canadians in 2014 shows that France is the most visited with 739,608 visits, followed by Italy (481,650 visits), the UK (469,000 visits) and so forth.
