I spent four days there last November and would love to return sometime during spring or summer. I saw a lot but felt like I just scratched the surface!

Stunning photos of what just might be the most beautiful city on Earth. I'm very sad to see this latest rash of terrorist attacks there, but the truth is, even those attacks considered, for an American tourist they are still safer there than they probably are just going about their daily lives in their home towns.
