It's known as the City of Love, so what better place than Paris for truly loved-up couple Liz Hurley and Shane Warne to jet off to for a romantic city break?
And it's great to see that even celebs are just like us: cheesy selfie in front of the Louvre? Tick.
Get another tourist to stop and take a picture of you both in front of the Eiffel Tower? Tick.
Picture of one of you (in this case Shane) posing in front of the Arc de Triomphe because you don't want to bother somebody else to take another snap of you together? Tick.
Liz uploaded her pics to Twitter and wrote: "@warne888 and I lurking at the Louvre...", before posting: "At the Eiffel Tower! Yes, we wheezed up every step...", and then: "And here's my gorgeous @warne888 at the Arc de Triomphe..."
There was one pic that not all tourists would be so keen on doing: eating the nation's famous culinary favourite, snails.
But it looks, overall, like their mini break was trés fantastique...
Fancy getting off the beaten tourist track in Paris? Flick through our handy guide:
Ooh la la! Liz Hurley and Shane Warne enjoy romantic trip to Paris
This world-famous bookshop, Shakespeare and Company (Rue de la Bûcherie, Metro: Saint-Michel-Notre-Dame) has provided a bed to some 50,000 penniless authors since it opened in 1951 – the idea being that writers who worked in the shop got to live there, too. The store, which predominantly sells books in English, has become something of an institution, with regular literary events and a constant stream of visitors keen to pick up a new read in order to come away with a bag bearing the shop's name.
If you enjoy an ice cream in Paris, you can guarantee it'll be a Berthillon – a Parisian ice cream manufacturer that started up in 1954. Check out the main store on Rue Saint Louis en l'ile (Metro: Ponte Marie) for a bevy of unusual flavours, including granny apple, prune and rhubarb. Prepare to queue down the road for your cone but, rest assured, it'll be worth it.
You don't get a much more lavish setting for lunch than a 19th-century Parisian mansion. The café at the Jacquemart-André museum (Boulevard Haussman, Metro: Miromesnil) – which is well worth a visit in itself for its impressive art collection – is adorned with antique paintings and tapestries. A fascinating collection of figures looks down at you from the ceiling painted by 18th-century Italian artist, Tiepolo. The set lunch menu comes in at a reasonable €16.50.
Done the streets of Paris? Then why not have a look what's under them? The Paris Catacombs (Avenue du Colonel Henri Rol-Tanguy, Metro: Denfert-Rochereau) are lined with bones and skulls from The Cemetery of Innocent, which had to be closed because it was causing disease in the city at the end of the 18th century. Housing the remains of close to six million Parisians, it's an eerie but ultimately fascinating sight.
Fashion-lovers, history-buffs and shopping queens should all go on pilgrimage to the Chanel Store on Rue Cambon (Metro: Madeleine) where the iconic brand began. In 1910 Coco Chanel opened her first shop – a hat store – here, and had her private apartment on the second floor. Fancy buying something but can't afford to spend thousands? Then come away with a bottle of exclusive 31 Rue Cambon perfume to remember your visit.
Forget the Avenue des Champs-Élysées. Dedicated shoppers should head to the sprawling Les Puces flea market on the edge of Paris (Saint Ouen, Metro: Porte de Clignancourt). The market has built up since the 19th century and today, in the maze of tiny, intertwining streets, you'll find over 2,000 stalls creaking with vintage fashion, furniture, crockery, books, and just about everything in between. Be sure to practice your haggling en Français before you go!
Did you know that New York's Statue of Liberty was actually designed by a Parisian, Frédéric Bartholdi, and was given as a gift to America by the French? So it's perhaps no surprise that Paris has it's own lesser-known version (Île aux Cygnes, Metro: Bir-Hakeim). It's just 37 feet, nine inches, to the New York version's 305 feet. But it makes for a wonderfully quirky and incongruent site, with the Eiffel Tower set behind it.
Escape the obvious romantic hotspots in the City of Love and visit le mur des je t'aime – the I love you wall (Place des Abbesses, Metro: Abbesses). Across 612 enamelled tiles you'll find 'I love you' written in hundreds of different languages. Search for those you can understand or just marvel at this piece of large-scale modern art.
You're spoilt for choice when it comes to churches in Paris, with the likes of Notre Dame and Sacré-Cœur. But Sainte-Chapelle (Boulevard du Palais, Metro – Cité) easily rivals them in the beauty stakes, with three walls of near floor-to-ceiling stained glass. Inside the gothic masterpiece, the air dances with colours as the light catches the multicoloured glass – guaranteed to have you captivated.
If you've ticked off the Centre Pomidou and the Louvre but want an art fix, head to the Rodin Museum (Rue de Varenne, Metro: Varenne). It displays the work of French artist Auguste Rodin, made famous by his sculptures The Thinker and The Kiss. Set in a picture-perfect mansion and with vast gardens, it's a lovely place to amble away an afternoon. And it's a welcome escape from the madding crowds at the more famous Parisian art destinations.

If you happen to be visiting China's Zhejiang Province in the springtime, it's the delicate stench of young boys' urine, rather than daffodils, you'll be sniffing. It's not down to a regional problem with toilet training, rather the pee is used to soak and boil eggs to create a tasty street food snack. Aficionados claim they have 'the taste of spring', but we'll stick with chocolate Mini Eggs, thanks.
Look away if you're squeamish. Balut are boiled, fertilised duck eggs, the (usually) 17 day embryo almost fully developed, with fuzzy hair, bones, beak and all. Commonly sold as street food in the Philippines and other South East Asian countries, they're served with a little salt and or a chili and vinegar mixture and are thought to be an aphrodisiac. Er, yum.
If you like your cheese so 'ripe' that it's actually moving, then this Sardinian speciality is for you. Pecorino sheep's milk cheese is left in the open air until cheese fly larvae are laid, these then hatch and the acid from the digestive systems of the thousands of resulting maggots breaks down the cheese to a soft, seeping texture. To add to the fun and games, when disturbed, the larvae can launch themselves up to 15cm in the air.
Ah, the deep fried pizza – stuff of legends. Anyone in any doubt about the existence of this Scottish speciality need only visit a Glasgow chippy on a Saturday night to discover they are alive and well and causing the multiple heart attacks across the land. Any food snobs tempted to scoff should know that 'pizza fritta' is also a Neopolitan speciality (although admittedly they draw the line at stuffing the pizza with a poke of chips...)
Yes, the brain of the small tree climbing rodent is a delicacy in some parts of the US. You cook the head with the rest of the body (after cleaning of course), then, using your fingers and a fork, you crack the skull open and dig the brain out. Apparently, it tastes kind of like mushrooms.
As you probably know, the Scandies are very keen on herring. Fried, pickled, whatever. But in the north of Sweden, they go one further in the pursuit of herring heaven by leaving Baltic herring to ferment in their tin until they reach a level of putrefecation that demands the tin only ever be opened and eaten outside.
A dead tarantula's a good tarantula, so if you're passing through the Cambodian town of Skuon, give these deep fried delicacies a try. The legs are crispy and taste of the salt, sugar, oil and garlic in which they're fried, while the gooier abdomen, home to the spider's organs, eggs and excrement, is more of an, ahem, acquired taste.
Pity the poor puffin who happens to be born in Iceland, where he gets no legal protection and where his heart, still warm and eaten raw, is a national delicacy. In a country where other food favourites include fermented shark meat and cured ram scrota, looking cute, colourful and clumsy is no defence against being fished out of the sky with a large net.
Considered a Peruvian delicacy, guinea pig meat apparently tastes a bit like hare. Breeders recently bred a new 'super guinea pig' in the hope that they could export it to America and around the world. Hmmm. We're still waiting to see if it'll catch on...
Served up in street markets in Nanjing, guess who the the biggest purchasers of these crunchy little critters are? Tourists. Apparently, these taste slightly bitter. And they're very chewy. Which begs the question: why eat them at all?
The UK may be up in arms over unintentionally feasting on horse but it's a delicacy in Japan. Basashi is raw slices of horse traditionally served with ice, daikon pickles and soy sauce. If the idea of horse sashimi doesn't send you galloping to the nearest Japanese restaurant then maybe the news that it also comes in ice cream form will...minced horsemeat ice cream, pass the spoon!
Vietnam operates an 'if you can catch it you can eat it' ethos towards food, which is bad luck for these little birds. This dish recalls the more sinister edge of the nursery rhyme sing a song of sixpence, where four and twenty blackbirds were baked in a pie. These members of the sparrow family are roasted or grilled until crispy and eaten whole, head and all.
It comes to the table rolled up and looking like a cold flannel and, to be honest, doesn't taste that much more pleasant to eat. This thin, greyish, crepe-like pancake is a mealtime staple in Ethiopia and made from the fermented grain Teff, giving the injera its distinctive sour, tangy flavour.
Could you bring yourself to eat one of these cute, furry creatures? If you were in Bolivia you would probably be persuaded as tender Llama meat it served as steaks and burgers. This south American super food apparently tastes like a cross between lamb and beef but comes with far less cholesterol.
Is it a crustacean, a flower or a piece of coral? Actually Buddha's hands are citrus fruits from the Himalayas and, more recently, California. Use these floral-scented fingers as you would a lemon or lime, grating the peel and zest in salads, cakes and drinks or dried to fragrance a room. Buddha's hand margarita anyone?
In Iceland, svid - burned and boiled sheep head - graces many menus from restaurants to bus stops. Diners can eat every part of the head, from cheeks to tongue and eyes (although the latter is preferred by only the most hardcore locals).
