The love affair with the classic romantic break destination has fizzled out in recent, hyper-costly years. But the weakened euro should make strolling along the banks of the Seine, museum-hopping and hanging out in Montmartre less daunting.
Why 2012? A spate of interesting new hotels - spearheaded by the W Opera, but also including a new boutique Buddha-Bar joint and a few arty-but-affordable three-star numbers - should liven up the range of places to stay. Also, Jet2 is launching budget flights to Paris from Manchester for those living too far north to make the Eurostar practical.

I'll bide my time here until the Euro zone settles down. At the minute the Euro/pound exchange rate is Rubbish!

I totally agree with you ....but ...sorry I need a holiday !
There is a limit as to how much we need to be made to feel individually responsible for the current situation.
As for putting money into something with growth..... that doesn't happen at the moment. Interest rates are abysmal, house prices not rising etc .
So, sorry, but this weekend we're booking our holidays for the next few months.
