We all know that Paris is a perennially popular tourist destination, but new data confirm that the city, is, in fact one of the most-visited travel destinations in the world. 


The World Tourism Organization came out with data on the most visited tourism destinations in the world in 2013, and France took the top spot.


Perhaps unsurprisingly, France was the most-visited country in 2013 with 84.7 million visitors. The U.S. came right behind with 69.8 million visitors, and Spain was third with 60.7 million visitors.
