most congested cities

Paris is considered by many to be the most romantic city in the world. It's also one of the most congested.

The French capital is the second most congested city in France, after the coastal city of Marseille.

"Paris is much bigger [than Marseille] and has a much more extensive road network. So if it gets busy, there will be alternative routes that drivers can take," said Cohn.

Any visitor who sees the packed traffic around the famous L'Arc de Triomphe landmark would probably think twice before getting behind the wheel.

The TomTom Traffic Index is based on real travel time data captured by vehicles driving across the entire road network. TomTom's traffic database contains over nine trillion data measurements. The Traffic Index compares travel times during non-congested periods with travel times during peak hours. Cities with the highest rankings in the index experienced the sharpest increases in travel times between non-congested periods and peak periods. Cities in Asia were not included in the index due to insufficient data.
