It would be an outright lie if we denied our desire to live like James Bond. The guns, the gadgets, the women; his life rivals any superhero for sheer hedonism.
While we can't show you how to become a super-spy or attract beautiful women, we can at least ensure you live like the man for a few days. If you go to Paris.
The Seven Hotel specialises in themed suites and their JB-inspired number sticks out as a definite port of call for any visiting Shortlisters. The suite boasts a Turkish steam shower, an espresso machine, Wi-fi, a safe (for gadgets of course) and an achingly awesome lamp made with a golden revolver.
The suite will cost you around €485 (£406) for a night but you could be dining out on the story for years. Or at least weeks.
