When it comes to romance, no city in the world can compare to Paris. With all of its marvelous monuments, beautiful gardens, and delicious restaurants, Paris is the perfect place to visit for you and your loved one. Although there are hundreds of romantic spots, here are our special picks for where to say I love you to your special someone.
1. The Classics
There is no better place to say I love you than at Paris’ two most iconic landmarks – Tour Eiffel and Pyramid du Louvre. The top of the Eiffel Tower, where Tom Cruise proposed to Katie Holmes, offers breathtaking views of the entire city. The Louvre pyramid is a stunning sight as well, especially at night when it is illuminated by the moonlight.
2. La Seine and its Bridges
The Seine River is one of the main things that makes Paris the beautiful city that it is. With its stunning shades of blue and reflections of nearby monuments, the Seine is a perfect place to take a long romantic walk with your loved one.
Make sure to walk along the bridges as well – especially Pont Alexandre III, with its illustrious statues, and Pont des Arts – the famous “Love Lock” bridge.
3. The Gardens and Parks
Despite its metropolitan vibe, Paris has a plethora of beautiful parks and gardens that make you feel like you’re in the countryside. Most notably, there is the Parc Monceau with its golden gates and romantic bridges, the Luxembourg Gardens with its landscaped gardens and beautiful palace, and the gardens of Tuileries with its beautiful flowers and fountains, and an incredible view of the Louvre.
4. The Hidden Gems
If you and your loved one would like to visit some less touristy areas, be sure to check out the Bois de Boulogne, where you can rent a paddle boat and have a picnic on a lake, the park André Citroën, where you can ride in a hot air balloon, and the Montmartre Wall of Love, where you can see the words I Love You written in over 250 different languages.
