Take the Plunge At the Top Of the Eiffel Tower The Eiffel Tower has been witness to many marriage proposals, first kisses, and declarations of love and it may be a bit of a cliché but what list of Parisian romantic spots would be complete without mentioning this iconic landmark?
If a fear of being 324 meters high is going to stamp the romance out of the moment, or if the thought of queuing for more than 30 minutes is unbearable, then stay on the ground and propose between the four legs with the incredible steel architecture towering above you.
Climb On The Wall Of ‘I Love You’ Find love in many different languages at The Wall of Love, located in the Jehan Rictus Garden Square in Montmartre. This wall was created as a rendezvous spot for couples and a lasting monument to undying adoration.
In today’s world, walls and borders serve to separate people. The wall of love, however, was designed to unite everyone in love and peace, with “I Love You” carved 311 times in 250 languages. Truly a place of love and a unique location to propose.
Seal the Deal at Ponts Des Arts One of the world’s original love lock locations, the Pont des Arts bridge connects the Louvre and the Institut de France across the Seine and recently cleared one million or so symbols of enduring love after they threatened to strain the infrastructure.
Go Gaga at Musée De La Vie Romantique A haven tucked away at the foot of Montmartre, the garden of the Museum of Romantic Life is truly delightful for lovers who are in search of a place for peace and serenity.
No matter the weather, you can always seek refuge under the protective glass of the beautiful cafe, with tea to warm the soul. If the sun is out, nothing beats lounging comfortably in the country garden outside, which is open to all, not just visitors to the museum.
In the summer months, the refreshing perfume of spring and summer flowers will fill your nose, and the garden is rarely crowded so it won’t be difficult to find a private, enchanting place to sit. The beautiful location, the pleasing cafe that serves exquisite pastries, and the garden itself all unite together to create a magical place for lovers.
Set Sail On a River Seine Cruise Take a romantic cruise on the river Seine where you can discover the unique sights and landmarks such as the Notre Dame, the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower and the Musée d’Orsay as you’ve never seen them before.
The river is the heartbeat of Paris and spans 13km through the city, as well as under 37 bridges, glide under one bridge to another and enjoy the heart of bustling Paris.
We recommend taking this cruise in the evening where you can also have dinner and enjoy the Hollywood-level romance of the setting.
Worship Your Partner at Temple Romantique If you are looking for somewhere more intimate to propose, look no further. This temple sits on its own little island in the middle of a lake in the Bois de Vincennes, the largest public park in the city.
It was built in 1860, influenced by the Rococo movement. The temple also has a twin in the Buttes-Chaumont (another park in Paris). The difference is that Temple Romantique is much less well known, which means you can enjoy the intimacy of the romantic moment without a dozen other couples trying to do the same.
Pucker Up at Place Dauphine Take your other half for a romantic stroll either in spring during the daytime when the trees are in full blossom or in winter on a cool night when the square is illuminated by the traditional French lampposts.
This lovely and peaceful residence is the epitome of Paris life and is the perfect spot to get down on one knee.
