UNIQUE THINGS TO DO IN PARIS FOR LOVERS

A room with Eiffel Tower view

Is there anything in Paris more unique about Paris than the Panthéon? Thanks to its monumental size, the Eiffel Tower can be seen from almost every corner of the city, usually outstanding amongst the quintessential rooftops of Paris. The good news is that some of Paris’ top luxury hotels, well known for their great facilities and amazing interiors, come also with the best views of Eiffel Tower, especially beautiful during its night show. So if you are planning a romantic weekend in Paris and you can afford it, why not treating yourself with the pleasure of waking up with an amazing Eiffel Tower balcony view?

Rowboat Ride at Château de Versailles

Château de Versailles and its picturesque Gardens are the perfect frames for a romantic day. But if you want to do something really special for your loved one, a rowboat ride along the Grand Canal (13€, minimum half an hour) will be something difficult to forget. After visiting the impressive Château de Versailles, explore Versailles Gardens and Fountains from another point of view, from the water. We are sure that a romantic rowboat ride at Château de Versailles will blow her away.

There is no possibility to book rowboat rides in advance. The hire point is located on the banks of the Grand Canal near Little Venice.

OUR TIPS: if you want to visit also the Palace, we strongly recommend to buy a Versailles Palace and Gardens skip the line ticket online in advance, the lines to visit Versailles Palace are insane (and not romantic at all!).

Night at Opera Garnier

The Seine River is one of the most romantic places in Paris, especially at sunset when the city lights up its monuments and bridges. That’s why many locals in Paris choose the Seine River’s banks in Paris 1 and Paris 4 for a romantic walk or a picnic under the stars. If you prefer the second, remember that picnicking in Paris is an art where nothing is left to chance. A special picnic menu and a nice bottle of wine or champagne while dangling your legs off the banks of the Seine can be the beginning of a memorable night.

Cocktails with a View

When the weather in Paris is nice and the sun starts to set down, there are few better ways to start a romantic weekend in Paris than from above, cocktail in hand, gazing across the lights and landmarks that define the city. Check out our favorite rooftop bars in Paris, with something for every type.

 

A night ride for two on a vintage Citroën 2CV

A fabulous thing to do in Paris at night is a ride for two in the unique Citroën 2CV. Drive in style through Paris and Montmartre and enjoy Paris iconic monuments at night. The tour comes with a bottle of champagne and a fun and informative driver so you just need to sit in the back, relax and enjoy Paris with your loved one.

 

Say “I love you” in three different languages

Check out the Love Wall

Head to Montmartre in the 18th Arrondissement of Paris for an original declaration of love. The Wall of Love is a huge mural located at Square Jehan Rictus, Place des Abbesses in the neighborhood of Montmartre. The wall reproduces 311 times the words “I love you” in 250 different languages, including all the common languages and other rare or forgotten dialects like Navajo, Bambara or esperanto. You could, for example, choose three languages different than yours and surprise your other half with an original and polyglot love declaration. Perhaps, you can practice the pronunciation beforehand with the voice option of google translator. Here’re some examples:

T’estimo, in Catalan
Ti amo, in Italian
Ich liebe dich, in German

 

Take a selfie in front of Le Coeur de Paris at Porte de Clignancourt

Paris has a new beating heart! Le Coeur de Paris is a beautiful sculpture by Joana Vasconcelos located at Porte de Clignancourt, just in front of the exit of the Parisian Metro. This huge sculpture inaugurated on Saint Valentine’s day 2019 is made of 3.800 shiny azulejos (Portuguese little tiles) hand-painted by Portuguese craftsmen. The inhabitants and associations of this world-neighborhood asked the artist for a universal symbol which could resonate with everybody and voilà! a huge turning heart spreading love everywhere in the neighborhood.

If you are in the corner don’t hesitate to pay a visit to Paris’ Beating Heart and take a selfie with your other half.
