Is there any better place for a romantic vacation than Paris? Cobbled streets, beautiful sights, amazing wine and that sexy French atmosphere definitely put Paris at the top of destinations made for couples. We know that lovebirds don’t need anything else besides their nest to be happy, but here are a few things couples can do in Paris that will boost the romance even more.
Have a romantic picnic
Tasty food, beautiful views and you and your loved one… what more can you ask for? Head down to the Canal Saint-Martin, order some food from the nearby street and take a light walk to discover one of the many surrounding lovers’ picnic spots. It’s amazing how little you need to be perfectly content in Paris!
Have fun at Buttes Chaumont
Another super romantic thing all couples must do is stroll through Buttes Chaumont, a huge park perched above Paris. It’s wild and big, which means you’ll have no problems finding a cozy little space just for you two. The top of the park offers amazing views of the city and the best sunset you can imagine. Très romantique!
Say I Love You at the top of the Eiffel Tower
This is simply a must. The Eiffel Tower was a witness to countless engagements, proposals and marriages, like it’s covered with a magical romance aura that makes everyone feel crazy in love. It’s even better at night when 20,000 bulbs light up the sky and make the tower sparkle. You can enjoy your view from the ground or book a spot at the top-floor Champagne Bar and enjoy some bubbly as you whisper sweet nothings to each other.
Sail the river Seine
If you just want to sit in each other’s arms and let the city prepare a little fashion show for you, go on a river Seine cruise. It’s one of the best things to do in Paris, since you can just sit back and relax as its best sights flow by you. Bring some snacks and drinks or book a romantic dinner cruise with Champagne and dance. It will be a memory you’ll cherish forever.
Take a French cuisine cooking class
French are known for their amazing cooking skills, so why not spend a super fun afternoon learning how to make some of their delicacies. You’re guaranteed plenty of laughs and stolen kisses as you ruin the third batch of macarons! Later, you can enjoy the fruits of your labor or just head to the nearest restaurant and let professionals take care of you.
Watch an old movie
Movies are another thing French are great at, so why not catch a masterpiece at Studio 28, Paris’ oldest cinema. It screens vintage and modern films, so you can spend two hours in the dark with your SO and enjoy charming storylines and beautiful French language. If you want something closer to home, like English movies from the Golden Age of Hollywood, Grand Action cinema is your choice. It’s equally cute and romantic, but you’ll have a much more familiar repertoire to choose from.
Ride down Champs-Élysées
Most girls dreamed about riding at the back of a red scooter down Champs-Élysées. Well, you can make your dream a reality if you hire one for a day. Let the Eiffel Tower slowly come into view as you coast along the Seine. It’s much more romantic and fun than taking a subway, especially on a sunny and warm day. Explore the streets, stop for crepes and let your heart guide you. It’s never a bad thing to get lost in Paris!
Wander through Montmartre’s Streets
If you want to experience the Paris of the movies like Moulin Rouge, Amelie or Midnight in Paris, this is where you should go. We don’t know what’s in the air of Montmartre’s Streets, but the romance is super strong there. All the streets are picturesque, old and cobbled, spangled with crêperies, bars and small restaurants that have been there for ages. Once you’re full of some delicious French food, head up to the Sacré-Cœur church and soak up the amazing views of the city.
Sip wine on a rooftop
There’s just something so magical when you get to see Paris from the bird’s perspective, so if you have the chance to climb some of the rooftops, don’t miss it! Every Parisian knows a secret residential rooftop that offers privacy, peace and undeniable beauty. So, don’t hesitate to ask someone whether you can borrow or pay to confiscate their roof for a few hours. Bring some wine and cozy blanket so you can curl up and watch as the Paris’ rooftops open stand still just for you.
No matter when you get to see Paris, in the summer or in the winter, it’s always equally charming and cute. So, if you want to make your love stronger (and hotter) than ever, the City of Love is waiting to show you how French do romance!
