You’ve planned a romantic getaway to Paris and now you want to keep things interesting for your partner. You’ve selected the best dinners and tours, but you’re still looking for ways to keep the romance alive. So here are some of the best picture-perfect locations in Paris to plant a perfect smooch your significant other!
Take a walk around the monumental square and head toward the Eiffel Tower and you’ll come across some park benches on the Jardins du Trocadéro. The gardens are lined with pools, sparkling fountains, and sunbathers. There, you can take a seat, enjoy the view, or steal a kiss or two within sight one of the most famous monuments in the world.
This island is in the middle of the Seine and is the perfect place for romantic strolls and kisses. The island is quiet and peaceful with gracious mansions lining one-way streets, but you can find a café and two ice cream parlors for something to share. The bridge connecting the Île de la Cite and the Ile Saint-Louis gives you the perfect view of the river and the demure streets along the shore.
Pont Alexandre III
It’s best to visit this bridge when the sun is setting so you can maximize the romance! It’s one of the most beautiful landmarks in Paris with views of the Eiffel Tower and the Grand Palais on one side while the other side faces Les Invalides. Seal the kiss while the sun sets over the Seine.
The Coulée verte René-Dumont, or “Promenade Plantée,” is an elevated walkway that’s similar to the High Line in New York. It’s an exceptional place to find romance during the spring and summer when the blooming flowers add a touch of charm to the whole experience. It’s usually peaceful and a great place to grab a few minutes away from the crowds. If you opt to visit in the winter make sure to bundle up, or bring someone and hold them close to keep warm.
This neighborhood is located on a hill high above the city, full of nooks and hideaways making it a perfect place to steal away for a romantic moment. The Sacré-Coeur Basilica crowns the summit of Montmartre, and the top of the white dome can be seen from around the city. You need to visit Sacré-Coeur if you’re in this neighborhood and take in the view of the entire city.
Place des Vosges
This is Paris’s oldest planned pedestrian square. Enjoy some chocolate from Carette and take a stroll under the arches at Place des Vosges. If you can time it right, you can be there at the same time as a singer or harp player. Let the singer serenade your love while you give them a kiss!
