1. Guided tour
Montmartre is a breathtaking part of Paris, simply a must-go destination for you and the one you love. The area is packed with photo opportunities. And if you prefer having an itinerary, on a guided tour you’ll learn all about this most romantic of cities. Be sure to check out Musée de la Vie Romantique, a museum with a beautiful garden.
There are countless places in Paris tailor-made for a romantic picnic. Pack up your pastries and wine and head to the Seine, or sit ensconced in one another’s company in the Champ de Mars, the huge grassy park in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower.
3. Paris passages
The passages snaking through the city are like streets, but enclosed. You’ll encounter hidden eateries, merchants purveying wondrous goods, and other couples enjoying the mystique! One of the finest passages is Galerie Vivienne.
4. The views
You could try ‘seeing’ the city as you may never have seen it before. Rather than wandering around it and picking a spot, consider getting up high for a dazzling vista of light. The department store Printemps actually has an amazing cafe overlooking Paris, and Le Perchoir Marais is a bar famous for its stunning views.
The restaurants in the French capital range greatly in cuisine, atmosphere, and of course price. There are popular, world-famous eateries, and hidden gems among them, too. One of the most exquisite is Restaurant Pétrelle.
