12 Romantic Things To Do In Paris
There are countless ways to be romantic in Paris, the foremost of which is just being in the city itself. Visiting the city of love in month earmarked for romance could work out to be more clever than corny as it is also off-peak travel season.
This means slower walks along the Seine River, watching the sunset with a smaller crowd and not having to rush through an intimate dinner.
But Paris can be chilly in February so woman with drive has put together 12 ways to warm up.
#1: Enjoy high tea in the grandeur of Hotel George V at the Four Seasons while surrounded by piano music and gorgeous blooms. Serious tea enthusiasts will appreciate Mariage Frères where they blend the tea themselves.
#2: What is romance without a sweet treat from the city’s best chocolatiers? Choose from the 60 exotic flavoured bonbons at Pierre Marcolini or among the contemporary flavoured pralines and ganaches at Patrick Roger.
#3: Warm up with hot chocolate served with Chantilly cream at La Jacobine. For Paris’ best chocolat chaud head over to Angelina’s, a favourite meeting spot and a place “to be seen”.
#4: Make dinner reservations at 58 Tour Eiffel or Jules Verne on the first and second floor of the Eiffel Tower respectively. If you cannot get a seat, Ciel de Paris on top the Montparnasse Tower, has a stunning view of the Eiffel Tower and the city below.
#5: Rug up and go for a loop on the Ferris wheel on Palace de la Concorde for a 360-degree view of Paris.
#7: Indulge in delicious pastries at Pierre Hermé and Des Gâteaux du Pain. The former is famous for its uniquely flavoured macarons while the latter is hailed for its crusty loaves and flamboyant cakes.
#8: Step away from Parisian streets and take a stroll in Montmartre instead. Retrace the footsteps of Renoir, Picasso and Degas, and find out why this village has the most breathtaking views of the city.
#9: Buy tickets to a performance at the Palais Garnier, one of the most beautiful buildings in Paris with a Grand Foyer inspired by Versailles’ famous Hall of Mirrors. The performances command equal awe.
#10: Hop on board the Bustronome, a luxury mobile gourmet restaurant that will drive past the city’s major attractions over the course of your dinner.
#12: Watch the sunset from the observation deck at the Arc de Triomphe. Stand at the summit of 234 steps and watch the city fall under a cloak of twilight.
