Best Romantic Spots in Paris

The capital of France is traditionally nicknamed as the City of Love. Many couples choose Paris as their honeymoon destination or a romantic getaway. For most people, Paris is associated with the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre. But this city has a lot of romantic places prepared by Brides Dates where you’ll fall in love with your significant other again.

According to locals, this pedestrian bridge is the most romantic spot and the symbol of love in Paris. Love couples come here to watch the Seine River. Earlier, they used to bring padlocks with them, attach them to the railing of the bridge, and throw away the key. Today, this practice is banned, but the bridge is a perfect spot to take a selfie.

Notre-Dame Cathedral

Even if you’re not a fan of architecture, this Gothic cathedral will astound you both from the outside and inside. The towers of the cathedral are open for visitors, so you can climb up 402 steps and get a stunning view of the city. As you go up, look around and check out the grotesque gargoyles, the belfry, and the church bells.

Ile de la Cite

Ile de la Cite is a natural island in the River Seine in the center of Paris. It’s often called the heart of the city. It’s also its ancient part where even Roman ruins can be found. The cathedral of Notre-Dame is actually located on this island. There are many things to explore here but a small green garden right on the western tip of the island is probably one of the most romantic corners in Paris. When you stand on the stone embankment surrounded by water you may feel for a second that you’re standing on the prow of a ship.

Saint-Germain-des-Prés

If you want to feel the ambiance of the Paris that you see in the movies, take a walk in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés. The quarter stretches along the Seine and is arguably a posh place. Many famous artists, writers, and philosophers wandered about this quarter searching for inspiration.

Luxembourg Gardens



Located between the Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the Latin Quarter, the Luxembourg Gardens is a 25-acre garden established in 1612 as a part of the Luxembourg Palace. It consists of French gardens and English gardens separated by a large pond and a forest. Colorful flowerbeds, tree-lined promenades, and an old fountain attract a lot of visitors to the park.

Montmartre

Feel the joie de vivre everywhere in Montmartre, a city district perched on the hill. Its atmosphere is different from the rest of Paris. The spirit of bohemian life is in the air here. Tourists flock to Montmartre to enjoy a breathtaking view of Paris from the top of the Basilica of Sacre-Coeur. There are a lot of attractions but don’t miss the chance to visit the Musée de Montmartre and the neighboring 19-century garden. Explore the garden, find a staircase, walk down it, and enjoy a fascinating view of Clos Montmartre vineyard.
