Romantique Paris! What to do in the city of love with your loved one!
Places to take your loved one
1. Cour du Commerse Saint Andre MAP
Go for a lovers stroll down the oldest passage in Paris; and the most enchanting magical and romantic.
Be mesmerized by the old-world feel of this incredible small and uneven (watch your step) cobblestone street lined with quaint cafes and restaurants.
Discover Procope Paris' oldest restaurant MAP - and decadent dessert salon 'Un Dimanche a Paris' MAP - where you can indulge in chocolate treats and chocolate cocktails (yes its a chocolatier boutique salon).
2. Musee Jacquemart-Andre MAP
For art lovers, there couldnt be a more romantic Musum than the Musee Jacquemart-Andre Museum. A glorious mansion housing 15th to 18th Century art.
The museum was created from the private home of Édouard André (1833–1894) and Nélie Jacquemart (1841-1912) to display the art they collected during their lives.
And a delightful cafe/high tea salon serving teas, coffees, cakes, wines, champagnes and lunch.
Open: 10am - 6pm daily
Tip: FREE on the first Sunday of every month
3. Literary lovers - Dining with Heminway
Enjoy dinner at La Capannina - MAP
Situated across from the very steps where Woody Allen filmed his time-traveling scenes for Midnight in Paris, this no-fuss Italian restaurant is extremely charming and with very pleasing prices. After dinner, make sure to wave to Ernest Hemingway’s old window at
Address: 74 rue du Cardinal Lemoine. MAP
Open: 10am - 2am
4. Chaffeured Romance
Take a romantic Citroen Vintage car tour (day or night) of Paris. You get a Frenchy wearing a striped Breton shirt showing up at your B&B or apartment to take you on an open-roof tour of Paris showing you all the secret spots of the city, or you can request things you’d like to see.
All the drivers have an encyclopedic knowledge of Paris and speak several languages.
Prices: From 179euro
5. Pere La Chaise MAP
Trust the city of romance to have made its largest cemetery not in the least bit spooky but rather, irresistibly romantic. Père Lachaise is like a mini city with winding pathways with their own street signs and names, and beautiful tombs (Jim Morrison, Edith Piaf, Oscar Wilde, Chopin and Marcel Proust to name a few are buried here). Strolling hand in hand with your other half, you’ll start, rather bizarrely, hoping one day you can be buried here with the love of your life.
Open: 16 Rue du Repos, 75020 Paris MAP
