Romantic Paris

Updated on March 12, 2011

Paris is a city that calls to the senses, it screams to be seen, to be tasted, heard, touched, and smelled. From romantic rides along the Seine to the beauty of the landscapes it is enchanting. You can find native Frenchmen relaxing in cafes, discussing the many uses of garlic. Paris is nothing else, if not French.

Paris is a great city to move around in. You can street browse for hours on end and never get bored. You can sit in cafes and relax, or shop until the moon comes up and then shop some more. It's lack of open spaces is made up for with beautiful formal gardens, with pavement and pathways running alongside the river Seine. Along the way there are many hidden and unexpected havens. Anywhere you go in Paris you find historical landmarks, with great buildings and architectural wonders that constantly remind you of the pride and grandeur that is Paris.

Some of the notable tourist attractions in Paris are:

  • Musee du Quai Branly
  • Place de Pigalle
  • Arc de Triomphe
  • Musee d’Orsay (Museum of Orsay)
  • Parc Zoologique de Paris
  • Musee National Picasso 

You can walk with your lover, arm in arm, to the Isle Saint Louis (which is close to Notre Dame). This tiny little island near the Seine is full of cute little boutiques and restaurants, as well as nightclubs full of locals. You can have some 'Berthillon', a delicious tasting ice cream that you will only find in this little small neighborhood. If you love Jazz, then they feature some of the best jazz in the world. The jazz is good whether you're in one of the hottest nightclubs around or just a smokey old hole-in-the-wall. You can sip wine, listen to jazz, and enjoy a romantic evening with your significant other.

The Luxembourg Gardens are great for couples and sit adjacent to the very breathtaking Luxembourg Castle. If you kiss in Paris, then French kissing is required. All around Paris you see couples kissing on some bridge or on the banks of the Seine. They wine and dine and enjoy each other's company, and get swept away by all the romance and beauty. Just taking a walk along Champs Elysees will bring you to some very nice little cafes that will captivate you and set the tone for your evening.

Paris has long been known as a city for lovers. It's easy to see why when you're actually there. I'm sure you've heard of romance being in the air, well, in Paris that's definitely true. You can become absorbed in the romantic atmosphere and caught up in the love spell that is Paris. You can walk for hours around Paris, and soak it all up. There are winding streets that take you on lovely journeys, to medieval Marais, to the popular overgrown cemetery known as Pere Lachaise, which is the home of Chopin, Oscar Wilde, and Jim Morrison. Paris is indeed the city for lovers. If you bring your lover to Paris, it will be one of the most romantic times of your life. If you come alone, don’t worry, love is definitely in the air, and you surely won’t be alone for long.

    No pictures? Everyone I know that has been to Paris says it smells really bad. What did you think of the smell?

    The French were wonderful to me. I speak some French and I always asked if they had a minute before I asked my questions. Otherwise, you may get the treatment a English speaking New Yorker got. He walked up to a French guy in Paris grabbing the guys sleeve. He asked: Hey, buddy do you know where the Eiffle Tower is. The French guy answered 'in Paris.' See, the American was being rude.
