Your romantic weekend in Paris near Eiffel tower
If Paris is considered one of the most romantic cities in the world, it’s because it’s the perfect setting for a romantic stroll. Between historical monuments with dazzling architecture, romantic dinners at the most beautiful restaurants, and walks hand in hand along the Seine, Paris is the ideal destination for a romantic weekend.
Visit Montmartre with your other half
A romantic weekend in Paris will never be truly successful if you don’t plan to come to Montmartre. This charming district of the 18th arrondissement is a must-see. Lovers love to stroll through the cobbled streets of this village-like corner of Paris and soak up the bohemian atmosphere.
The walk will guide you peacefully to the Sacré-Coeur basilica, which you can also reach with the little train of Montmartre, from where you will enjoy a magnificent view of the roofs of Paris.
At random, you will discover the Place des Abbesses and its Wall of “I love you”, so symbolic and so romantic. Not far from there, the famous Place du Tertre plunges you into a more artistic atmosphere, where the portrait artists will allow you to bring back a small souvenir of your romantic escapade.
The Museum of Romantic Life, installed in the former home of the painter Ary Scheffer, keeps the magic of the place alive, while the restaurant Mère Catherine ensures a romantic evening with a view of Paris. If you are looking for a more typical address of the old Montmartre, it is at La Bonne Franquette that you will have to reserve a table.
A romantic walk in the Marais
In the 4th arrondissement, the Marais district is also one of the must-see places to visit with your partner. Mostly known for its trendy and festive side, this historical Parisian district is also full of charm. Along the narrow streets, the old monuments and the private mansions make the beauty of the place. You will then have the opportunity to cross and visit sites more romantic than the others: the House of Victor Hugo, the place of Vosges...
When it comes to romantic restaurants, the Marais district is not short of good addresses. You can impress your loved one at the starred gastronomic restaurant Qui plume la lune, unless you prefer the more relaxed and cosy atmosphere of the Parisian bistro Café Charlot.
Take a romantic stroll through the covered passages of Paris
Did you know that in the 19th century, the city of Paris had more than 70 covered passages? These small galleries, intended to protect the well-to-do Parisians from the world and the bad weather, are only 21 today, but one always finds there a secret and charming atmosphere, favourable with the romantic stroll.
In the 2nd arrondissement, the covered passages take the form of shopping alleys elegantly covered with glass. You will be able to walk there hand in hand, and to impregnate you of this typical atmosphere of the Belle Époque. Far from the hustle and bustle of the city, these small passages are ideal for strolling and the gourmet addresses are always an opportunity to experience a moment of relaxation and pleasure.
Among the covered passages, we note the Galerie Vivienne and the passage des Panoramas. If Paris 2 shelters many of them, one also finds many covered passages in the 9th district.
Walk the paths of the Champ-de-Mars park
At the foot of the Eiffel Tower, the Champ-de-Mars park covers nearly 25 hectares and invites you to relax in a magical setting. Under the benevolent eye of the Iron Lady, the largest green space in Paris is composed of immense lawns interspersed with perpendicular paths. A real invitation to relax and stroll.
Then, the winding paths lead you into the nooks and crannies of the park, with the French garden on one side and the English garden on the other. The whole is laid out on a green space planted with trees, where birds, ducks and swans flourish at our side without even seeming to notice us.
As you walk through the park, you will come across various bronze statues of the greatest names in French history, including the bust of Gustave Eiffel, the famous engineer who created the Eiffel Tower. It is also an opportunity to discover the history of the park, which opened in 1780, after having seen a succession of vegetable gardens, vineyards, and a maneuvering field for the French army.
Open 7 days a week, day and night, the park is ideal for evening strolls in love, and perhaps you will have the chance to cross paths with an owl.
Climb to the top of the Eiffel Tower
What could be more romantic than to climb to the top of the Eiffel Tower, to admire the view of Paris, and look together in the same direction? Then take one of the 4 elevators to stop at the different floors, or choose to live the unique experience of climbing the tower by the stairs. On the first floor, the glass floor offers an incredible sensation, while on the second floor, the view of Paris begins to emerge. At the top, the noise of the city fades away, and you are cut off from the world, living a unique adventure with your loved one.
And for a romantic dinner with a panoramic view of Paris, you can choose between the Madame Brasserie, on the first floor, or the gastronomic restaurant Jules Verne, on the second floor.
