It’s true that a busy schedule doesn’t leave enough time for lovers to enjoy each other’s company. The demands of work and family commitments don’t often leave enough time for partners to connect at a deeper level. So when life threatens to take over your relationship, it’s the perfect opportunity to break away and focus on your partner. And when you want to rekindle your romance, what better place than the seductive backdrop of Paris? Evoke just the right emotions and make your trip the most memorable memory of your life.
Though the whole city has a romantic aura, there are some places that can ignite that fire again. With your partner by your side, visit some of these places in the City of Love and indulge yourselves in public displays of affection. For some people it might seem cliché but the air of Paris is for lovers. So let’s get started and help you bring back the romance in your life.
Pont des Arts
Although there are numerous romantic places in Paris, nothing can beat the sights from Pont des Arts. It is the bridge between 1st and 6th arrondissements, links the Louvre to the south bank of the river and also known for the tradition of lovers attaching padlocks to the railings. Tourists used to write or engrave their names on the padlocks, attach them to the railings and then throw the key into the river. Though the practise is not followed any longer, Pont des Arts still is one of the most romantic places in Paris.
The bridge provides a spectacular view of the surrounding area. The 360 panorama of the most famous Paris buildings such as Notre Dame and the Louvre among others makes the perfect backdrop for a romantic day out. As you gaze upon the sights you feel your heart fill with love. At night the view turns magical with distant lights illuminating the sky and the reflections dancing on La Seine. You’ll be left breathless. Just make sure you catch your breath enough to give your partner a romantic kiss to complete the picture.
For an enchanting time in Paris just head over to the beautiful Luxembourg gardens. The French style gardens are decorated with geometric lines and shapes made up of flowers, grass, and even ponds. You’ll surely be mesmerised by the beautiful setting. When you want to spend a relaxing day out with your partner and enjoy the elements of nature, Luxembourg gardens are the best place for romantic walks in Paris.
The rest of the park has more of an English setting with huge trees and winding paths so lose your way in the parks and relish the feeling of being alone with your partner. If you are able to take your eyes off your partner, there are more than 100 statues to feast your eyes upon. Walk among the fountains and take pictures at the architectural highlight, the Davioud Pavilion. And make sure you visit the De Medici fountain!
Take a stroll down the cobbled streets of the Latin Quarter and you’ll feel like you’ve stepped into the past. Though many parts of the area are quite modern, you’ll find a fair share of establishments that still retain a touch of the past.
Well hidden in the heart of Latin Quarter, one of the most romantic places in Paris is Le Coupe-Chou. It is a maze of seven candlelit rooms that go through a vine-clad townhouse. Built in the 17th Century, the townhouse has the perfect aura of romance with beamed ceilings and antique decorations that adds to the charm. It’s the perfect place to wine and dine with your partner and the setting evokes the right emotions and makes for a great place to rekindle your love in Paris.

This gives the park quite a unique characteristic with the impressive steepness and frequent change in the level of the landscape which gives Parc des Buttes-Chaumont an exotic charm.
