Paris for couples – the Paris travel guide

In this awe-inspiring city which has been the draw for hundreds of artists over the centuries, all that is romantic, prevails. From the sweeping boulevards of the elegant VI arrondissement to a romantic moonlight cruise on the Seine, Paris is undeniably the most romantic city in the world. From a picnic under the Eiffel tower, a wander round the abundant treasures of the Louvre or a coffee in a typical Parisian café watching the world go by. However, it is when the sun goes down, that this city really comes to life. No matter what your tastes, Paris’ colourful nightlife offers something for everyone.

For those seeking a breath of fresh air and relaxation from the hustle and bustle of the city Paris boasts a wide range of parks and green spaces which can be enjoyed at any time of the year. The Jardin de Luxembourg, located in the 6th arrondissement, is at its finest in the autumn months when the park transforms into a splendid palate of russet and crimson. Head out of the city to marvel at the splendor of The Sun King (Louis XIV)’s ostentatious Palace of Versailles with the famous and recently restored gallery of mirrors and large formal gardens. These gardens are some of the most extensive in the world and in spite of the millions of visitors which the chateau receives every year it is surprisingly easy to find a quiet corner to yourselves, to sit back and take in the exuberant setting. During the summer months there are regular classical music concerts and musical fountain displays which coordinate well-known classical music of the period to the movement of the great water features of Versailles.

Of course no Paris travel guide would be complete without mention of Gustav Eiffel’s ubiquitous Tower. This vast structure is more than just a proud icon for the city and arguably for the whole of France, but a breathtaking attraction giving sublime views across the city. Whether mounted by the energetic up 386 steps to the highest platform of the structure or in one of the lifts, this ultimate attraction should not be missed on a trip to the city.

For a spot of opulence and unrivaled elegance, stroll down the Champs Elysées to the La Durée tea room, a regular haunt of the Paris aristocracy since the 19th century where you cannot leave without sampling a range of brightly coloured macaroons: the house speciality. Alternatively, for a taste of Brittany head for la rue Montparnasse (between boulevard de Montparnasse and rue Edgar Quinet) which is brimming with cosy crepe restaurants. Whether visiting Paris on a honeymoon or on a romantic mini-break, every Paris travel guide would agree that it is the ideal destination for couples during any season of the year.
