Every couple looks at romance differently and while some may think of romantic dinners for two and strolls along the city streets, others may think that romance is visiting castles and eating picnic lunches and dinners. The only thing that every couple can agree on is that Paris is the most romantic city of the entire country.
The Temple of Love sits on an island in the middle of the lake in the Bois de Vincennes. This temple was built in 1860 and is not as well-known as the other “love” temple that is located in Buttes-Chaumont. Couples can reach the temple by crossing a bridge or they can rent a small boat and row over to their destination.
Every evening, hundreds of people gather to dance along the Seine in the fifth arrondissement. While many couples will be happy to join in, those who are not as sure about their dancing moves can simply sit down to watch while enjoying a bottle of delicious French wine.
Pere Lachaise is a cemetery like no other and couples will find themselves walking down memory lane as they venture down the named pathways. Every tomb looks like a little house and couples will be amazed at how many people they know that are buried in this cemetery. The few people who are the most popular include Chopin, Oscar Wilde, Marcel Proust, and Jim Morrison.
There is no bad time to climb to the top of the Eiffel Tower, but for the ultimate in romance, many couples decide to wait until the evening hours when the sun has set and the moon is rising. Every night, the Eiffel Tower lights up at the top of the hour and whether couples are up in the tower or below on the ground, it is a sight to see. Once up high in the tower, couples will be able to see panoramic views of the city which includes the famous landmarks.
No one can visit Paris without stopping to visit the Louvre. This museum is humongous and filled with thousands of elaborate pieces of art. One of the most popular pieces in the entire museum is the Mona Lisa, although visitors will find themselves mesmerized by almost everything else that they see. It is recommended that everyone plans their visit prior to entering the museum, so that no one misses out on a piece of art that they really want to see. The reason for this is that it can potentially take days to walk around and see every individual piece of art and it is easy to miss one or two works of art by simply turning the wrong way.
Planning a romantic trip to France is easy once couples decide on where they want to go in the country. Many people will stay in Paris the entire time and others will venture to other cities and only spend a couple of days in the city. Either way is fine as long as the couples agree on what they want to do and see and spend time together remembering why they fell in love in the first place.
