Where: Champ de Mars, 5 Avenue Anatole

We've all heard of the city's iconic landmark. You may have seen it in movies while browsing through pictures or reading about it in books. Despite the cliché, nothing compares to actually seeing the lattice tower up close and personal.

Complete the experience  by climbing more than 1,000 feet of height with your loved one. Up in the air, you will be treated to the enchanting beauty of the skyline and gorgeous views of the city. Cap off the night with a sweet kiss which should seal you and your lover’s unforgettable trip to the tower’s pinnacle.

With its sweet spot and magical ambience, it's the perfect place to propose, don't you think?


Les Jardins du Trocadéro

Where: 16th arrondissement of Paris

With its great romantic edifice matched by even more romantic surroundings, you and your sweetheart can find just the right spot in the garden to make out and snuggle while the Eiffel Tower stands nearby.

At night is the best time to head over to the garden. You can take the metro, find a bench then wait for the perfect timing when the Eiffel Tower lights up and spreads its magic for ten minutes. Once the iconic landmark sparkles, gently grab your loved one’s hand and seal your love with one passionate kiss.

Day 2:Le Mur Des Je T’aime

Hearing your beloved say "I love you" in different languages will make any heart go aflutter. But even better is to take your sweetheart to Le Mur Des Je T’aime, also known as The Wall of "I Love You's" in beautiful Paris.

With "I Love You" in 250 different languages scattered across the wall, you won't need to open your mouth and say the words. The wall will speak for you.

Day 3: Jardin du Luxembourg

Where: 6e Arrondissement

Considered as the second largest park and probably the most popular in Paris, Jardin du Luxembourg is another hotspot for lovers. It has been a haven of romance for centuries. Classic statues, calming fountains and colorful flowerbeds fill the place. Even classic lovers have strolled along its beautifully manicured landscape.

Did you know that Napoleon and Josephine used to frequent the place? Yes, they did! Might as well follow in their footsteps and grab this chance to explore and luxuriate in the garden’s romantic appeal.

Day 4: Pont des Arts

Where: Pont des Arts, Paris

If the Eiffel tower is the most romantic tower in the city, the Pont des Arts is dubbed the most romantic bridge. With the stunning Seine River as a backdrop, it's no surprise that it is another favorite lover's spot in Paris.

Strolling along the pedestrian bridge while holding hands and enjoying views of the Ile de la Cite, Louvre and Notre Dame should be on every couple's bucket list. Countless lovelocks also adorn the place. After attaching your own padlock of love, you can head over to the streets and enjoy hearing musicians playing to the tune of romance.

Day 5: Arc de Triomphe, Champs-Élysées

Where: Champs-Élysées

Touted the most beautiful avenue (hum not sure about it...) and famous street in Paris, strolling down Champs-Élysées is another must-do experience for couples. Dine in one of the avenue's famous restaurants or treat your loved one to a shopping spree in the many designer stores.

At night, the boulevard is lit up inducing a more romantic vibe. After dinner, you can close the day with a tour to the Arc de Triomphe enjoying a set of unique and beautiful views of the city.

Day 6: La Tour d'Argent

Toast to lasting love by picking from the restaurant's 500,000-bottle wine cellar selection. And of course, indulge in the ultimate French cuisine experience like no other.The restaurant has its own private duck farm. Ordering its famous canard au sang dish means you'll also get the duck's serial number.

  • Please do not encourage people to attach more locks to the bridges. Not exaggerating but one of them have cracks already on its structure due to the weight, and it’ll be a matter of time before it breaks unless the authority change the bridge fitting. 🙁

  • But this is not a tradition of Paris! Pont des Arts used to be a wonderful spot to have picnic on a sunny day, or to admire Ile de la Cite, or to watch the sunset in the presence of the Eiffel Tower. It is a lovely bridge without the locks. And these are the timeless traditions. Not the locks. The locks barely came to life in the last 4-5 years.

    Nowadays, I don’t even go over there as much anymore. Too many people putting on locks, and then there’s a bunch of (illegal?) immigants selling locks in a hush-hush manner (i.e. retrieve lock from coat after asking if couples want to buy one and negotiated the price), not to mention the constant scammer coming by asking if you’ve lost your massive gold ring. Oufff…

    • Many touristic spots are spoiled by scammers (e.g: Montmartre and Eiffel Tower), it is a pretty recent issue (when I was young it was not so dramatic). Parisians don’t go to the spot I mentionned (“too touristics”). It is a tradition for some tourists to put some love locks. My only issue is when people throw their key in the river…There is tons of nice bridge without this issue. It is just your personal choice. I just check what people think about it on some websites. It seems to drive more people on this bridge but some people dislike it as well.

      • Speaking to my Parisian friends as well as non-Parisian French friends who have live in Paris for a decade or more, they all agree that the lock is not a tradition of Paris, but an invented tradition.

        I used to also think it’s up the the individual, as long as they not pollute the water with the keys, but it breaks my heart to see structural damages to the bridges (be it Pont des Arts or others that have been populated by these locks when they couldn’t find spots to put them on Pont des Arts) and even some of the nicer bridges could not escape the problem, including Pont Alexandre III! (Yes, people put locks on the sculptures when they can’t find railings – https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8328/8118364823_eef05bf8ea_z.jpg)

        “Touristy” spots do get populated by scammers etc but that was not an issue on Pont des Arts until people get encouragements to put the locks and flock to the bridge in large numbers. Many of us miss our picnic and sunset watching days from Pont des Arts (without being surrounded by lock-bound couples).

        • A tradition as always an origin no? There is so many things that people resist change (Parisian did not want to have the Eiffel Tower!). A tradition does not need to be old or created by locals. I missed the Samaritaine Restaurant (Department Store close for years now) but it is not such a big deal. There is so many places/bridges to do a picnic! I am not a big fan when people look back at the past. Moreover The City Hall can tackle this issue if they really want. However I agree that putting padlock on statue is totally uncool. But if we start to think like you do, we should probably shut down all the shop (Franchise) in the Champs Elysées and keep the city like a minority of Parisian would like to be.

  • Well said, you replied every comment without being biased. Am surprised ^_^ If only i met more Parisian like you. But, i think it will be nice if they put more police at those tourist spots. I dont want what had happened to me at Sacre Coeur happen to someone else…
