Top 10 Paris attractions for couples

There are so many things to do in Paris. The city of lights offers a huge amount of attractions for tourist of all kinds: Families, backpackers, young couples, elderly couples and more. Here is a list of 10 recommended attractions for couples who seek for a romantic vacation in Paris.

1. The Eiffel Tower
The Eiffel Tower- The most famous Parisian symbol, by some sources the most visited tourist attraction in the world. There is nothing more romantic than to sit with your loved one on the grass of the Trocadero gardens (or any other garden that has a view of the Eiffel) and to look quietly at this giant monument. It is much recommended to go up the tower and look at Paris from above. Try to catch a romantic photo of you and the Eiffel or maybe of both of you kissing with the background of Paris. (kiss each other, not the background).

Another great romantic thing to do is to look at the Eiffel tower from your hotel. If you want to see the Eiffel tower from your hotel room, click here .

2. La Louvre
Not just for art lovers. It is very romantic to stroll around the many sculptures and paintings of the museum. I'm not sure if it sounds romantic, but I swear it is. Just imagine: you stop and look at one paintings. Then your partner starts noticing some minor details. He\she start to think and then he\she understands what the painting is all about. He\she explains the meaning of the painting to you. Then you think to yourself: "wow, how the hell did he\she saw it? She\he is so smart.." isn’t that romantic?

3. Montmartre
For me, this is the best place for couples to hang out in Paris. Just go there before sunset, stroll around the narrow streets, ask a Parisian painter to paint your girlfriend or wife (usually it’s the girl, isn’t it? Perhaps I'm wrong), visit the amazing Basilica Sacre-Couer and stay for dinner at one of the small and cozy restaurants. This is what Paris is all about.

4. Champs-Elysees
The famous boulevard that leads to Arc de Triumph. It is very beautiful and the atmosphere is great. You can go shopping or eat something at day time or at night.

5. Chateau de Versailles
Before taking the train to Versailles Palace, go to the nearest supermarket and buy some groceries for a picnic.
You know, a baguette, some cheese, a small bottle of wine.
When you get to the palace go to the gardens first. The gardens are amazing. Position yourself near the lake and make your picnic there. Perfect for a Saturday morning. After the picnic you can rent bicycles and travel around the park or get inside the palace.

6. Notre Dame
Notre Dame- the famous cathedral. Get inside, go up and get some great views of paris with the Eiffel tower. Don’t be scare by the Gargoyles, they are friendly.
