Your guide to the most romantic things to do in Paris
Unofficially coined the ‘city of love,’ there’s no shortage of romantic things to do in Paris for couples. From an early-morning stroll to an unforgettable night at the theatre, here’s the best of the city to enjoy together.
Take a stroll through Saint-Germain-des-Prés

To truly experience the romance of Paris, head to the sixth arrondissement, in the heart of the artistic and literary district of Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Surrounding boulevard Saint-Germain is a channel of winding streets (Rue du Four and Rue Bonaparte are must-visits), all fizzing with bustling markets, cafés, art galleries, studios and historic universities. Long adored by famous figureheads, Simone de Beauvoir, Jean-Paul Sartre and Ernest Hemingway, follow in their footsteps on a romantic outing here.

AMI Paris

Tonal big adc shirt

The "je t'aime" wall at Place des Abbesses, in the garden of Square Jehan Rictus. This unique mural shares the message of love in over 250 languages and covers over 40 square metres.

Get lost in Montmartre

Amongst a tangle of cobbled lanes and a flurry of flowers lie staircases wrapped with wrought-iron railings and the studios of a thousand inspired artists, painters and illustrators encased in elegant buildings. Behind a blur of caricaturists tucked in at their easels, far-reaching high up on the hill, the Sacré-Coeur in all its splendour. Montmartre is just as romantic as it is described, making it the perfect place to spend a slow afternoon arm-in-arm.

Bask in the beauty of Parisian parks and gardens

Almost 80% of the capital's current green spaces were created between 1850 and 1870, on the initiative of Napoleon III. This was the beginning of the influence of English-style gardens, which – with their winding paths and irregular shapes – were uncommon in Paris at the time. Perfectly maintained, they’re idyllic for a hand-in-hand stroll, a soothing stop on a bench or an open-air café visit. Jardin du Luxembourg, Parc Monceau, Parc des Buttes Chaumont, Parc Montsouris...which will it be?

Parc Montsouris has plenty to while away a day. At over 15 hectares, there’s a variety of ecosystems and species of birds, 1,400 trees and a traditional bandstand. Even better, it’s off-the-beaten-track and maintains a countryside aesthetic which feels far from the city you’re in.

Fusing outstanding collections with a magnificent garden, Musée Rodin is one of the most romantic museums in Paris. Here, you’ll find the work of the great sculptor Auguste Rodin, just a stone's throw from Les Invalides, in the seventh arrondissement.

Immerse yourself in museum culture

There's nothing like the emotion that a work of art can evoke. Paris abounds in magnificent museums, beyond the architectural and sculptural marvels on every street corner. To complete your romantic tour of the capital, devote a few hours to one. You'll be spoilt for choice; from the rich collections of Musée du Louvre to the illustrious Musée d'Orsay, housed in a former railway station, there’s so many to explore.

Beauty around every corner at the Louvre
Watch the sun set from the Champ de Mars

Nothing quite exudes an air of romance like watching the warm glow of the sun trickle down the city’s most grandiose buildings, all from a unique vantage point. For the best views, we recommend a seat on the Trocadero esplanade, where you can watch the sun set over the Eiffel Tower with the Champ de Mars glistening in the background. There’s a lawn to enjoy a picnic, or, if you’re feeling spontaneous, plenty of options for a candlelit dinner nearby.
