Paris well deserves to be called the city of Love. Lovers from all over the world come to Paris to capture the essence of true romanticism and always find a street, a garden, a bridge or a rooftop where they feel time stands still. Here are some recommendations if you look for the perfect spot to kiss your partner while visiting Paris wether on honeymoon or just on an intimate Paris trip :
1. On the River Seine in front of the Eiffel Tower
Cruising the Seine is usually a must-do in Paris and can sometimes be a tourist trap. But there is an alternative to big boats’ cruises that would melt anyone’s heart. Some companies propose private small boat’s rides where you are the only ones on the deck sharing a glass of Champagne. The skipper can also stop on-demand and plan to be in front of the Eiffel Tower right at the moment when it begins to sparkle. What a better setting for a kiss?
2. The garden of the Romantic Life Museum
When you stroll in the South Pigalle (the so-called ‘So-Pi’) district in the 9th arrondissement, you will find a private mansion with two artist workshops and a hidden lovely garden. This property is called «Museum of the Romantic life ». Located rue Chaptal, this museum is the former house of Ary Scheffer, a famous French painter. He used to receive there the artistic Parisian elite. From mid-march to mid-October you can have a drink at the garden tea room. A perfect place for lovers in search for intimacy in the heart of a very lively district.
3. The Terrace of the Raphael hotel
Located avenue Kleber in the elegant 16th arrondissement of Paris, close to the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Elysées, the hotel Raphael was the residence of choice of numerous celebrities, French and international. The Terrace of the hotel is one of the refined and intimate places you wish to stay forever. You can have a cocktail or even a fine dinner on the hotel amazing rooftop with its perched garden, enjoying with your loved one a breathtaking view on Paris’ roofs.
4. The Pont des Arts (Arts’ bridge)
The Pont des Arts is definitely a ‘must-kiss’ place in Paris and is still known as the lovers’ bridge even if the love locks have now disappeared. It is a pedestrian bridge crossing the river from the French Institute to the Louvre. Many musicians are used to playing on the bridge that create especially at night a ‘Boheme’ atmosphere.
