1. Fall in love all over again at the Louvre
Impress your date when you skip the line at Paris’s most iconic museum and sashay straight into its art-filled galleries. You’ll love seeing the greatest hits of western art history up close, from the Mona Lisa to Venus de Milo herself. And don’t forget to snap a selfie in front of I.M Pei’s glass pyramid, either!
2. Discover romantic secrets of Versailles
What could be dreamier than strolling hand-in-hand through the stately gardens of Versailles? Skip the line to see this sumptuous palace and — when you’re done wandering its halls — make a beeline for the Petit Trianon. This charming chateau on the grounds of Versailles was a gift from Louis XVI to his bride, Marie Antoinette, and it makes the perfect backdrop for a secluded kiss.
3. See stars on the River Seine
Paris at night is a truly spectacular sight. Enjoy it in style with your special someone when you sail down the River Seine on an intimate evening cruise. What could be more romantic than gliding by floodlit monuments, like the Eiffel Tower and the Musee d’Orsay, glass of bubbly in hand?
4. Lean into romance atop the Eiffel Tower
There’s no point keeping your romantic experience low-key — after all, you are in Paris. So give in to full-blown butterflies and go straight to the top of the Eiffel Tower, with summit access, naturellement. You’ll avoid the long lines and take an elevator to the summit, where the city of Paris is spread at your feet, and the exclusive champagne bar beckons…
5. Take “dinner and a movie” up a notch
Forget Netflix and chill, or even dinner and a movie: book a date with true Parisian flair at the unforgettable Moulin Rouge or a night at the Lido. This cabaret has been serving glitz, glamor, and technicolor romance since the 19th century. Simply spectaculaire!
6. Have a Phantom of the Opera moment
Have a flair for the dramatic? Take your date to an authentic Parisian opera. Or, you could go one better and have a truly memorable guided opera experience at one of Paris’s most stunning opera houses. Informed guides at the Opera Garnier lift the curtain on the secrets of this Baroque building, filled to the brim with splendid architectural details and works of art.
7. Be bohemians for the day in Montmartre
Inject a little avant-garde flavor into your romantic getaway when you stroll the cobbled streets of the artistic Montmartre quartier. Opt for a guided tour that ensures you access to some of the region’s most significant sights, like Picasso’s old studio, or Van Gogh’s former house. Then, finish up with a drink in one of Montmartre’s famed cafes.
8. Cycle through some Parisian highlights
Get on your bike and wind your way through some of the city’s loveliest sights. There’s no better way to take in Paris than with a small-group bike tour. You’ll breeze past all the significant monuments, like the Eiffel Tower and the Place de la Concorde, and discover some of its lush green spaces, too.
9. Eat and drink in buzzy hipster hang-outs
Whether you’re young lovers or just young at heart, you’ll soon find there’s more to Paris than elegant bistros and upmarket wine bars. The city has a vibrantly hip food and drink scene and an expert tour with a local guide is your entrez to some of the city’s coolest hangouts. Sip drinks in up-and-coming neighborhoods, chat with local shopkeepers, and stroll through the famed Aligre markets.
10. Discover your sweeter side
Parisians truly know how to live the sweet life. Don’t stop at sampling patisserie in local boutique bakeries, learn how to make these delectable desserts for yourself. Master that most Parisian of treats, the macaron, with a cooking class in an intimate atelier setting. You’ll come away with all the tips and tricks you need to whip up the tastes of your Parisian vacation at home.
