Romantic Activities For When Love Becomes You In The City of Light

In recent years the bridges of Paris became covered in padlocks, known here as love locks, by couples pledging their eternal love to one another. Alas, the bridge panels began to crumble underneath the weight of all this love. So, the city urges lovers to pledge their love on the city’s digital wall, which you can find by searching #LoveWithoutLocks. In the meantime, enjoy the once again unobstructed views from the newly implemented tempered glass paneling from the Pont Des Arts, a bridge now without love locks. 

Walking hand-in-hand under one umbrella in the rain in Paris is not just a romantic thing to do, but one of the most romantic things you likely ever will do with your love. Strolling along the banks of the Seine, winter, spring, summer or fall, is another one of those things - romantic as all get-out. But topping the list as the most romantic thing to do is Honeymoon in Paris

More ideas : Rendezvous with your love in the Château Versailles; Or how about embracing atop the Eiffel Tower ? True, not original but that doesn’t make it any less romantic. Looking to get him or her in the mood ? Take your love to Place du Tertres, the animated square at the top of the Butte Montmartre which you'll find just steps from the Sacre-Coeur. The view from the Baslique, by the way, has the cityscape displayed at your feet. Dazzling.

And when you’re feeling less rambunctious and simply wanting to gaze into each other’s eyes, a spa-day retreat at either the Clarins Spa Molitor or at the Guerlain Spa Trianon Versailles will have you feeling like you've indulged in a sublime romantic escapade without straying too far from Paris.
