Paris's most romantic walks for couples

Paris fully merits the name "The City of Love" and is chosen by couples from all over the world for their romantic getaway. If this is the case for you, here are our recommendations on the best areas to enjoy a hand-in-hand walk.

Montmartre

This is without a doubt the bohemian quarter par excellence.

It is literally impossible to walk along its cobbled street and not fall in love with this enchanting area, where artists like Monet and Van Gogh first, and Picasso and Dali later on, lived in and found inspiration.

For a breath-taking view of Paris, walk up the steps to the basilica of the Sacré-Coeur, the highest point in the city.

The banks of the Seine

A stroll down the banks of the river Seine is both romantic and touristic as many of the capital’s most impressive monuments are located along them.

On the left bank you can take a walk around the Ile St. Louis and the haunting Notre Dame Cathedral while on the right bank you can explore Canal Saint-Martin and its picturesque lively canals.

You can also cross Pont de l’Archevêché and attach a padlock on the bridge before throwing the key to the Seine. Be careful though, as city authorities do not approve of this practice.

The Latin Quarter

One of the favourite places for both locals and tourists thanks to its lively old cafes and bistros and its carefree atmosphere.

You can stroll down its passageways and narrow lanes or walk around its elegant gardens before exploring one of its many antique bookstores. The most famous one is the 1920s inspired Shakespeare and Company.

In the evening, be sure to walk into low lit restaurants for a romantic dinner or enjoy live jazz in one of its many bars.

Louvre and Tuileries Gardens

Although the Louvre may not seem a romantic place at first sight, its surroundings hide romantic galleries, squares like the popular Place de la Concorde and leafy green areas.

We are particularly fond of the Jardin des Tuileries a public park with elegant fountains, dramatic sculptures, relaxing ponds and tree lined trails.

When the sun goes down and the tourists retreat, this area becomes much quieter and the subtle lighting of the buildings create a romantic atmosphere that could melt hearts.

In contrast, the brightly-lit Eiffel Tower can be seen in the distance.

Le Marais

One of Paris’ oldest quarters, it is now also one of the most prestigious and aristocratic.

The architectural styles of Medieval and Reinassance-era have been preserved throughout the years and the history of the city – and the country even – can be inhaled in almost every turn of the corner.

Its narrow streets are home to artisans’ workshops, art galleries, lavish squares such as Place des Vosges and outstanding buildings of historic importance, most of which are hotel particuliers or residences of noblemen.
