Romantic dates in Paris: If French is the language of love, then Paris must certainly be the land of love. From rowboat dates on the lakes to hidden kisses during silent films to glasses of wine in vintage brasseries, there is no end to date inspiration in the city of love.
1. Visit Bois de Boulogne
Buy some candyfloss and stroll around Bois de Boulogne. With rowboats to rent and gardens to explore, it’s a lovely afternoon out, away from the hustle and bustle of Parisian life.
2. Visit Buttes Chaumont
Have a picnic in the parc at Buttes Chaumont. An oasis of green, situated in the 19e arrondissement and away from the beaten tourist path, the parc of Buttes Chaumont is not only the perfect place to settle down and read a book but also for a ‘Parisian style’ sophisticated picnic. Why not bring a table cloth to go with your typical wine, bread and cheese board?
3. Stroll around Ile de la Cite
Grab a falafel and stroll along the Seine. Maoz Falafel (8 Rue Xavier Privas) is always a good bet (and with a help your own salad bar you’re sure to eat a sandwich you actually enjoy).
4. Grab a drink (and a croissant or two)
Go for a drink of tea, coffee or even a cocktail at one of the hundreds of bars, pubs, and cafes around the city. And seeing as you’re in Paris, why not pick up a croissant while you’re at it? (Best Irish pubs in Paris)
5. Wander along Canal Saint Martin
Stroll along Canal St Martin at Sunset. Or, if you’re feeling particularly adventurous, why not visit the Eiffel Tower at Sunrise?
