Eiffel Tower Sparkling

Paris is such an exciting city with so much to do and see.  Almost everything here can be considered romantic.  “It’s Paris, what’s not romantic about it?”  Our list below is what we accomplished while we were there for 7 days, and what we found romantic.  Our original starting list had much more, but there’s always next time for more. Enjoy the romantic things to do slideshow below!

 

  • Picnic at the Eiffel Tower, come back at dusk and make sure you see it sparkle
  • Climb up to the top and enjoy the view from the top of the Arc de Triomphe
  • Visit Claude Monet’s gardens at Giverny, the gardens are heavenly in the summer
  • Visit Notre Dame Cathedral – the world’s most stunning gothic-style cathedral
  • Buy a bag of macarons to share!
  • Explore Pere Lachaise cemetery, one of Paris’ most beautiful and intriguing cemeteries.  It will leave a lasting impression on you.
  • Visit my favorite museum – Musee Marmottan Monet – the world’s largest collection of Monet
  • Stroll down winding paths and enjoy the Luxembourg Gardens and the huge 60 acre park
  • Spend a couple of hours viewing the inside and outside of the Louvre as it is facinating in every way, go early because you don’t want to waste time in line
  • Enjoy a pain au chocolat  (chocolate sweet roll) at Angelina’s – 226 Rue De Rivoli, every chance you get.  They are tender, flaky, buttery and the chocolate has just the right amount of sweetness!  I miss them.
  • Enjoy a glass of Champagne and watch the world go by for no other reason than because you can.
  • Start walking and look for the most romantic restaurant you can find to return for dinner that evening.
  • Jardin Tuileries- These gardens are just fun to stroll through on your way to anywhere
  • Roam around Rue Cler a small street filled with fruit stands, cheese shops, flower shops, wine shops, cafes and buy a few items for your romantic picnic later.
  • Enjoy a cup or cone at  one of the Amorino Gelato Shops, don’t limit yourself
  • Put a lock on the bridge between Notre Dame and the left bank on the bridge Pont de l’Archevêché. (Now commonly called “The Love Bridge”.)  You won’t believe how many lovers have beat you to it!!
  • Stroll hand-in-hand down the Champs-Élysées, and stop at several sidewalk cafes that catch your fancy and order another delightful cup of coffee or glass of wine.
  • Enjoy Musée d’Orsay together, a museum housed in a former grand railway station with many sculptures and impressionist paintings
  • Experience the calm and soothing displays at Musée de l’Orangerie
  • Walk to Place des Vosges in the Marias, the oldest city square in Paris. Victor Hugo’s home is interesting to view and overlooks the square.
