Paris, capital of love? The City of Light is renowned for its romanticism with its pretty bridges, its mythical love stories and its lovers smooching on public benches. But what are the perfect places to declare your love? Paris Select and Nicolas Garreau, specialist in breathtaking marriage proposals at ApoteoSurprise, reveal 10 places to stroll as a couple in Paris.
The Rose Garden of the Bagatelle Gardens
WE love : the smells emanating from the flowerbeds and the explosions of colors in summer.
The northern island of the Lower Lake of the Bois de Boulogne
WE love : Rent a boat and feel disconnected from the world a few minutes from Paris.
The Yitzhak Rabin Garden in Bercy
WE love : This set of gardens which makes us discover an orange grove, vines, lakes...
The Medici Fountain in the Luxembourg Gardens
WE love : the green decor and the statue of the mythical Greek couple (Galatea, marine goddess and Acis) entwined. A beautiful ode to love.
The Temple of Lovers in the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont
WE love : The lake, the waterfalls and this island where the lovers' temple sits have a charm that cannot be found anywhere else in Paris.
The garden of the Maison de Balzac
WE love : the view of the Eiffel Tower and the calm of the garden.
Oscar Wilde's grave in the Père-Lachaise cemetery
WE love : the poetry that emanates from the place. Until recently, the grave was covered in lipstick kisses. This practice had to be banned so as not to damage the burial.
WE love : Rue Mouffetard is one of the oldest streets in Paris and it has kept its old-fashioned, timeless and wildly romantic charm.
WE love : The small village atmosphere that emerges from the shops and restaurants.
The Rodin museum and its park
WE love : The French garden of this mansion where the sculptor's works are hidden.
