Booking your own Paris home rental is very easy but planning which sights to see and what things to do for a romantic getaway may be a little bit tricky. It's impossible to see all attractions in one go and your partner may not agree to those places that you want to see in your list. If you're in Paris for a short period of time, make sure to drop by the city's most romantic places by planning ahead of time. These romantic destinations are just a walk away from Paris rentals where you might end up staying.
Arc de Triomphe: Paris, France
If you want a less typical experience, forget about the Eiffel Tower and head instead to the Arc de Triomphe, a monument built under the instructions of Napoleon Bonaparte. In this modern day, the monument stands as a symbol of victory in Paris. You can snuggle up with your partner while on top of the monument and enjoy the amazing views of the city from the top. It is thought by many that the view from Arc de Triomphe is much better than from the Eiffel Tower.
Arc de Triomphe is open 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. except from October to March where they close doors 30 minutes earlier. Visitors have to climb 280 steps to get to the top but an elevator is available for physically-challenged visitors. Entrance fees are pegged at around $15 while children under 18 years get free admission.
Seine River: Paris, France
The City of Light's boat tours is another romantic attraction that you and your partner should not miss. By cruising along the Seine River, you get to take a glimpse of Paris' most visited attractions along its riverbanks and enjoy a candle-lit dinner with your partner. You can choose to go on a narrated tour that focuses on the city's sights and history or simply sit by the boat terrace and enjoy the view while having lunch or dinner.
The best months to take the Seine boat tours are from May to September when the city temperature is relatively warm and the skies are clear. Boat tours usually depart every 30 to 45 minutes. The tour usually takes an hour and 15 minutes to finish. You can also drop by at the Ile Saint Louis, a small island within the Seine River and taste their Berthillion, a delicious sorbet that can only be found in the area.
Restaurant Jules Verne: Paris, France
Aside from climbing the steps of looming towers and cruising along the Seine River, take your partner to a restaurant where both of you can sample French cuisine. The Restaurant Jules Verne in the Eiffel Tower's second level is reputed to be the most romantic restaurant in Paris. Their 8-course menu is popular among restaurant critics and reservations a few months prior to your dinner date is always required. Expect to pay 120 Euros for each person seated.
