If there’s a perfect date setting in the world, many people would agree that it would be none other than the city of love itself: Paris. Romance and Paris match like they’re made together for each other—scenic views, luxurious restaurants, famous art museums, and a whole lot more.
The city has witnessed the most extravagant proposals, marriages, couple dances, and even the start of budding relationships.
It only goes to show that the city provides you the greatest opportunity to get creative with your dating plans. After all, the city is vibrant and big, providing endless possibilities for lovers who want to create memorable moments. From cobbled streets to museums, cabarets, canal tours, and the famous Eiffel Tower, we will list down unique romantic date ideas for you and your lover to try out in Paris:
Hôtel Particulier Montmartre
Montmartre is one of the city’s most romantic restaurants. Situated between Avenue Junot and the foodie heaven of Rue Leptic, Hôtel Particulier Montmartre is ready to serve couples’ desire for a one-of-a-kind, intimate, and beautiful brunch. You won’t get wrong in having meals inside this breathtaking 19th-century manor home.
Attend a masterclass
Paris will not only impress you, but it surely will motivate you to impress your loved one. There are a lot of cooking schools and classes that offer lessons, from baking the perfect croissant to preparing a feast for a party. Some of the best lessons are being taught by Cook’n With Class, Ecole de Cuisine Alain Ducasse, and Le Cordon Bleu.
If you and your significant other enjoy being in the kitchen, then it’s the perfect opportunity to showcase and hone your cooking and/or baking skills!
Angelina at 226 Rue de Rivoli
If you have been doing research about the best date ideas in Paris, chances are you have already heard about the signature hot chocolate at Angelina. If your lover has a flair for everything sweet, then this is the perfect destination. Spearheaded by Austrian confectioner, Antoine Rumpelmayer, he named this legendary tea house after his stepdaughter. In fact, it has been visited by famous industry leaders such as Coco Chanel! Make sure not to miss their signature hot chocolate and Mont Blanc: a pureed, sweetness-filled chestnuts finished with whipped cream.
If you are into art and sculptures, then the Musée Rodin might be the perfect romantic destination for you and your loved one. Admire the greatest sculptures in the world, such as The Thinker and The Kiss.
It would not be a Parisian date without wine tasting! This lovely wine bar, which is a five-minute walk from the Louvre, is the perfect spot for you and your lover to cap off your day. If you want to get the most out of your experience, we suggest going for a private wine tasting session. Have a night that’s like no other in Ô Chateau!
Ditch the taxis—try riding a Venetian taxi boat in Seine! Cruising the Seine is all about that glamorous Parisian experience you usually watch in movies. Revel in the city’s beauty while sipping champagne with the most important person in your life. This can be achieved with the help of the 30′ Cuddy Cabin. Cruising along the Seine for an hour and a half would cost an eye-watering €690. Nevertheless, you can still check out other river or canal cruise options that don’t involve having tourists waving at you on both sides.
A not-so-unique destination, we know! But hear us out first! Most people only visit the Eiffel Tower just to take a gander and take a picture with it in the background. But what people don’t know is that they can actually dine in the Eiffel Tower!
Have an intimate meal in France’s most coveted tourist destination. Being run by French master chef Alain Ducasse, his mission is to serve memorable food and moments that will be forever etched in the memories of the people who visited the area.
If anything, Palais Garnier is the pinnacle of the wondrous 19th century Parisian art and architecture. If you want a classy night-out, we highly suggest treating your lover and yourself to a night at the opera! If you are fast, you can even snag tickets to a memorable performance for as low as €10! Enjoy the heavenly music, dance, and Marc Chagall’s masterpiece: the ceiling of Palais Garnier.
We’re capping off this list with Paris’s most famous museum! If you think getting close to the Mona Lisa is impossible, think again! Because every Wednesday and Friday night, the museum hosts a late opening. Best believe what you will find peace and a quieter atmosphere compared to the opening hours in the day. It’s the perfect time and place if you and your lover want to enjoy an atmosphere that’s just like straight out or a Dan Brown novel!
