What could be more romantic than a honeymoon in the city of love?
Follow your interests—food, Champagne, beautiful views, or all of the above—and use these suggestions to plan an itinerary you and your significant other won’t soon forget.
Take a Romantic Stroll (Photo Shoot)
One of the joys of exploring a new city is walking around to see the sights on foot. Paris is blessed with countless remarkable sights, like the Bir-Hakeim Bridge, the Trocadero, along the banks of the Seine, Pont Neuf, and the Champs Elysees Gardens, to name a few, but what if you could turn those memories into priceless souvenirs to remember long after you’ve returned home? Book a Flytographer shoot and you’ll have candid photos of you walking arm in arm with your sweetheart while your local photographer guide takes you to hidden gems and stunning viewpoints across the city.
Next-Level Dinner Cruise
Imagine the gentle waters of the Seine splashing around you as you sip wine and marvel at the night sky and street lights of Paris over dinner—this could be your Tuesday night! There are a host of tour companies that offer a variety of price points and menus—let Paris be your dinner-side entertainment for an evening.
Macaron Tasting Tour
The way to the heart is definitely through the stomach, via bright, creamy and delicately sweet macarons. Le Bon Paris Tours offers a macaron tasting and walking tour that takes you in and around all the sweetest parts of the chic Paris neighbourhood, Saint-Germain. If you and your new spouse hanker for something more savoury, there are delicious cheese (and or wine) tastings that run out of cheese cellars or out in the city, for groups or just the two of you.
Champagne Tasting at the Eiffel Tower
Not everyone knows that under all that metal, the Eiffel Tower is hiding a champagne bar on its third floor. The views from the top of Paris’ most iconic landmark (at around 276 metres up) are something you won’t see anywhere else. The bar has white and rose varieties of authentic Champagne, and is open for celebrating your nuptials from 10:15 a.m. (it’s like an OJ-free mimosa) to 10:15 p.m.
A Romantic Couple’s Paddle
Get ready for a romantic view of Paris you’ve never seen before. Bois de Boulogne is one of the city’s gorgeous public parks in the 16th arrondissement (and the second largest), so it’s twice the size of Central Park in New York City and features botanical gardens, landscape gardens, a zoo, an amusement park, horse racing, the French Open tennis courts, but most notably for romantically inclined honeymooners: a handful of fairytale lakes. Rent a boat at Lac Inferier and take a solo cruise on the water in the sunshine (packing wine and cheese is highly recommended).
