Considered as one the most picturesque and romantic locations in Paris, Montmartre hill is basically famous for Basilique du Sacré-Coeur (Sacred Heart Basilica). Stretch some legs as you hike up towards the Basilica, from where the entire city of Paris looks like a dream. Sing ‘La Vie En Rose’ and watch the sun-set with city lights coming to life.

Unlike the French norms, dance lovers gather under the moonlight at Square Tino Rossi (Metro stop Jussieu or Gare Austerlitz) each evening to enjoy a round of group tango. You can either be a part of the dance number, or simply sit back with a bottle of rosé wine and cheer up the dancers. Can anything get any hotter than showing your groove moves to your partner?

Just like they show in the movies, rent a Vespa from FreeScoot boutique (next to Notre Dame) and drive your way through the vintage lanes of Paris.

Les Ombres offers what is more romantic than a candlelit experience – the enchanting view of the Eiffel Tower while you dine. Those who are looking for a traditional candlelight setting Le Coupe-Chou’s glowing dining rooms are the one for you. Dine amidst the artistic luxury of Paris and opt for lunch on the terrace of Le Saut du Loup (near the Louvre) or go French with oysters and wine at Le Baron Rouge.
The romantic opportunities are endless, so plan out your honeymoon itinerary in advance. Avoid touristy places as they tend to exploit your romantic moments. Happy Honeymooning!
