Whether you’re on the lookout for an idyllic spot to propose to your sweetheart or just a hidden nook to steal a few naughty French kisses, we have you covered. Below you’ll find a curated list of the six most romantic places to kiss in Paris.
Most Romantic Places to Kiss in Paris #1: Pont Alexandre III Bridge
Featured prominently in the divinely romantic last scene of Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris, this magnificent landmark is one of the most alluring playgrounds for lovebirds in the City.
As Chantelle, our Chief Celebration Officer, said, “I feel so beautiful and elegant when I’m on that bridge. Whenever you see it, it just makes you feel good. When you look at it, you’re in awe that humanity can create such a majestic structure. It says ‘Paris’ more than any other bridge in town. Everything about it is what we think of the City of Lights: refined elegance, romance, and sophistication.”
To make the most of your Alexandre III Bridge experience, definitely plan to visit at night. Its dreamy illumination, gold-plated ornamentation, and the glimmering Eiffel Tower in the distance offer the perfect ambiance to gaze deeply into the eyes of your sweetheart and celebrate your love.
Most Romantic Places to Kiss in Paris #2: Luxembourg Gardens
A quiet place of luxuriant natural beauty, centuries-old sculpture, and architecture, the Jardin du Luxembourg will charm your date with its idyllic lawns, tree-lined alleys, flowerbeds, and the historic Medici Fountain.
The park is an oasis of calm from the bustle of the Latin Quarter with Saint-Germain-des-Prés nearby.
So bring a blanket to delight your loved one with French wine and cheese … along with the quintessential Parisian baguette, of course. Then snuggle up to soak up the scenery and share a timeless kiss of equal parts poetry and passion.
Most Romantic Places to Kiss in Paris #3: Rue de l’Abreuvoir (La Maison Rose)
The historic district of Montmartre is known far and wide for its lively cafés and cabarets, eccentric artists, and light-hearted joie de vivre.
Most Romantic Places to Kiss in Paris #4: Louvre Museum
Start your day with the verdant Tuileries Gardens. Hold hands and saunter along the lush promenade. Most visitors stroll around the center of the garden. So, when you head toward the Seine to the Terrasse du Bord de L’Eau, you’ll enjoy more privacy along its tree-lined allée. Or break out the trusty blanket and treat your soulmate to an open-air picnic.
At sundown, when museum traffic disappears, head over to the illuminated Louvre courtyard.
In the evening, when the musicians come out, it becomes a romance-novel parallel reality. Expect Goosebumps when the palace and pyramids are lit up. That’d be the ideal moment to steal a glamorous kiss with live music playing around you.
Standing in the middle of it all, with the lights of Place de la Concorde twinkling in the distance, take in the architectural marvels which have delighted kings and queens for centuries.
Most Romantic Places to Kiss in Paris #5: The Pont des Arts Bridge
Also known as the Love Lock Bridge, Pont des Arts is where couples from around the world used to place personalized padlocks on the railings. And, then, they threw the keys in the Seine to seal their love. While charming and fun, the ritual started weighing the structure down, and alas, the practice was banned.
But there is still a great reason to visit this iconic bridge. It boasts one of the most idyllic, quintessential postcard views of Paris. Notably, the Île de la Cite—a small island in the middle of the Seine, with a majestic weeping willow—perfectly designed to shield lovers from curious eyes … with the towers of Notre Dame Cathedral just in the distance.
So, while it’s no longer possible to physically padlock your love on the bridge, its romantic aura is ideal for sealing your poetic pilgrimage with a kiss.
Most Romantic Places to Kiss in Paris #6: Eiffel Tower
A passionate kiss at one of the highest points in Paris seems beyond romantic but may not be your cup of tea unless you like crowds. Fortunately, there are many enticing options to get affectionate around La Grande Dame as well.
How about a picnic in the Gardens of the Trocadero? Imagine you and your loved one snuggled up on the soft grass with the Eiffel Tower as your main attraction.
Yet another temptation on the other side of the Seine is Champ de Mars, a vast green space reaching the foot of the tower. Lay on the lawn with a pack of Parisian macarons, a perennial French classic, and sneak a kiss between yummy mouthfuls of cream-filled crust.
Maybe kick things up a notch with Champagne, and count your blessings while savoring one of the most iconic monuments on the globe with the man or woman of your dreams.
