If you want to have a really loved-up getaway, this is for you. You'll get to undestand or simply realize again why Paris is said to be one of the most romantic city in the World.

This itinerary is not at all meant to be comprehensive, but will nevertheless be rich and fulfilling, we hope. Yes, we didn't include the obviously very romantic Eiffel Tower, but see that as an opportunity for yet another getaway with your lover, some other day. And yes, we chose to avoid the almost worn-out (but still enjoyable, we admit) "bateau-mouche" cruise on the Seine.

Rather, we'd like to let you wander freely among those charming and varied places, with only love in your mind. From the Montmartre hill to the banks of the Seine, let's follow this itinerary at your own pace.

Just have at least 3 hours before you to do everything. Of course you'll have breaks that may lenghten this duration, but that's fine. With the exception of the Museum of Romantic Life, you won't need tickets for the places we included here, so you can easily make changes to the itinerary as you please.

On you lover's way to Paris, then !

Step by step
  • This might be a bit cliché, but still, there is something there : the view and the mood from the square of the Sacré-Cœur basilica are magical, no matter what. 1
  • Now you have two options : the first would be strolling around Montmartre area (du Tertre then Jean-Baptiste Clément squares, Lepic then Berthe streets, finally des Abbesses street through the passageway of the same name), the second and more straightforward one would be to get to Saint-Pierre square at the bottom of Montmartre hill, then turn right into Tardieu street following by Yvonne-Le-Tac street in the continuity. Lastly, in the Square Jehan-Rictus, have a look at the wall of "I love you"s (mur des je t'aime). 2
  • Now head towards Pigalle through Houdon street from des Abbesses street. As this quarter is indeed rather odd for a romantic moment, go straight to the other side of de Clichy boulevard, in Jean-Baptiste-Pigalle street which will get you to Chaptal street, the latter going right towards the famous Museum of Romantic Lifre, as cute from the outside as it is interesting inside. 3
  • Reach Henner street (left from Chaptal street if going West), then La Bruyère street. You may take bus 74 (La Bruyère stop) towards the Hôtel de Ville up to Richelieu-Drouot-Mairie du 9e stop, and continue by walking along Montmartre boulevard eastbound, until you get to the passegeway, on your left. If, from La Bruyère street, you'd rather walk the whole way, follow the given path which will get you past Saint-Georges Theater, Notre-Dame-de-Lorette street, du Faubourg-Montmartre street and finally Verdeau passageway then your next stop : the ever-so-authentic, ever-so-charming, ever-so-parisian Jouffroy passageway. 4
  • Follow on in the same general direction through des Panoramas passageway then Vivienne street via Feydeau street. Enter Vivienne Gallery to get closer still to the Palais-Royal. 5
  • Get past the "colonnes de Buren", the Comédie-Française, the Richelieu passageway of the Louvre Palace, the Pyramid and then the Cour Carrée. 6
  • Now reach the Pont Neuf and the Île de la Cité with its very pretty and very romantic du Vert-Galant garden, an ideal love nest. 7
  • Cross the river up to de Conti embankment then turn right towards the Pont des Arts. Close by are Mazarine library and the Hôtel de la Monnaie. 8
  • Now get past the Institut de France and follow Mazarine street. Turn right into Jacques-Callot street then left into de Seine street. You'll meet on your right de l'Echaudé street which will take you to Jacob street. Follow it on your right again. Finally, de Furstemberg will be on your left. 9
  • Exiting de Furstemberg street nearby Saint-Germain-des-Prés church, turn left and reach de Buci street, which you will follow (you may have a look at the Cour de Rohan, close by) up to Danton street and Saint-Michel square. Continue straight ahead in this popular semi-pedestrian quarter until Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre and your final stop, through Saint-Séverin street. You may then find a lovely restaurant to end the trip. 10
