First things first, there’s an American woman married to the Eiffel Tower. I don’t know if a weird object fetish towards the Eiffel Tower screams “City of Love”, but it has to give Paris some extra romance points, right? Here’s some other, more practical, reasons why Paris is one of the romantic places in the world.
The Language- “Je t’adore!” Just saying “I love you” in French makes it sound so beautiful and endearing. The French language makes every word feel like a chocolate truffle melting in your mouth. The words flow together without any sort of disconnect, and there’s just a magnetic pull towards anyone with a French accent.
Lights- The Eiffel Tower twinkling in the night is probably one of the most romantic spectacles one could ever see. Picture the lights lit along the Seine river, lighting the way for a romantic walk. You may even cross over the famous Love Lock Bridge! Although there have been reports that the padlocks have since have been removed, concerning the degradation of the Pont des Arts.
French Desserts- No food is more romantic than sweets. Macaroons, crepes, and some chocolate mousse are just a few of the scrumptious french desserts. They’re decadent, elegant, and the perfect end to a lovely date.
Eiffel Tower- No matter how you see it, from far away, up close and personal, or looking out at the view from the top, the Eiffel Tower is a work of art in itself. To be able to experience it with someone else is a special occasion. If having a glass of champagne at the top of the Eiffel Tower isn’t enough, there’s Le 58 tour Eiffel on the first floor and Le Jules Verne on the second floor to have an excellent meal at one of the world’s most famous landmarks.
Romantic Art- The Louvre holds many works of art, but none are as famous as the Mona Lisa. Her smile makes you wonder about the romance behind the eyes of the subject. The Venus de Milo is a famous Greek sculpture also at the Louvre, emulating love and beauty. Who can forget that romantic Disney scene with Hercules and Meg? Yeah the one where Hercules took the arms off the Venus de Milo! Thanks, Hercules.
Paris deserves its title of “City of Love” as so many embark there on romantic adventures. From one traveler to another, Happy Valentine’s and Galentine’s Day!
