Revered as the most romantic city in the world, Paris offers everything you want from such a famous cliché and more. Think beautiful tree-lined river banks, parks with fountains and plenty of benches on which to enjoy a picnic ,and pretty cafés offering seating on the street just perfect for watching the world go by – and that’s just for starters.

Notre Dame with its Gothic spires and gargoyles gazing out across the city is another famous landmark, and there’s also the stunning area of Montmartre, crowned by the majestic Sacre Coeur.

Perhaps take a romantic candlelit dinner cruise along the River Seine, indulging your senses as you savor a delicious five course meal while taking in the sights by moonlight? Or find a backstreet bistro for a more casual, but just as memorable, option.

Paris hotels can be as romantic as the city itself. From hotels perched high on the hill of Montmartre, with stunning views across the city, to those looking across the Seine to the Eiffel Tower, you really are spoiled for choice.

Couple in Paris at MontmartreIf you’re looking for a romantic hotel in Paris, you need look no further than Montmartre mon Amour (Montmartre my love). This stylish hotel offers individually styled rooms, featuring dramatic colours and chic accents, designed by “Atmospherist” Sandrine Alouf. Located at the foot of the hill of Montmartre and just steps away from the Sacre Coeur, this is without a doubt one of the most romantic locations in Paris and a fabulous base from which to explore.

Paris isn’t called the city of romance for nothing. Visit this beautiful city and see if it can bring the romantic in you to life.

How about you? Do you have a romantic Paris hotel recommendation?

    I LOVE Paris!! I went for this first time this past June and I only had 3 days there. There is so much to do that I wish I would have had at least a week. One of my favorite things I did was go up to the top of the Eiffel Tower! I also visited Versailles and it was magnificent! My hubby and I are going back in the near future!

    That French onion soup looks decadent! When I visited Paris, we stayed in the 7th arrondissement and we found the area pretty convenient as far as visiting museums and other attractions.
