Top spots for a Parisian proposal
When you think of love we’re sure, as with most of us, your immediate thought springs to a family member, a friend, or for the lucky ones their even luckier other halves. But, if you had to sum up love as a place, well, where else would do but Paris? As the undeniable City of Love boasts some of the most beautiful spots in the world, there really is no better place for a proposal. Here we give you the round up of some of the most romantic places in the French capital to ask the most important question of your life… Jardin Du Palais Royal What could be more beautiful than proposing within the gardens of a royal palace? Hidden away behind the Louvre, this secret Parisian paradise has magnolia trees that blossom in the spring and rose bushes that bloom during the summer. Notre Dame Cathedral Sitting on the banks of the river Seine, the medieval Notre Dame Cathedral is considered one of the finest examples of French architecture ever created. On a twinkling summer’s evening this picturesque backdrop makes the perfect location to pop the question. Arc de Triomphe A stunning alternative to the Eiffel Tower, the view from the Arc de Triomphe is guaranteed to take your partner’s breath away and is absolutely gorgeous in any season. Pont des Arts When it comes to a proposal, we think that the Pont des Arts is simply picture perfect. A charming tradition for lovers: the barriers are crowded with padlocks that couples have attached to the fencing and then tossed the key into the Seine. The Pyramide du Louvre Seen as a symbol of everlasting love and unity, the Pyramide, with its thousands of diamond-shaped glass panes that reflect onto the water beneath and the exquisitely carved statues that surround it, is an iconic spot to get engaged. We’d suggest visiting in the evening when it’s less busy and when your partner says yes (which of course they will!), pay the Café Marly a visit for a glass of champagne to celebrate and to view the sunset from the balcony.
