In the city of love, it is easy to find romantic hotels, but if you wish to be in the perfect places, one of the best options is the hotel Montmartre Mon Amour (at the 7 Rue Paul Albert). The hotel is located on the hill of Montmartre and even the most little details are considered. The entry is painted with red tones and hearts while the rooms are decorated with portraits of famous couples and phrases of love. For more privacy, you can order breakfast in your room and enjoy it at your own pace.

Located at less than 200 meters from the Basilica of Sacré Coeur, this location is excellent. You can take the metro at the train station of Gare de Lyon and change to line 4 at the Châtelet station. You should get out at the Château Rouge station. From there, you only have to walk a few minutes and you will arrive to the hotel. 


Restaurant Lapérouse, the perfect place for dinner!

The restaurant Lapérouse (51 Quai des Grands Augustins) is located inside a 17th century building and only one step away from the imposing Cathedral of Notre-Dame. It offers a romantic and nostalgic atmosphere that is ideal for couples. The interior is decorated with beautiful antique furniture, antique paintings, etc. We do not have to deny that it is not a cheap restaurant but you won't be disappointed. It will offer you a perfect candle light dinner.


The most romantic places

You shouldn’t leave Paris without visiting the Eiffel tower as it is a very romantic idea for a Valentine’s Day. The perfect timing is during the sunset when you can see how the sky is fading and the city suddenly begins to shine.

Another must for couples is to make a cruise on the Seine. In some of them, you can even have dinner in the moonlight while visiting the most emblematic places of Paris.

If the weather is good, a picnic in the Luxembourg Garden is also an excellent idea. This is the place where many couples use to enjoy a special snack with a French wine.


Traditions

The 14th of February is not only the day of love but also the day of traditions. 

While staying in Paris, you should take the opportunity to discover a singular tradition: the Marie Bridge (in French "Pont Marie"), also known as the lovers' bridge. According to the legend, anyone who is passing under this bridge can desire something and it will be granted. You won’t find a better time than to do it at Valentine's Day, isn’t it? 

The Wall of Love (in French "Le mur des "Je t'aime"") is also a must for couples arriving to Paris. It is a wall upon which the phrase 'I love you' is written in more than 300 languages. Taking a selfie with the Wall of Love has already become a tradition for couples. 




Come and celebrate Valentine's Day, you deserve it! Our Renfe-SNCF in Cooperation trains will take you at high-speed to the city of love to celebrate a magical 14th of February.​
