Written by on January 1, 2016 in Paris, Romantic


How did you spend Valentine’s Day 2015? Was it a romantic trip to Arby’s? The all too common ‘Netflix and chill’ night? Or were you like many couples who simply can’t remember, mostly because February 14th was bland and ordinary? Well, what better New Year’s Resolution to keep than making ’16 Valentine’s Day one for the ages with a trip to the romantic country of France.

Whether you’re Newlyweds, celebrating a 40th anniversary, or single and looking for love France has a certain majesty to it – especially on Valentine’s Day, the Super Bowl of Love.

Sights to See

Although the famous “love locks” on the Pont des Arts bridge have been removed, it is hardly the only romantic thing to see on your visit to the port of passion.

Eiffel Tower – perhaps the icon of romance, there is no better way to spend Valentine’s Day 2016 then with a visit to the Eiffel Tower. Your heart will be racing with a spectacular view of the city and there will be love in the air especially on February 14th as couples around you undoubtedly propose to their significant others.


Montmatre District – enjoy a sentimental stroll through the picturesque streets of Paris, specifically the Montmartre District. From the artistic heritage to the windmills-turned-dance-halls to beautiful vineyards and the Basilica of the Sacred Heart – this area is quaint but lovely.

Saint Valentin – this small village in France is said to be the birthplace of Valentine’s Day and thousands of couples make the pilgrimage each February to renew their vows, get proposed, or send a card to their love interest.

About the Trip

One thing to remember is that France is a romantic mecca so Valentine’s Day plans should be made as early as possible to ensure availability. Another item to consider is that France isn’t your typical warm weather destination vacation. Mid-February temperatures ranging from around 35° to 55° F. Also, although being in France the actual date of Valentine’s Day is a once in a lifetime event, you may find slightly lower rates and less tourists a week or two later in early March, which is considered a slow season and which may create a more romantic and intimate experience.
