This week Paris pulls out all the stops for hopeless romantics, creator-inventors and future cinéphiles.
Paris is for Lovers
Paris on Saint Valentine’s Day – what could be more romantic? The city of light lives up to its reputation with numerous hotels, restaurants and pastry shops celebrating the special day. City hall is even getting in the mood by displaying messages of love submitted by Parisians on 170 of its electronic signs across town.
But now that the Pont des Arts is a no love-lock zone, where can lovers take an intimate stroll? Try a picturesque walk up to the Wall of I Love You in Montmartre, with over 311 written declarations of love in 250 different languages; or honor the original Romantic Movement with a visit the charming Musée de la Vie Romantique. And for singles, Paris has got you covered with special singles dance parties, like the Project X Love Party at California Avenue. Vive l’amour!
