Love Stops

Oh, Paris…how we love thee. And in so many ways. If you haven’t visited in a while, or if you’ve never been, it’s time to book a roundtrip flight to the most romantic place on Earth to remind yourself that love really does make the world go round.

When visiting the City Of Love, the trip starts at the airport but the romance kicks in at the subway stop of Champ De Mars as you climb the steps and pop your head out of the station and gaze up to see the Eiffel Tower standing 1,063 feet tall just feet away. If you’ve never seen it in person, it literally takes your breath away. It’s just a quick walk until you’re up-close and personal with the undisputed icon of romance. For the photos that will make all your friends say “awww” walk a few short blocks to Place Du Trocadero to get a perfect view of the tower behind you as you clutch your sweetheart — sneaking in a kiss right before the flash. Return at night when the tower lights up and have dinner on the lawns. Make sure to pack local favorites: cheese, fruits, chocolates and champagne. At the Pont Des Arts, hook on a lovelock to the bridge with your names on it and toss the keys in the river to proclaim your eternal love for each other. Need more romance? The Luxembourg Palace & Gardens has gorgeous flowerbeds, fountains and statues, making it ideal for a romantic stroll. You see, the truth is, you can’t go wrong in the city that exudes romance at every turn, so even grabbing a hot chocolate and sharing some macaroons as you roam the streets is enough to make Cupid swoon.
