  1. Paris is such a romantic place to spend time with a loved one. The lover's garden seems like a great place to visit to enjoy opera and watching the sunset at Butte Bergere.

  2. All of these places really do sound amazing. I think I would have to go with the Eiffel Tower location if I would pick first just because of the romance and seeing that lit up at night would be amazing. But any of these really just sound spectacular.

  3. I love Paris, even being single ;) I find Montmartre romantic as well and the gardens like the Jardin du Luxembourg.
