Hi Luke,

One thing I love to do in Summertime in Paris is walking around the parks of Paris. My favourites are Parc des Buttes Chaumont and Luxembourg Garden, which is next to the Senate. You can also walk around the old district of Latin Quarter and its tiny cute streets, enter maybe old book stores and antique shops.

Now, if you don't want to walk, you can take a boat tour of the Seine River with the Bateaux Mouches or the Bateaux Parisiens, which have stops on several points on the city and offer night cruises with dinners.

One thing that is very Parisian is to walk along the docks of the river and have a look at the book stalls of Les Bouquinistes

My favourite romantic thing to do in Paris though is to go to Montmartre for sunset. There are usually street artistes and musicians next to the big church, then you can have a drink or dinner at one of the numerous cafés and restaurants. It's touristy, but definitely romantic!

Hi Luke!  A couple of ideas for you in addition to the great ones below...the Musee Rodin is one of the more peaceful and romantic museums, that would be a nice visit. If you want to really treat her to an amazing lunch, take her to at at Les Ombres for a spectacular Eiffel Tower view a top the roofs of Paris. This makes for an incredible memory together! The Palais-Royal is also a romantic stroll for couples, and there you can find Palais Royal - Serge Lutens and perhaps buy her a special fragrance for her to always remember the trip. I would also suggest an afternoon glass of wine at the rooftop terrace at Hotel Raphael, they do a lot of wedding photoshoots here because it is so romantic! Lastly for an overnight romantic getaway, why not whisk her away to Le Petit Trianon hotel at Versailles? Just a few ideas for you there! Have a great trip.

I agree with THomas. you can also go on top of George PompidouBeaubourg where you have art exhibition, and a restaurant, with a view on all Paris, because it's central. the garden The Louvre is central and parisian; you can visit the Musee de l'Orangerie and the Jeu de Paume, take a take Angélina and of course, admire the Louvre and the pyramide, the seine and the obelisk... try also a chef with 1, 2, 3 stars : they have "not" expensive menu for lunch.

A picnic by the Seine. Get sandwiches made, salads, desserts and a half bottle of champagne. Bring glasses from your hotel room. Find a bench (by the islands is nice) and relax with your picnic.

I lived in Paris for two years and met my boyfriend there; possibly the most quiet, relaxing, romantic things we ever did were picnicking along the Seine or in Buttes Chaumont or on the steps of Montmartre. (You'll find plenty of fellow Parisians doing the same). A lot of picnicking -- and a lot of wandering. Especially at dusk into the night. Get lost in Paris and stroll through the Louvre when it's dark or along the banks of the Seine.

Hi Luke

Even that today fixing a lock on Pont des Arts is banned, but Paris still the most visiting place in the world and also very romantic. Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Trocadéro, Champ de Mars, river Seine, Montmartre, Place du Tertre etc.... and so many more. You are Canadian so I think you also speak a little french, so easy for you. Enjoy a happy holydays.

Utilize fully the many guides to not only the free gorgeous walks through Paris. They are online. I used Fodors travel guides and there online restaurant guide while in Bercy. Use the metro and your feet and I promise that you will never ever forget this anniversary together. Montmartre is absolutely romantic and scenic as well. There are countless options in Paris and you will find you can't make them all. I am returning in spring next year to see what else i can see.
