Overlook Paris from the top of the Montmartre hill and the mythical Sacré-Coeur basilica. The lawns in front of you are the best place to watch the last minutes of the sun skimming over the city with its yellow-orange glow.
Afterwards, be sure to have dinner or a drink in one of the many cafes and restaurants in the area. And also, stop by and see the “Wall of Love”, where Paris shouts “I love you” in 250 different languages.

Who doesn’t remember their first date at the cinema, plunged in the dark with their heart pounding? Attend a screening of a classic film at “Le Grand Action”: an independent cinema, classified as art et essai, nestled in the middle of the Latin Quarter.

What could be more romantic than a walk at dusk on the banks of the Seine? Ideal for a romantic stroll at the end of the day, we advise you to go for a walk during the “golden hours”: those precious minutes of warm and golden light, which magically transform any scene (and make for great pictures!)
A precious moment, in a setting worthy of a Woody Allen film.
