Sip Champagne In Classic Parisian Bars

For a real taste of the French lifestyle, spend your Valentine’s Day in Paris sipping Champagne in beautiful bars. For most of us, Champagne isn’t a tipple to enjoy every day, so it’s the perfect choice for a special occasion. There are hundreds of bars à Champagne across Paris, so you will certainly have no trouble finding a nice spot when looking for places to go for Valentine’s Day. We love a visit to Dilettantes in the Quartier Latin, which is a quirky cellar bar where you can learn all about the 150 different Champagnes on offer. For something a bit different, head to Champop, an art gallery and Champagne bar all rolled into one. You can check out some of the best street art from artists like Andy Warhol, Banksy, and Mister LucaT while enjoying a glass or two of bubbly.

Shop ‘til You Drop

When it comes to romantic things to do on Valentine’s Day, a stroll down the Champs-Elysée and a spot of shopping in Parisian boutiques is a top choice. The city of love is known for its amazing shopping, so why not treat your Valentine to a gift or two during your visit? The Champs-Elysée is the most well known avenue for hitting the shops in Paris, but there are plenty of other shopping districts worth a visit. In the 3rd and 4th arrondissements you will find the historic Marais area. Here you can take a stroll down rue de Saintonge, rue des Francs Bourgeois, rue de Turenne, and rue Veille du Temple, each lined with Parisian boutiques.

Take In Breathtaking Views Of The City

No trip to Paris is complete without enjoying some of beautiful panoramic views across the city.

When it comes to things to do on Valentine's Day, you can make these movie scenes a reality. The city is full of beauty spots offering breathtaking views. The most famous is from the top of the Eiffel Tower but expect queues and crowds. We recommend heading to Montmartre, where you can watch the sun set over Paris and watch local street performers.
