The usual suspects.


OK it’s not original, but nothing says “I love you” like a trip to Paris.


There’s no doubt about it, this city is synonymous with l’amour. Millions of people go there every year and you can bet your last baguette a fair few will be making their partner an offer they can’t refuse.


For the ultimate in romance go up the Eiffel Tower at night – that’s when it glitters like the diamond burning a hole in your pocket. If you want a bit more privacy, you might want to stay at ground level.


Share a special moment in front of Venus in the Louvre. Take a boat ride bathed in the soft light of the Seine. Or pick one of the city’s cosy bistros and enjoy a candlelit meal à deux.


Sip champagne in the sophisticated hotel bar of Mon Hotel, near the Champs Elysées, decorated with original art. Or propose at the Paris Hilton (the place, not the person) which boasts the largest open-air hotel gardens in the city.
