Many consider Paris as one of the most beautiful cities on the planet and the most romantic one. The day starts with a French breakfast in a bistro and then a visit to Montmartre with its amazing Sacre Coeur church. Picasso lived there with his impressive entourage of painters and poets. Nowadays the area is a playground for artists and the painters draw portraits on the sidewalks. Then it is a good time to walk the centre of the city and especially the areas around the Louvre and the Notre Dame. At dusk, it is the best time for a cruise on one of the boats on the Seine River. As the darkness falls, the cruise will offer a unique perspective of this magnificent city. Finally, a visit to the Latin Quarter and its vibrant cafes and bars is the perfect way to end one of the most romantic days that a couple can experience.
Burgundy is the most famous wine making region in the world. The opportunity of a honeymoon in a vineyard should not be missed. The chateaux will make a couple feel like royalty. The landscape is full of lakes, castles, abbeys, and medieval towns like the impressive Nevers, not to mention the local cuisine, which is considered the best in France. Burgundy is just 60 miles (1.30 hours by train) from Paris, therefore there is the option to combine these two destinations and enhance the overall experience of a honeymoon in France.
Brittany is located in the north west of France. It is most known for Mont St. Michel, the country’s most photographed landmark. Tourists wait for the tide and walk the 1.5-mile causeway to the village. The rock is full of 11th century Gothic buildings that offer very romantic scenery.
