Nowhere in the world is more romantic than Paris, so why not celebrate Valentine’s Day in the ‘city of love’ by booking a stay with your partner at Hotel Opera Lafayette? Discover beautiful parts of the city and famous attractions that are perfect for lovers, all of which can be easily reached from the hotel in minutes by metro or taxi.

Make the one you love feel special as you explore the delights of the capital together. From the iconic Eiffel Tower to the romantic banks of the River Seine or the ‘I Love You’ wall at Montmartre, there are dozens of exciting locations to visit as a couple.

Magical sights and attractions for couples

The Eiffel Tower is an essential stop on any romantic interlude and the new first floor offers a thrilling view of the city through its transparent glass floor. Take the lift to the top or climb the stairs to sip a glass of champagne at the bar before enjoying the spectacular panoramic view.

A visit to Montmartre is a wonderful treat for true romantics. The ‘I Love You’ wall was created by artists Claire Kito and Frederic Baron as a monument to eternal love and adoration and is located at the centre of the Abbesses gardens. Made from 612 tiles of enamelled lava, the wall covers an area of 40 sq. metres and is decorated by intermittent splashes of red to symbolise the heart. The phrase ‘I love you’ is written on the wall over 1000 times in over 300 languages.

Complete your perfect Valentine’s Day in Paris with a romantic moonlight walk on the beautiful banks of the River Seine before returning to your cosy and inviting room at Hotel Opera Lafayette.
