THE BEST PARIS LOCATIONS

Amazing locations for your Paris surprise proposal!

I’ve explored every corner of Paris to find THE BEST locations for your proposal, so you don’t have to. I live here full-time and I know the absolute latest!

  • All locations are proven to create both a perfect location for a proposal AND the best possible environment for your photo session, minimizing the people in your images (not an easy thing to do in the world’s most visited city).
  • My surprise proposal package has been created to ensure everything will RUN AS SMOOTHLY as possible, minimizing your worry, nervousness and anxiety.
  • I’ve done the hard work so you can focus on your loved one, your proposal and having the time of your life.

Most clients prefer to propose at a location near the Eiffel Tower, but there are so many options other than the Eiffel Tower such as the Louvre, Luxembourg Gardens and Montmartre, to name a few.

I’m happy to help you select the location that is best for you, this is part of the comprehensive surprise proposal services I offer.

Eiffel Tower Trocadero 

Why is Eiffel Tower Trocadero a great location?

 

Eiffel Tower Trocadero has an iconic view of the Eiffel Tower which many people love, and it’s great for photographs. It has a straight on view of the Eiffel Tower and the fountains are on between the end of May and early September.

Because of its popularity with tourists visiting Paris, it’s the least private proposal spot in Paris, although in the morning it can be quite nice. That’s why I only offer Paris surprise proposals at Trocadero in the morning before 10:00 am, before it gets too crowded.

How do I get my loved one there? 

Going for sunrise to see the Eiffel Tower, going to brunch, lunch or getting to the Eiffel Tower early are some common scenarios.

Please keep in mind, sometimes this area is closed for special events (such as Paris Fashion Week), so it’s not always accessible and we’ll always have a backup plan.

Eiffel Tower Pont Bir Hakeim Bridge

Why is Bir Hakeim Bridge a fantastic location?

Bir Hakeim is a famous bridge in Paris. It’s a gorgeous, unique view of the Eiffel Tower and the bridge is beautiful and ornate as well. Perfect for evenings, as it’s much less crowded than Trocadero and is very quiet in the mornings. 

How do I get my loved one here? 

This bridge is a popular viewing point of the Eiffel Tower, so to walk across it is lovely. It’s quite near the Eiffel Tower itself, so it’s only less than a 10 minute walk from the Eiffel Tower. So you simply take your loved one for a walk.

This location is great in the evening because you can tell your loved one you’re going to dinner, and before dinner you just stop here to take in the view.

Eiffel Tower Riverside

Why is Eiffel Tower Riverside a wonderful location?

My clients love this location because you get a very close-up view of the Eiffel Tower and it’s usually rather quiet and quite private here, perfect for morning or evening proposals. It’s especially good for evening proposals, when you want to take your loved one to dinner afterward to celebrate your proposal.

How do I get my loved one there? 

A walk along the river is really romantic and you can get a great view from there, so it’s the view that will get them there! Also, there is a dinner boat nearby, so some people say they’re going to dinner there, or you want to check out the menu because you’d read about this restaurant on a boat. It’s called Ducasse-sur-Seine.

Eiffel Tower View at Pont Alexandre

Why is Pont Alexandre a super pretty location?

Pont Alexandre is a stunning bridge and tourist attraction in its own right.

Indeed, it’s the most beautiful bridge in Paris and there is a pretty view of the Eiffel Tower as well in the distance.

Great in the morning and quite nice in the evening, although there are of course a lot of people not only walking across the bridge in the evening but also stopping to take pictures.

This location is perfect for you if you don’t want to be near the Eiffel Tower itself but have a view of it in the background. 

How do I get my loved one here? 

Just a simple walk across the bridge, headed to dinner or sightseeing, and you stop to take a photo of the Eiffel Tower.

Eiffel Tower View at Passerelle Debilly

Why is Passarelle Debilly a great location?

Passarelle Debilly is a pedestrian footbridge and is not the most scenic bridge in Paris (that would be Bir Hakeim or Pont Alexandre), but the view is amazing. Being that it is a footbridge, you don’t have to worry about traffic either, and it’s relatively peaceful, although there are a lot of tourists on the bridge crossing over to the Eiffel Tower in evening.

How do I get my loved one here? 

Easy, you’re going to the Eiffel Tower and need to cross over to the other side of the river.

Louvre Museum and Tuileries Gardens

Why is the Louvre/Tuileries a magnificent location?

If you’re looking for something a bit different, still Parisian but without a view of the Eiffel Tower, this one is magic.

You’re in the Tuileries Gardens, one of the most famous gardens in Paris with a view of the most famous museum in Paris, the Louvre Museum.

While you don’t have a view of the Eiffel Tower from here, you have the stunning architecture of the Louvre and the peacefulness of the garden. This location is very quiet in the morning, just with runners and people walking their dogs.

In the evening people sit on green chairs and relax here, but it’s usually pretty calm and relatively private.

Please note that in the winter season there is no greenery or flowers planted. Instead, you can just enjoy the architecture without obstruction.

How do I get my loved one here?

Walking through the Tuileries Gardens is a favorite tourist activity, so a walk through the gardens is mandatory while in Paris. You could be walking to the Louvre, or walking nearby on your way to dinner.

Luxembourg Gardens/Medici Fountain

Why is Luxembourg Gardens a stunning location?

Luxembourg Gardens is just flat out pretty. There are many beautiful gardens in Paris, including the Tuileries Gardens, but I find Luxembourg the most magical of all.

There is no view of the Eiffel Tower at this Paris surprise proposal spot, but you have the beauty of the Medici Fountain and the rest of the garden. Please note, there are no flowers planted in the garden of note in the winter months. However, the area around the fountain tends to stay someone green with the evergreen plants there.

How do I get my loved one here? 

This garden is one of the most beautiful in Paris and a very popular tourist attraction, so going to visit is nothing out of the ordinary.

Montmartre

Why is Montmartre a charming location?

This is the most unique location in Paris for a surprise proposal.

Back in the day, famous artists like Van Gogh, Renoir, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec and Picasso, to name just a few, roamed these streets. You can still feel their artistic spirit in this vibrant neighborhood.

If you want to do something quaint and charming, in a scenic location, you cannot beat Montmartre. There is no view of the Eiffel Tower from the best proposal spots, but it is the utmost in charm! Think cobblestone streets, cute cafés.

There are several spots I recommend, some clients love the idea of proposing at the Wall of I Love Yous (the words I love you are written in tile in more than 90 languages) or on one of the charming streets in Montmartre.

How do I get my loved one here? 

Montmartre is a super relaxing place to visit in Paris and very popular with tourists. To roam around this neighborhood’s streets is a common thing to do.
