France is one of the most romantic countries in the world. Several cities are just perfect for couples. Therefore, if you are planning a special vacation or your honeymoon, start with this guide.


What girl didn’t dream of a romantic trip to Paris? So that the engagement in France doesn’t turn out to be banal, you can think over and implement any, even the most unexpected scenario, which can be realized, for example, riding a boat on the Seine, walking along with Versailles, having a romantic evening in a strange castle, watching a magical sunset, or going to see the Eiffel Tower.

Also, this city is especially recommended for those who want to deal with boredom in a relationship.


This beautiful alpine city in southeastern France is stunning with magical views all year round. Its medieval buildings, cobbled streets, quaint canals, and bridges are fascinating. A fabulous city near a crystal clear lake, surrounded by snow-capped mountains is a perfect place for a winter holiday. Real romantics must visit the Pont des Amours (or Lovers’ Bridge). Legend says that if a couple kisses here once, they will stay together for life.


If you want to organize a romantic trip, then Marseille is the place for you. Marseille is not only a city for cultural tourism. It is also perfect for engagement because it has many beautiful bays on the coast. On a wonderful coastline stretching for 20 kilometers, fabulous landscapes and nature are predominant. We recommend you to pay attention to Calanque de Sormiou, which is a charming place to “drown in love!”


This city is located on the English Channel and is widely known for its picturesque coastal cliffs. The breathtaking view of these cliffs and the fresh air in the countryside will encourage you to take the most important step that you have always dreamed about. Etretat is the perfect place to declare an immortal love for your soulmate.


Originally used for trade, the port city of Bordeaux is now synonymous with quality wines. For those who prefer to spend free time on excursions, there are many vineyards, wineries, and professional tours, within which you can explore the entire wine route of Medoc. The Grand Theater gives the region even more passion and romance, which often hosts opera and ballet performances, and an 11th-century cathedral and unique museums add cultural appeal to the city.


Small streets, canal bridges, and a patchwork of colorful buildings make Colmar a wonderful city to travel together. Offering stunning varieties of half-timbered medieval houses and Renaissance architecture, this city is a perfect place for cultural explorers. It is best to enjoy the sunset with a glass of delicious wine because you are in the capital of the Alsace region. And don’t miss the Christmas market next year, which is known as the best in the area.


It is located near the German border and just a few minutes drive from Colmar. This is a colorful town in the center of the Alsatian wine route. In 2013, it received the title of the most favorite village of France. Its concentric streets are filled with vibrant floral decorations and sloping half-timbered houses. It is nice for evening walks, which perfectly end with a good glass of Alsatian wine, of course.


This hillside city overlooking the Loire River is a great backdrop for a romantic weekend. Visit the atmospheric Late Gothic cathedral. To make your stay even more romantic, why not reserve a table at the restaurant marked in the Michelin Red Guide, L’Orangerie du Château?
