Paris and romance, they go together like champagne and oysters, coffee and croissants, that\'s why beloved couples make a pilgrimage to the French capital every year on Valentine\'s Day or go on honey moon in the Ville Lumière. But why is Paris the \"city of love\" and does it really deserve the title?

\"e6ac7f0bcae9638a7ed00692a494d7cc\"What makes the French capital, more than any other city in the world, considered THE romantic city par excellence and THE destination par excellence for Valentine\'s Day getaways and newlyweds.

The beauty of Paris

With the great central Paris designed by Baron Georges Haussman, as well as the charming cobbled streets of Montmartre and the Marais, it is no wonder that Paris is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

A walk through the city hand in hand is certainly more romantic than a ride on a bus or metro, and the small size of Paris and its wide streets make it an ideal place to stroll around and admire the scenery. There is always something beautiful around the next corner.



The cinema, ambassador of the city\"Midnight-in-Paris-2011-Woody-Allen-04\"

Over the years, many films such as \"French Kiss\", \"Amélie\" and \"Minuit à Paris\" have incorporated a certain idea of the French capital that is difficult to shake. Not to mention Woody Allen and his romantic betting show.




The romantic aspect is a cultural and artistic heritage.

Because it is considered a romantic city, and many artists have portrayed it as a city where love is king.The romantic aspect is a cultural and artistic heritage, with the romantic current in literature (Rousseau, Hugo, Mme de Staël, Musset, Chateaubriand...). It is also tributes in music in the repertoires of Charles Trenet, Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel, Joe Dassin that have contributed to the popularity of this expression. Paris is an open-air museum-city, which offers many activities commonly considered as \"romantic\": walks along the Seine, strolls in parks and gardens, visits to museums, cruises on flyboats, the many restaurants celebrating French gastronomy...



The reputation of Parisians, romantics and flirts?

The French are considered to be romantic Latins. Being the \"lovecapital, foreign tourists will therefore often associate Paris with the fact that it symbolizes the whole of France and therefore the city of lovers. Moreover, throughout the world, the French have indeed the reputation of being effective seducers. The French language, itself, is often considered one of the most beautiful and therefore seductive by foreigners. True or false, this first factor could explain the influence of Paris as \"the most romantic city in the world\".

Brigitte - Social circles

Bonsoir, my name is Brigitte. I’m the ultimate Parisian. There isn’t a VIP evening that I miss out on. When I was 18, I hunted autographs and stole photos of stars walking the streets of Paris or in concert. Vanessa Paradis, Catherine Deneuve, Jean Dujardin... they’re all in my book. It wasn’t very difficult as my parents produced concerts and I grew up in this fascinating world. I’ve turned it into a profession since I’m a people journalist! I now set up meetings with the stars and can question them without their bodyguards getting rid of me like they did in the past. I’d love to tell you more about these so French VIPs…
