I was not very willing to post an article about Valentine’s day. Mainly because of the very marketing and consumming buzz around it. But as celebrating Love stays a good idea, I change my mind.
So if you haven’t got time to plan anytihing: this article is for you.
I invite you to discover a small museum not so wellknown whose name is very appropriate for this day placed under the sign of love: le musée de la vie Romantique which for Valentine’s Day offers a day of free public opening of its new exhibition :“Coeurs. Du Romantisme dans l’art Contemporain.. The museum will be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and will offer entertainment throughout the day, music, dance, guided tours, etc.
What about to know everything about Love ? Le Palais de la dévouverte studied it under all of its aspects let’s discover the new exhibition (in english) On Love
You are sensitive to the aquatic dream, so why not an evening at the Paris Aquarium which offers you a romantic evening for Valentine’s Day: visit the aquarium with a glass of champagne.
A more classical idea: A spa !
Duo massage are still a good ideas and many spas in Paris are offering them.
But what do you thing to leave the experience of a spa in the darkness ? Try Le Spa dans le Noir !
I am very fond of l’Echappée, a place dedicated to wellness and relaxing with a hammam and Jacuzzi of course but also a wide rande of massages an beauty treatments.
One Paris’s nickname is the city of Love so I have no doublt you will find the right places to say I love you in a Parisian garden or parcs or have a romantic dinners in good restaurant or you can find also tons of excellent and lovely chocolate boxes in Paris. Among the famous chcoolate shops in Paris my favourite are: Patrick Roger, La Maison du Chocolat, Jean-Paul Hévin, Jacques Genin, Chapon.. But I have 2 addresses I particularly like :
Jicara chocolat: 91 rue des Entrepreneurs 75015 Paris: I love the design and that the boxes are also in chocolate and in original and beautiful shapes.
Le Cacotier: 44 rue Verneuil 76007 Paris: I love the taste’ of their chocolates and theirs designs as well.
My last recommendation is for a TED Talk that mention that writting love message is very powerfull and has lot more impact than any flowers or gifts.
