2. Enjoy the serenity at Square Jean XXIII Park
Situated right behind the Notre-Dame Cathedral, this park is a perfect stop-over to relax on a bench and take a break from the hustle and bustle of Paris. In spring, this is a must-visit because the cherry trees bloom in pink!
3. Strolling along the banks of Seine River
We love how a simple walk along the Seine river can also be a beautiful and timeless memory of your engagement.

There are a few carousels that located across Paris. Our favourite, The Le Carrousel De La Tour Eiffel is conveniently located close to the the Eiffel Tower. These merry-go-rounds brings will definitely bring some romantic fun to your photos. After all, isn’t love a carousel with its ups and down?
9. Shop like a Parisian at Galerie Vivienne
Galerie Vivienne is a hidden gem in Paris. This sheltered shopping street also doubles up as a fantastic location if it turns into a rainy day. Built in 1823, this well-maintained shopping arcade features an elegant glass canopy above and an intricate mosaic detail on the floor. Perfect!
10. Catching the best view of the Eiffel Tower at sunrise
It would be blasphemous not to include the Eiffel Tower in our list. Best to visit Place Du Trocadero at dawn, to catch the first light shining on the Eiffel Tower. Trust us, it will be worth it.
