The title of the most romantic city in the world without a doubt belongs to Paris. The atmosphere oozes love and passion as it is home to many wonderful and picturesque places as well as lots of wonderful bars and restaurants to enjoy with a loved one.

Many people visit Paris on mini breaks with their partner and quite often to pop the question. Where better to propose than in the romance capital of the world. Here are some of the best places to get down on one knee, all within easy reach of top quality Paris hotels.

Notre Dame Cathedral

Notre Dame is one of the most romantic spots in Paris and the cathedral is simply stunning. The best time to propose here is on a clear night as the building is lit up beautifully and you can see stars in the sky.

The Louvre

For art lovers there is no more perfect proposal spot than the Louvre. Depending on your prospective spouse, choose from either inside one of the galleries, or outside by the glass pyramid made famous in recent years by the film The Da Vinci Code.

Eiffel Tower

There are very few people on Earth who would not recognise the Eiffel Tower and its position overlooking Paris makes it a great place to pop the question. Travel up to the top and ask when in up high for maximum effect.

Arc de Triomphe

Another monument you can go to the top of is the Arc de Triomphe. This is often the first thing you see that let’s you know you have arrived in Paris, and the view from the roof is spectacular.Proposals are something you both will remember for the rest of your lives. Make it spectacular by taking your loved one to Paris to say those four magic words. For added wow factor try visiting one of these places at sunset in the summer. Book a hotel now and start practicing delivering that all-important line.

I'm a marriage proposal planner in Paris since 2006, and with more than 1500 spectacular marriage proposal planned in 10 years, I have some advices.

The Arc de Triomphe and the Louvre are definitely NOT good places for a proposal. A proposal at these places is called, in Paris, a "tourist proposal".

The Eiffel Tower can be nice, but only if used as a romantic backdrop for the proposal. Proposing while visiting the Eiffel Tower would be a mistake: very windy, overcrowded, with souvenir vendors and tourists with screaming children everywhere. Sometimes I ever saw two men getting on their knee at the same moment: embarrassing and a little bit ridiculous for everybody.

There are many unexpected romantic spots, in Paris, to propose in a memorable way. Don't do the mistake to do a "tourit proposal"!
