Paris & Romance? Goes together right? Even though I haven’t been on the Forum for a few years, I know there’s some romantics out there on Rick’s Travel Forum so . . . . . .
My lovely wife and I will be in Paris in a few months to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Being the romantic that I am, I really want to do something special for our anniversary evening. I want to surprise her so I am doing all the planning for the night (don't worry about what you offer, she's not on the Forum).
However, having never been to Paris, I’m looking for suggestions for places/events to make it a very special evening. The tour books haven’t been helpful so far (For instance one book offered the restaurant on the top of the Eiffel Tower which sounds extraordinarily romantic, but then another book says its too over priced and touristy). So I thought - what’s better than the opinion of some of my "Helpline" friends who’ve already experienced something?
When considering what you might offer me, while I don’t think of us as too old for fun (late 50’s, early 60’s), we’re not what I would call part of the wild party set, but might enjoy a nice romantic dinner/show/stroll, etc… Unique ideas are good! It will be a Tuesday (I know some things are not always open everyday), also it will be early May. I’m not looking to break the bank necessarily, but if there was something “really special” that I should consider, throw it out there – I won’t make these plans based on $.
And if you think there’s something special we should do that day, I'd like to know also.
For the ladies – I realize you don’t know my wife, but if you were going to Paris to celebrate your anniversary, what type of romantic evening would you hope for.
For you guys – If you were planning a romantic night for your wife in Paris, what might you arrange for the evening?
Thanks in advance - gary
