Valentine's Day on the Left Bank
Posted in Discover Paris le
So that you can celebrate Valentine's Day in your own way, the team of the Hotel de la Motte-Picquet, a few steps from the Eiffel Tower and the Invalides, shares with you some ideas to make the occasion even more magical...
Off the beaten track
Of course, you could stick with the tried and tested aspects of a romantic tryst in Paris, including placing a padlock on the Passerelle des Arts, taking a selfie on the forecourt of the Sacré Cœur basilica, walking hand in hand through the Tuileries, etc. But, during your stay at the Hotel de La Motte-Picquet, you can also get off the beaten track. For example, why not go to the Jardin du Musée du Quai Branly? Intimate, surprising, fascinating, it will isolate you from the world for moments of pure happiness. As it’s also very close to the hotel, you could visit the Rodin Museum and its superb rose garden. The sculptor’s most iconic works are found amidst the groves. Finally, don't miss taking a stroll along the Seine. From the foot of the Eiffel Tower to the Musée d'Orsay, the panorama of Paris is simply magical.
Enjoying the Left Bank
There’s no shortage of places near the hotel where you can enjoy delicious moments for two. Visit the Café Lignac and savour a generous and aesthetically pleasing cuisine. Do you enjoy relaxing around shared tapas? Head to the Comptoir des Fables, close to the hotel. Or treat yourself to a gourmet break at the very British tearoom of the Bon Marché. Make yourself comfortable in the rotunda where the large windows look out onto the Rue du Bac, and enjoy the Parisian atmosphere of the oldest department store in Paris.
From the beauty of the attractions to the romanticism of the cafes and restaurants, the Hotel de la Motte-Picquet on the Left Bank offers the perfect setting for your romantic Valentine’s Day break.
