There’s no shortage of scenic places to kiss in the renowned City of Lovers, like on a cruise down the Seine River, on the Eiffel Tower lit up at night or just about anywhere the city’s famous skyline serves as a backdrop.
However, Lonely Planet recommends an unusual place to stop for a smooch: the Père Lachaise Cemetery. That’s where you find the final resting places of artists, writers and famous lovers like Abelard and Heloise, as well as hundreds of other notable names. Ladies, don’t forget your favourite red lipstick to add your mark on Oscar Wilde’s grave.
If you’re looking for inspiration, head to the Musée Rodin to see Auguste Rodin’s famous work,The Kiss. Love is also a popular theme at the Louvre, where you’ll find romantic works like Antonio Canova’s Psyche Revived by the Kiss of Eros in addition to the scenic Tuileries and Carrousel gardens.
