Paris is the world capital of romance! Generations of lovebirds have embraced in all parts of the city.

Among these, the couple immortalized in 1950 by Robert Doisneauin front of Paris City Hall. You can reproduce the kiss by posing with your sweetheart against the railings of the entrance to the metro.

Other classic locations for a photo: the Trocadéro esplanade with the Eiffel Tower in the background, the first floor of the Eiffel Tower, the Montmartre hillside steps below the Sacré-Coeur, the steps of the Palais Garnier Opera House, the square in front of Notre-Dame, the bridges spanning the Canal Saint-Martin … Not forgetting, the tremendous view up the Champs-Elysées from the Place de la Concorde.
