If you’ve already moved into your Parisian apartment, you’ll surely be wanting to explore the capital together… but where to start? Don’t worry, we’ve put this article together to help guide you through the 4th arrondissement. One of the most romantic areas of Paris, here are our ideas on what to do as an expat couple in the 4th arrondissement of Paris.
Visiting the Notre Dame cathedral is a must when it comes to any Paris first timers. However, this spot of Paris is not only famous because it is full of history and culture but mainly because it is a real expression of love for art. This Parisian monument has inspired great writers like Victor Hugo to write one of France’s most famous stories and continues to inspire people from all around the world through its magical and mysterious atmosphere.
On top of its outstanding French Gothic appearance, couples love Notre Dame for the stunning views of Paris it offers. The cathedral is located in the 4th arrondissement on the Île de la Cité, surrounded by the River Seine, and couples cannot resist this colorful and enchanting backdrop. The flower market is located right next to the cathedral on Allée Célestin Hennion, 75004 Paris and has been there since 1808. This is a wonderful, interesting place to visit, particularly because it becomes a bird market on Sundays!
Intimacy comes hand in hand with romance and Paris’ secret alleys are easily the most intimate places in the capital. Paris is meant to be discovered on foot, particularly by getting lost in it. Don’t hesitate to explore the tiny streets that certainly have some secrets waiting to be discovered.
Many restaurants in Paris are considered romantic because they are hidden and allow couples to experience a delicious meal in a typically Parisian alley. The Marais neighborhood located in the 4th arrondissement of Paris is famous for its intimate spots and good restaurants.
You could give it a try in Au Vieux Paris d’Arcole, located at 24 Rue Chanoinesse, 75004 Paris, if you want to eat traditional French food in a beautiful Parisian restaurant.
