How to spend Valentine’s Day single in Paris

Spending Valentine’s Day single in the ‘City of Love’ can feel like a bit of a cruel joke. Surrounded by couples planning their romantic evening up the Eiffel Tower, it can be difficult to know where to turn. But put down that single bottle of wine and ready meal for one, there are plenty of things for you to do too! We’ve compiled a list of some great non-romantic activities to enjoy if you find yourself single on 14th February:

1. Plan a great night-in

You don’t need a special champagne dinner in a fancy restaurant to have a great night. Open a bottle of expensive wine, cook yourself a delicious dinner, binge watch your favourite show, bake a chocolate cake… Show yourself some love and be your own Valentine. There’s no reason to just sit around feeling sad when you can enjoy some quality “me-time”.

    4. Join the Valentine’s Day Run

    Running the Course de la Saint-Valentin around the Parc des Buttes Chaumont in Paris’ 19th arrondissement is a great way to spend your Valentine’s weekend. Participants can run 10km solo, or split it between two and do 5km each. There is entertainment en route, and you can even join them for a soirée later on to wind down, meet people and make some new friends.
