This expansive district stretches along a large portion of the Right Bank of the Seine, covering the southwest part of Paris and the Bois de Boulogne. Numerous little parks, large avenues, tree-lined boulevards, Haussmanian buildings, and posh shopping streets are the backdrop of this wealthy district. The Trocadéro square, atop the hill of Chaillot, is without a doubt the most spectacular landmark in the neighborhood. Lying between two museums (Musée de l’Homme and the Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine), the Trocadéro’s wide plaza welcomes crowds of tourists stopping by to take the traditional photos directly across from the Eiffel Tower.
Unlike in some countries where everyone gets in on this lovey-dovey holiday from the earliest age, in France, Valentine's Day is reserved for adults in love. Kids don't exchange cards and the French wouldn't dream of offering anything to their friends for this fête.
To visit Paris is to fall in love, with the city, with the object of your affection, and above all, with yourself. Anyone who has ever stepped foot in the City of Lights knows that the French capital will charm you. Simply strolling the cobbled streets of the Right or Left Banks is an experience in indulging the senses.
