On Friday, we are always happy to plan our weekend after a busy working week. We will help you choose you next LoveCity.
Following our France-inspired week, we are delighted to present you Island:
Temple of Love
If you feel like a particularly good sunset might be coming on, there’s a special place in Paris to make a bee-line for with your date. I’m serious about the whole “Temple of Love” thing– that’s what it’s actually called, sometimes also referred to as the Temple Romantique, and it sits on an island in the middle of a lake in the Bois de Vincennes, the largest public park in the city.
Built by an architect in 1860, influenced by the Rococo movement, the temple has a twin in another park of Paris, the Buttes-Chaumont, except this one is much less well-known, so you won’t be sharing your romantic moment with dozens of other couples trying to do the same.
Take a tour around the lake until you spot the Temple of Love from the shore. You can either access the island (Île de Reuilly) by the bridge on the other side of the lake or rent a little rowboat to get you across, which will get you extra points on your date, especially if you manage to nab one with your love’s name written on it…
