One of the world’s undisputed capitals of romance, Paris is a dream Valentines destination. You could wander through the city hand-in-hand to add your own padlock to the famous Pont des Arts, or head straight to the top of the Eiffel Tower for a meal at the famous Le Jules Verne restaurant. But at Paris Attitude we like to think outside the box when it comes to Parisian Romance. Read on to discover our favourite suggestions for a quirky Valentines day in 2014.
Indulge at the Nuxe Spa

The Nuxe Spa has a range of perfect solutions for a joint pampering session and uses only natural, plant-based products to make sure your Valentines day starts in complete relaxation.
