Best Spots in Paris for a Proposal

Marriage Proposal for a Public Eiffel Tower

If you’re considering popping the question at one of the two restaurants or atop the Eiffel Tower, we’ll be the first to tell you no. Around you would be a horde of interested onlookers. Not to mention, it doesn’t exactly seem romantic to be engaged atop a wrought-iron tower. Hey, the whole point of the plan for the Eiffel Tower is to have the 324-meter-tall Iron Lady in your photos, isn’t that right? Instead, think about where your spouse could feel most at ease.
