A proposal in Paris is always a good idea, and there isn't a more iconic sight in Paris than the Eiffel Tower.
Of course, if you want to propose in the city of love then your first thought is probably to do it at the iconic iron tower on the Champ De Mars. It's a beautiful sight, that makes for an iconic backdrop for your Paris proposal.
But there is one problem with a proposal at the Eiffel Tower.. crowds.
You can guarantee that if you go in the wrong place at the wrong time your proposal will be interrupted by thousands of tourists all gathered around and eager to get a picture for their social media channels.
And if there's one way to kill the romance of your special moment, it's a crowd.
So if you're looking for a more private Eiffel Tower proposal with romance levels fit for the city of love, here's the best places to do it.
Best places for an Eiffel Tower proposal
Shangri-La Hotel Paris
This five star luxury hotel in the heart of Paris was made for a proposal, with its private balconies with unobstructed views of the Eiffel Tower. It doesn’t get more romantic than a proposal at the Shangri-la. Just as the tower lights up and sparkle you will bend down on one knee with the most romantic views in the background. Enjoy champagne and macarons on your private terrace to celebrate!
Peninsula Hotel Roof Terrace
At the very top of this five-star hotel you will find a secret roof terrace, just big enough for two. Take the lift up to the top of the hotel and let the panoramic views of the "City of Light" serenade you as you go down on one knee and pop the question – and of course the Eiffel Tower is a part of your perfect backdrop. After you get the all important "Oui", you can enjoy a private dinner amongst the clouds.
Pont de Bir-Hakeim
The bridge with the best views of the Eiffel Tower, made famous from countless movies, such as Last Tango In Paris and Inception. A proposal here will take you back in time and make you feel like a couple from a silent movie, it’s perfect for a romantic proposal in the heart of Paris.
Avenue de Camoëns
If you are looking for a quiet place, mostly unknown to the everyday tourist visiting Paris, then look no further than Avenue de Camoëns. Hidden away from the main roads, this quiet avenue has one of the best views of the iron lady. Take a second to take in the views before you ask that all important question.
Hotel Plaza Athénée
This hotel was made famous by Carrie in Sex and The City when she visited Paris in the show. The balconies are ones to swoon over, and you can even request the Carrie room, which is a dream come through for any fashionista. Top this off with a proposal on the insta-famous balconies over breakfast and you will have made her dream come true!
Place du Trocadero
This square just opposite the Eiffel Tower is usually crowded with tourists, but lucky for you we know the perfect times to get here. If you get there just as the sun rises you will practically be alone, so rise and shine for a once-in-a-lifetime moment with just you, your partner and the Eiffel Tower. This makes for the most amazing photoshoot, so hire a photographer to capture the moment when you bend the knee and have him capture the iconic image with the Eiffel Tower in the background! A Paris proposal doesn’t get much better than this!
Another place in Montmartre for an amazing proposal is Terrass Hotel, where you can either stay at this lovely hotel with views across the city, or simply book a table at their very own roof top restaurant. Pop the question with the city of light as your backdrop.

Our destination planners contacted the famous macaron makers at Laduree to create a personalised tower with the couple's names and "Marry Me" written on them. It's not a proposal in Paris without macarons from Laduree!
If it couldn't get any more romantic, the terrace was decorated with Marry Me and love heart balloons, flowers and candles.
It was the ultimate surprise Eiffel Tower proposal! Our destination planners made sure Nav's dream came true when he bent down on one knee on a sunny afternoon in Paris with the magnificent Eiffel Tower as the backdrop!
