Autumn is the perfect season for couples: You can snuggle up under a warm blanket, light a candle and enjoy a cozy night at the fireplace while the temperature outside start to drop. However, instead of spending this time in the UK, a short getaway to romantic Paris will certainly be appreciated by your significant other. If taking the Eurostar is a bit too dear for your budget, then the coach represents a perfect opportunity to reach the city of love for little money. Bus trips from London to Paris are a real bargain starting from £10.
Paris has a lot to offer for couples in love from numerous sights to extraordinary restaurants. You can take a walk along the river Seine, which will lead you from the Eiffel Tower past the Louvre museum directly to Notre Dame cathedral. A hike up Montmatre is highly recommended as well. Not only can you visit Sacré-Cœur but you will also be rewarded with a breathtaking view of the city. The spot is particularly popular at sunset. To upgrade your trip up the hill, simply take a picnic blanket, a baguette and some champagne. If you fancy a shopping spree, then the Champs-Élysées or the department store Galeries Lafayette is awaiting you with the latest haute couture. A successful vacation in Paris should end with a candlelight dinner in one of the many Michelin star restaurants, which line the streets of the French capital.
Taking the bus to Paris is convenient and inexpensive. Coach trips are offered by several British companies such as Eurolines UK and megabus. Overnight connections are available as well, so that you can board the bus after work and wake up in Paris the next morning. In the wake of the liberalisation of the French intercity bus market, international coach companies, such as FlixBus and OUIBUS have also expanded their networks and offer ever more direct connections between the UK and France as well as within the Grande Nation itself. So should you get bored of Paris – which is not likely to happen – taking another bus to the Côte d’Azur does not pose a problem whatsoever.
