Having a romantic dinner is one of Valentine’s Day’s favorite activities. Paris has so many romantic restaurants that they cannot all be named, but I do want to mention one that surpasses every location: a super romantic dinner at Versailles.
The Oré restaurant Ducasse au Château de Versailles opens its doors for an exclusive dinner in one of the 17th century restored salons, on the first floor of the Pavillon Dufour. This salon has an exceptional view of the royal court. Not very cheap, but absolutely unforgettable!
