Romantic Horse & Carriage Rides Through The Center Of Paris

It's only been a decade since horse-drawn carriages again appeared on the streets of Paris. Now you have the chance to experience what it was like when Paris was a horse-powered city. A carriage ride is quite a unique — and romantic — affair.

While a 4-person carriage tour makes for a wonderful family activity, we tend to think of it as more fairy-tale like, layered with romance. We suppose we think that way because of the options for rides featuring champagne, flowers, and even an opportunity for a marriage proposal. Let's look at some Paris horse and carriage activities.

Horse & Carriage Ride in the City of Light

Horse & Carriage Rid A horse-drawn carriage in front of the Petit Palais

This horse-powered ride past the iconic monuments of Paris is lovely for romance, but it's also a good choice for a family, two couples, or a group of friends.

The ride begins at the Eiffel Tower (where there are plenty of opportunities for some memorable travel photos) and takes you at a slow trot past the Arc de Triomphe, along the Champs Elysées, around past the Grand Palais and Petit Palais and across the bridge to the Trocadero. The Heavenly Ride option lasts for two hours.



Absolutely amazing!! The best way to see the sights and with a glass of champagne! The guide was also fabulous. Highly recommend this."

Romantic Horse-Drawn Carriages in Paris

Romantic Horse & Carriage Rides in Paris

If you want to spend time in Paris with someone special, perhaps to ask a certain question, there's nothing quite as romantic as one of the horse and carriage rides that come complete with champagne. There's no place better for one of life's very special moments than the most romantic city in the world.

Our top recommendation for romance or a proposal is the Royal Champagne option at 6 PM, a 1½ hour ride that includes a bottle of champagne. Everything is arranged for you; all you have to do is show up with your beloved.

Paris by Night in a Vintage Citroën


It's not horse, but horsepower and just as romantic. Your "gentleman driver" meets you to take you on a retro tour of the city in a sleek, black Citroën Traction Avant. You'll feel like you're in a 1940s movie set in Paris as you tour the famous sights. It's fun seeing the city like this. As we said in our review, this is "retro luxury from another era."
