Paris romantic surprise - any ideas?

Jump to last reply

Spouse's birthday will fall on our last night in Paris. We have been before and love the city and just planned to walk and take it all in this time - no hectic sightseeing. Without knowing anything about us, I was just wondering if anyone has any ideas for a nice birthday surprise, whether it be a special event at one of the landmark locales, or just a nice hidden unexpected gem. We are pretty simple people and just enjoy the people, sights, sounds, tastes of the city. We are staying in the 9th arrondissement.

- no specific financial considerations
- dressing fancy will probably not be doable, we'll be traveling very light
- thinking about trying to have our hotel help me out, perhaps with surprise breakfast in bed?
- private boat ride on Seine?
- any areas/events that a tourist would not typically think of, even if off the beaten path?

Many thanks.
