Place du Tertre - Paris
This is the place to come if you want to get your portrait, or that of your travel companion, drawn. Walk around this small square and look over the shoulder of an artist as he draws someone; or drink a coffee at one of the cafes which line every inch of the square.
The Place du Tertre is very romantic at night. You may want to go for a lovely musical dinner.
