The world's most romantic places to propose: Eiffel Tower

Somewhere traditional No list of romantic settings is complete without Paris, the city of love. Try this for romance: Make reservations at Jules Verne, the restaurant at the top of the Eiffel Tower, and arrange for the waiter to put your engagement ring atop a chocolate truffle. If all goes well, your sweetheart will spy the ring, blush and say "Yes." If, however, she swallows the truffle whole without looking, you may be proposing on the way to the emergency room. Sandra Smith, a honeymoon specialist for Michigan-based Directional Strategies Travel, arranged a dinner like this for a client and is happy to report the former scenario as an outcome. "It's the most beautiful setting," she said.
