If you’re looking to take your partner away on a romantic trip our list of cities where romance flourishes we are here to motivate and help you. Here are the top 5 most romantic cities in the world.
1. Paris, France
Paris is widely known as the “City of Love” and offers a romantic experience like no other. Exploration is key here, so ditch the itinerary and just wander around. Head to a bakery with your partner for fresh pastries, sit down at a bistro in the afternoon for a glass or two of wine, and admire the architecture as you stroll the cobbled streets of the Marais at sunset. Hearing and speaking French can only add fuel to your romantic fire, as French is considered the most romantic language of all. If you want to make your stay in Paris to a new level, consider staying longer and taking a language course together.
2. Rome, Italy
The Italian capital is one of the most versatile cities to visit with your partner. Few places are as historically significant and charming as Rome, and the hint of nostalgia that permeates every nook and cranny makes it even harder to resist, especially if romance is your thing. And did we mention that the culture and food are second to none? Need more convincing? Watch some classic movies like Roman Holiday (1953) or La Dolce Vita (1960) and tell us we were wrong.
3. Venice, Italy
Here’s a classic that no one can resist. The magical charm of Venice is unmatched and undeniable. Over the years, Venice has managed to turn even the most stubborn critics into worshippers thanks to its picturesque canals and cosy gondolas. The only downside to a trip to the capital of romance is that you won’t be the only one. The city is visited by more than 20 million people every year. We recommend travelling a little off-season to keep things a little more relaxed (and intimate) – early spring (Valentine’s in Venice anyone?) and late fall are good times.
4. Berlin, Germany
The most beautiful and interesting city in Germany sometimes gets a bad reputation for being stodgy and a little rough around the edges. But Berlin has a secret: Berlin is one of the most tolerant and open cities in the world, where love is possible without stigmas and restrictions. In this progressive city, you can be who you are and with whom you want. Grab your partner and dive into this vortex of parks, museums and history – and treat yourself to a club night or two (if that’s what you want).
5. Budapest, Hungary
The Hungarian capital is on the rise – and now’s the time to visit the motherland of quiet love before the crowds arrive. A quiet vacation away from the deafening noise of the busy streets could be just what you and your partner need. You can sneak a kiss on the Széchenyi Chain Bridge or walk along the Danube River to enjoy romance to the fullest. Budapest’s out-of-the-way places and underrated attractions will always inspire you.
