10 romantic cities in Europe for your Valentine’s Day getaway
Valentine’s Day is two weeks away and it’s time to finalise your romantic plans. Thankfully, Europe is brimming with beautiful cities that are perfect for loved-up couples! So even if you’re not wanting to travel very far - and don’t want to spend too much money - you’ll find somewhere that’s perfect for you and your partner to fall in love all over again.
Paris is considered one of the most romantic cities in the world for many reasons. Whether it’s dinner at the top of the Eiffel Tower, a coffee date on a cobbled street, a night at the Moulin rouge, or an evening stroll along the Seine.
Prague boasts elegant palaces, 17th and 18th century architecture, scenic cobbled lanes, and incredible city-wide views from both Prague Castle and Letna Park. It’s not called the City of Spires for nothing.
One look at a photo of beautiful Budapest and you know it’s a city perfect for loved-up sweethearts. The Danube runs through the heart of the city with glitter lights illuminating its bridges and grandiose palaces lining its banks. It’s the perfect place for an evening stroll (or even a proposal).
The first of two Italian cities on our list is the world-famous Rome. Sample delicious food, sip on the some of Europe’s most renowned wines, and explore beautiful streets. It’s the perfect place to fall in love.
Lisbon is becoming increasingly popular for all kinds of globetrotters, including couples. And when you look at the beautiful architecture and taste the fresh seafood, it’s not hard to understand why.
If you’re looking for something a little bit closer to home for your Valentine’s Day escape, then it has to be London. Book your sweetheart tickets to their favourite show in Covent Garden, treat them to a luxury dinner in Mayfair, or watch the sunset from the top of the London Eye.
If your sweetheart adores impressive culture combined with luxurious surroundings – then Vienna is the perfect destination! Visit world-class art museums, catch a show at the Opera house, and share pastries while sipping artisan coffees. Perfect!
Where better for a romantic city break than the home of fairytales? Admire the Little Mermaid statue and the Dragon Fountain, then wander down cobbled streets lined with pretty painted townhouses. Finally, snuggle up in the evenings in traditional Danish Hygge style.
Italy is a romantic country as a whole and we couldn’t possibly only include Rome (narrowing it down to two was hard enough!). So we’ve also included Venice, a city filled with mouth-watering food, beautiful side-streets and – of course – the iconic gondolas.
What could more romantic than snuggling up under the glittering Aurora Borealis? Book yourself a city break to Iceland’s magical capital and sign up for one of their many Northern Lights viewing tours that take you out with the city.
