Europe’s Old-World beauty has long since been revealed and revered, but its breathtaking cities eternally promise travel that’s timeless. Quaint alleys twist and turn with no rhyme or reason in a labyrinth of discovery, and charming cobblestone streets expose magnificent churches, fairy tale castles, and bustling markets filled with some of the freshest food you’ll ever taste. It’s easy to lose yourself in the romanticism of it all, but we encourage you to get lost with the one you love in these most romantic cities in Europe.
The Czech Republic’s capital mesmerizes with a beauty that rivals Paris but an atmosphere that’s uniquely its own. This city has been relatively untouched and undamaged for centuries, and its medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque styles have been well preserved. From the breathtaking views of Prague Castle to strolling hand-in-hand over the 14th-century Charles Bridge in search of Old Town Square’s famous and intricate Astronomical Clock, you’ll find that Prague is a work of art. Be sure to head to a pub for a pint of what many consider the best beer in the world.
There are many who argue that no one does romance better than the Italians, and with a passion for superb food, an elegant language, and a country that was the home of St. Valentine, we’d say they make a pretty strong case. As the birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence is a fantastic city to celebrate your new beginnings on your honeymoon. But couples at any stage of their relationship will be mesmerized by its quaint alleyways, delicious wines from nearby Tuscany, and great works of art from Michelangelo and Botticelli. When you spend an evening in the Oltarno district watching the sunset over jaw-dropping views of the city, that’s amoré.
O.K., technically this isn’t a city, but islands are always romantic. Add hilly layers of white Cycladic houses and the orange glow of sunsets and sunrises on the Aegean Sea and Santorini inspires love on a whole new level. This Greek island is routinely voted among one of the world’s most romantic, and it’s about time you discover why. Spend sun-soaked days on the beach, afternoons sipping wine at vineyards and tavernas, and mornings stepping into the past at the Akrotiri archeological site, a Minoan Bronze Age settlement.
This wouldn’t be a true list of romantic cities if we didn’t include Paris. The “City of Light” has grandeur around every corner. From its variety of intricate architecture that displays centuries of styles, to its decadent food, to the iconic Eiffel Tower dominating the Parisian sky, this city was made for enjoying life’s pleasures, especially with the one you love. Don’t be surprised to see open displays of affection here, as Parisians admire and revere declarations of love, even if it’s as small of a gesture as holding hands. It’s no secret that Paris has some of the most renowned art museums in the world. While they tend to be extremely popular during the day, marvel at your own pace and go in the evening for an intimate experience.
Europe was made for lovers, and there’s nothing better than getting lost in the quaint alleyways, secret streets, and bustling markets of its cities. We will be your director of romance and help you plan the honeymoon, anniversary, or couples retreat of your dreams to one of these lovely destinations. Call us today!
