1. Venice

Venice Italy

Venice is Italy’s maze-like city made of villas of cobblestones, which are all floating above the water. This is why it is very famous for its scenic canals. You and your partner can traverse these canals using one of the charming gondolas.

2. Rome

Rome, Italy
Italy’s capital, Rome is also a city with lots of cobblestones, which are perfect for that long romantic walk while holding hands with your special someone. The city is popular for its historical sites such as the Flavian Amphitheater where you can relive the gladiator age.

3. Porto

Located on Rio Douro’s coast, Porto (also seen as this post’s featured image) is one of the romantic cities in Portugal. It is a portside town where architectural styles and colors converge. The classical state buildings, extravagant baroque churches, medieval bell towers, and pastel townhouses are just lovely and perfect backdrop for that long and deep conversation with your partner while sipping a cup of coffee or tea in a nearby café.

4. Santorini

Santorini, Greece
Considered as Europe’s best wedding destination, Santorini is undeniably a romantic place where couples can spend quality time together. Caldera is its famous island where unique white townhouses are set against the calming blue sea. Waking up early in the morning to the dreamy scene in the photo is just heaven.

5. Cinque Terre

Cinque Terre
It seems like Italy is never getting short of romantic places for couples. The Cinque Terre is another portside town in Europe where couples can enjoy a breathtaking view of the picturesque man-made and natural landscape. The place is one of Mediterranean’s best-preserved semi-natural and natural areas. The scenic view of vibrant colors of the townhouses set against the emerald green sweater is just lovely.

6. Florence

The capital city of Italy, Florence was declared as a UNESCO World Heritage in 1982. The awe-inspiring beauty of Pitti Palace and the Roman monuments are what make the city so lovely especially during night time when all the lights are on. It is also a haven of artworks, which you and your partner can enjoy viewing before or after a fine dining experience.

7. Cesky Krumlov

Cesky Krumlov
If you’re looking for a perfect place for the honeymoon, you should highly consider Cesky Krumlov in the Czech Republic. It is one of Europe’s most romantic cities primarily because of its artistically colored castle, picturesque houses, river, and winding streets. There are classy hotels that cater to on-budget couples as well.

8. Budapest

The capital of Hungary, Budapest is also a popular destination for tourists and couples. They visit the place to have a view of the spectacular bridge and Buda Castle. Tourists are allowed to walk at the top of the tunnel beside Buda. This gives them a wonderful view of Danube.

9. Bol

Bol Croatia
A gem in Croatia, Bol is a town in Brac Island where couples can enjoy the charming beauty of hotels by the sea. The sea has different hues of blue and green, which makes tourists’ stay truly relaxing and rejuvenating. The best about the destination? It’s relatively cheap compared with other European destinations.

10. Paris

Paris, France
The list won’t be complete without one of Europe’s most iconic landmarks – the Eiffel Tower located in Paris. The baroque architecture, cultural saviour, Art de Vivre, and the impeccable rustic charm are what make Paris an undeniable and standout romantic destination.

These destinations will make your vacation truly unforgettable. You and your partner will definitely have a great time whatever is your choice. I personally want to explore each in the future. Hope to bump into you in one of these destinations one day.
