A European vacation with someone special is always romantic, but step inside one these three cities, and you just might feel something magical.
The City of Light is practically synonymous with romance, whether it’s because of the charming cafes, romantic French culture or simply the stunning architecture that allows for picturesque views of the entire city. Take a cruise along the Seine, enjoy an aperitif at an outdoor cafe nearby, and take in the Eiffel Tower’s twinkling lights lit up at night. If you have time during your stay, venture to Versaille for a stroll through the fairytale-like gardens and magnificent chateau of King Louis XIV.
Famous for the balcony that represents the iconic love scene in Romeo and Juliet, Verona has become a haven for those looking for a little romance. Leave a love letter for Juliet at the balcony, stroll through cobblestone streets to catch the sunset and end the evening with a romantic dinner in the 150-year-old Locanda Castelvecchio.
The waterways of Venice exude romance, especially when that includes a gondola ride for two complete with Italian music. But aside from the typical gondola ride, Venice is home to moving operas, winding streets and tucked-away “bacari,” small local bistros that serve wine and small bites.
