The 8 Most Romantic Cities In Europe

Europe is undoubtedly home to some of the most romantic cities in the world. If you are planning to book a romantic getaway for your loved one or you need a great place to pop the question, consider the cities below and take your partner/spouse on the trip of a lifetime.

In no particular order, here are my 8 most romantic cities in Europe:


Despite its seedy reputation, Amsterdam offers couples a beautiful, serene yet quirky setting. The unrushed pace of life in Amsterdam – complete with quiet canals, green parks and multiethnic restaurants – is by far one of the best settings for a quick romantic weekend away.


Known as the most romantic city in the word, Paris never ceases to amaze couples that visit it for the first time. The most romantic locations to pop the question or take your partner for an unforgettable walk include the Eiffel Tower, Bois de Boulogne, Île St. Louis, and the riverside along the Seine. Make sure that you do not forget those lovely intimate bistros!


You will always find Prague on any list that discusses the most romantic cities in Europe.Big but not overwhelming, Prague features medieval castles and stunning bridges. Prague is truly a gem for a romantic retreat in Eastern Europe.


Budapest is ideal for couples that enjoy privacy and a peaceful environment. I would highly recommended a night walk along the river embankment and a daytime visit to the city’s historical structures.


Also known as the cradle of the Renaissance, Florence features romantic restaurants, riverside walks and world-famous museums, offering a relaxed yet rich cultural experience.


Clear blue skies, a warm climate, unique architecture and ancient alleys, Santorini is undoubtedly the ultimate Mediterranean retreat for couples searching for a sunny, romantic island.


With its famous historical sites, high-end boutiques, tasty food and picturesque markets, Rome – especially by night – offers couples an unforgettable retreat. A perfect place to propose would be the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, or one of the characteristic Roman trattorias.


Strasbourg is located near the French-German border, offering the best of both worlds: romantic mini cruises and walks along the river, German-style flowered balconies and a truly peaceful, intimate atmosphere.
