If you wish to treat your loved one to a romantic getaway, consider setting off on tours to Europe. The opportunities for city breaks to celebrate your love are endless in this region, and here are some of the most romantic European cities you can mix and match for your ideal amorous getaway.



Without a doubt, the capital of France, Paris, is a most favored destination for romantic getaways in Europe.

The city has a vibe of romance like no other place and no matter what time of the year you come here, you’ll see couples enjoying the views of the Eiffel Tower, taking leisurely strolls on the paths of the Tuileries Gardens, and sipping champagne in the city’s many small cafes.

It’s no wonder that Paris ranks highest in the “world’s most popular honeymoon destinations”!

Geneva, Switzerland

Switzerland’s splendid city located on the shores of Lake Geneva can steal your heart!

Just imagine tasting delicious chocolate on the promenade while enjoying views of the Swiss Alps and the striking Mont Blanc.

Exploring the old town of Geneva, taking a trip to the 12th-century fairy-tale Chillon Castle standing right on the shore, going on a dreamy boat ride along the vast lake, or hiking up a mountain for picturesque vistas are just several suggestions for an unforgettable pastime in Geneva.



Rightfully, Venice is one of the most romantic cities in Europe (and the world), attracting thousands of lovebirds from around the globe with its charming atmosphere of long-drawn gondolas swaying along petite canals.

Enigmatic street artists in Venetian carnival masks, the delightful Rialto Bridge playing in the rays of the sunset, people admiring the grandeur of Saint Mark’s Basilica!

And the small boats heading to the Murano and Burano Islands, bursting in vivid colors - Venice is surely a place to discover with your special someone.

Prague, Czech Republic

Purest romance awaits those who choose to travel to the mind-blogging capital of the Czech Republic, Prague, that is rated high among the romantic places in Europe.

Take in the beauty of the lush Prague Castle, feel the history as you cross Charles Bridge, pass the Town Gates and make your way to the inviting Old Town Square.

There's also a twist to the modern side of Prague, so don't forget to flow into the rhythm of the adorable Dancing House.



This Portuguese gem is one of the most romantic places in Europe that will cuddle you with sunlight and soothe with the sound of its yellow trams gliding by the Atlantic Ocean and the white-stone Belem Tower.

To embrace the lovey-dovey spirit of Lisbon go to the many viewpoints set on the city's hills and enjoy the postcard image of the red roofs, colorful buildings and the blue waters.

Those wishing to absorb the sweet feeling of a fairy tale should take a trip to Sintra that is located near Lisbon and is home to outstanding castles like the Pena National Palace.

Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona’s young spirit and bright colors touch everyone’s feelings. Capture the moment for eternity as you see off the sunset while sitting on the Barceloneta beach.

Other recommendations to spice up your getaway to this beautiful city in Spain is to go to the splendid Park Guell with the sweet-looking gingerbread houses, rise to Mount Tibidabo on a funicular and ride a Ferris wheel up top.

For a gastronomical taste of Barcelona, head to the La Boqueria market, situated in the old town.



A destination blooming with love, Amsterdam will sweep you off your feet with its beauty and abundance of flowers.

If you wish to see the perfect Netherlands picture you’ve had in your head (the one with hundred-year-old windmills peacefully spinning in the gorgeous surroundings of dazzling tulip fields) it’s best to plan a romantic trip here in spring.

As for other flavors of romance, try renting bikes in this world bike capital or casually explore the narrow streets of the city on foot.
