There are only a few weeks left until Valentine’s Day and one of the star gifts to celebrate it making a romantic trip with your partner. Therefore, we review ten ideal Valentine’s day destinations in European cities for those who would love to enjoy this holiday in dreamy scenarios to enliven their love story.
The French capital is the city of love for excellence and one of the favourite among all valentine’s day destinations to celebrate. In addition to its star monument, the Eiffel Tower, Paris offers many other attractions such as the Arch of Triomphe, the Champs Elysees, the Trocadero Square, the Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Louvre, the Latin Quarter, the Sacré Coeur of Montmartre or the possibility of a romantic walk along the Seine river.
The Italian city is considered one of the most romantic cities in the world. Its stars, streets and squares, its bridges and its numerous canals crossing the city make it a magical place. One of the most romantic plans offered by Venice is to visit its canals on board of a gondola and, if you add the sunset on the Rialto Bridge, your trip will be even more spectacular.
The Italian capital and the so-called eternal city has thousands of excuses to be visited among which are also very romantic. Some of them are tossing a coin with a wish in the Fontana di Trevi or stroll along the Milvio Bridge and swearing love to your partner by leaving a padlock with your names and pulling the key into the river Tevere.
The Italian city is considered one of the world’s cradles of art and architecture and its historic centre was declared a World Heritage Site in 1982. But Florence is also an ideal destination to enjoy with your partner, especially if you walk around the famous Ponte Vecchio or if you visit the Michelangelo Square, better at night.
For a long time the capital of the Czech Republic is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Its historic centre was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1992 and is a city where you can breathe romance, especially when night falls. Some ideal plans for lovers is to walk from their castle to the Old Town Square crossing the Charles Bridge or visit Mount Petrin and climb its 60 meters high tower, a lookout to the structure similar to the Eiffel Tower, where you can enjoy an incredible panoramic view of the city.
Vienna is one of the oldest capitals in Europe, so it has an important artistic heritage. During the 19th century it was one of the great musical cradle of the world and it is still an ideal place to enjoy an evening at the opera. In addition, the city also seems to be made for romantic walks and features imperial architecture, horse carriages and the splendour of palaces and museums.
The Belgian city, known as the Venice of the North, is also considered one of the most romantic cities in Europe. Bruges is another city that is characterized by its structure of canals and bridges so one of the ideal plans to do with your partner is to take a boat trip. In addition, you can also explore its cobbled streets and enjoy the medieval architecture of this cosy and charming city.
The Hungarian capital is also one of the most recommended destinations to do with your partner. Budapest has been named the Pearl of the Danube and this river divides the city into two parts, Buda on one side and Petz on the other, linked by its famous and wonderful bridges. In addition to some obligatory visits such as the Sissi Palace or its Parliament, it also offers the possibility of relaxing in one of its spas.
The Scottish capital is considered by many one of the most beautiful cities of the old continent so it is one of the most ideal valentine’s day destinations to discover with your partner and invade their magic. Walking through its streets is to stroll through a medieval era that seems to be taken from a story and where predominates its imposing castle, one of the most famous in Europe. Like Budapest, Edinburgh is also divided into two parts: the old city and the new city.
The capital of Portugal is also an ideal destination for many couples. Among its many attractions are the spectacular views that can be seen from its viewpoints, its narrow and steep streets, the Castle of San Jorge and the Alfama neighborhood.
