Most Romantic Cities for Couples

When you go away for a romantic couples’ break – the last thing you want is to end up in a city that is anything but. The fact is, some cities just ooze romance (maybe because of all the romantic films that are filmed there) or maybe just because of the romantic atmosphere and the beautiful scenery.


Either way, if you’re booking a city getaway for you and your partner and you want it to be a romantic love-fest, then sticking to one of these destinations is a sure fire way to get your romantic experiences guaranteed. Have a look at these five most romantic cities for couples:



Paris, France

Ah Paris, The city of Love. This location is perfect for a city break where you can relax in a corner café sipping coffee and watching the world go by. The French capital oozes romance, it’s even where Tom Cruise proposed to Katie Holmes (and if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for us!).

New York, USA

This beautiful (but very metropolitan city) is perfect for walking hand in hand along the busy streets (whilst being totally in a world of your own). Go to cheesy diners and pretend to be back in the 1950s, get to the top of Empire State Building and enjoy the magical sunset together, take the Staten Island Ferry across the River and feel the sea breeze in your hair. This city is a couple’s paradise.

Venice, Italy

They say, one should always take their first Gondola ride with the one they love – so when taking your first trip to Venice together, this should be number one on your list. We can’t think of anything more romantic than slowly sailing between the cobbled streets of Venice watching the sun go down and having a cheeky kiss.

London, England

London is the cosier and slightly low-key version of New York. You have the West-End for those romantic nights at the theatre and some superb dining restaurants for a candlelit dinner for two. The real romance though? Strolling along the Embankment in the evening and enjoying the beautiful views of the London Eye and Parliament reflected and glimmering in the Thames.

Rome, Italy
