Love is beautiful, so why wait for a special occasion to celebrate it? There is Valentine’s Day, of course, but there is also every other day of the year when you can get away with your loved one in a small corner of heaven somewhere around Europe. Here are the most beautiful cities where love floats in the air and where you can spend an unforgettable experience for two, your perfect romantic getaway:
Paris is the European capital of love. Many couples have sworn eternal love in the City of Lights. The Pont des Arts is the most famous bridge in the French metropolis. The bridge crosses the River Seine and offers a spectacular view. In the past, millions of lovers left a lock here as a sign of their love, but some of the railings bent due to its weight. That’s how the authorities auctioned off “love.” Le Pont Neuf, Pont Du Carrousel are two other famous Parisian bridges. The Eiffel Tower or a walk under the moonlight on the Seine can be unforgettable.
Celebrate Valentines Day in one of the most romantic destinations, and you can also catch the Carnival of Venice, which ends on February 13th. Don’t miss a gondola ride on the narrow canals of the city! You will float smoothly on the water while the muted serenades accompany you. What could be more romantic! Maybe a walk through the Dorsoduro district, one of the most beautiful districts of the Italian city. In addition to its impressive architecture, the neighborhood has the most enchanting views of the Grand Canal Delta and the islands of La Giudecca and San Giorgio Maggiore.
Rome remains one of the favorite destinations for tourists. Villa Borghese Gardens remain green and idyllic space, even in winter. They are pretty close to the Spanish Steps, being a point of attraction for lovers. Couples can enjoy a fantastic view of the “Eternal City.”
If you have decided that Lisbon is the city where you can renew your vows of love, go to a fado show, and enjoy a Porto wine. Of all the attractions in Lisbon, the Belem Tower exudes romance. The tower, unmoved for hundreds of years, stands on a rock on the banks of the Tagus River. Surrounded by water, it will offer you exceptional views; you will see the city skyline and the immense Atlantic Ocean.
Austria has its charm; stories of princes and princesses, horse-drawn carriages inspire couples to choose this destination to celebrate love. Salzburg, in particular, the old Baroque city, sheltered by the Alps, will take you to another world. Incurable romantics can quietly admire the landscapes of “the most romantic city in Austria” where the famous Mozart was born.
One of the most picturesque places in Norway is Bergen. A splendid city with the atmosphere of tiny mountain towns and the Northern Lights in the background for an unforgettable holiday for two. Take a walk through the alleys, explore the colorful houses, and enjoy the fairytale atmosphere of the place. Make a stop in the Bryggen district, the fantastic pontoon, built-in 1702, and the UNESCO list.
