If you’re looking for a city escape to Europe, Paris is the leading city for couples when it comes to romance. Kiss atop the Eiffel Tower, have a picnic near the Louvre, walk hand in hand down the bustling streets of Paris, explore art galleries, visit Disneyland Europe, and plenty more. Whatever you desire, Paris is sure to be able to offer it to you.


As obvious as it may seem, Venice is a perfect place for couples and love-seekers, especially if you visit it in February, during the famous Carnevale, or in autumn, free of masses of tourists. The best way to feel its spirit is to wander around the city and, at some point, get lost in its narrow streets and along the tiny canals. When you are in Venice with your partner, make the most of one of the city’s romantic legends: take a gondola ride and kiss each other under the Bridge of Sighs at sunset for a guarantee of an eternal love.
