Traveling is the only thing you spend money on that makes you richer in the end. Sounds funny, but it’s true. Even if you’re not someone who enjoys traveling, it’s safe to say that visiting certain places can culturally, emotionally, and spiritually improve your well-being.
Also, everything’s better when you’re someone you love, so going on a romantic trip is a perfect chance to strengthen your relationship and learn something new. Europe is abundant with many historic locations that ooze romance, so if you’re thinking about going somewhere with your partner, here are some of the most romantic places in Europe that you should consider in the future.
Maybe Budapest is not the first place on your radar, especially when it comes to romantic locations, but the truth is, the Hungarian capital has so much to offer to all the lovebirds who decide to visit it. For example, Margaret Island (Margitsziget), located on the Danube river, is a lovely romantic spot loved by locals and tourists alike. If you’re less of an outdoorsy type, you can always swing by The New York Palace Café and treat yourself and your partner with some tea and tasty desserts. Also, walking along the Danube river is one of the most romantic experiences in Budapest, especially during spring and summer.
Everyone knows about the beauty of Paris. This amazing and iconic city is known for its romantic atmosphere and gorgeous architecture. Because Paris is so cinematic and fashionable, this means it’s an amazing destination choice for both new and long-term couples. After you get tired from strolling from one landmark to another, you can visit one of the monumental cafés and restaurants, or, even better, climb the Eiffel Tower to admire the view and share a kiss or two.
There’s something uniquely magical about Venice. Maybe it’s the canals and gondolas, or St. Mark square and numerous pigeons that live there. Whatever the reason, visiting Venice is probably one of the most romantic experiences out there. However, since Italy has been in quite a difficult situation lately, and traveling during COVID19, can be risky, make sure to get informed prior to taking a trip. Venice is best experienced from a romantic gondola ride, so feel free to treat yourself and your partner to this wonderful experience.
Vienna is like a mean friend who actually loves you to death. The city itself might not exude romantic vibes, but it’s actually beautiful and full of surprises. You can even book a horse carriage ride for two, enjoy a live opera show for free, or have some peaceful time in gorgeous parks and charming cafés that are all over this wonderful city. If you’re a fan of Central-European architecture and culture, then Vienna is definitely worth a visit.
If you and your partner are into art, then look no further than Florence. The capital of the Tuscany region has a lot to offer. Art lovers should definitely visit the Uffizi Palace and Gallery that has some of the most beautiful Renaissance art in the world. If you prefer to spend time outdoors, then you definitely should visit Boboli Gardens, a 45000 square meters area that hosts some of the most gorgeous plants and flowers. It’s perfect for a romantic afternoon while eating gelato.
Europe is abundant in romantic locations, so choosing one of these should not be a difficult task. Each one of these locations has something special to offer: from historic museums, galleries to amazing architecture and delicious food, of course. Therefore, if you feel like doing something special with your partner, feel free to spend some time in some of these wonderful and romantic European destinations.
