One of the most romantic cities around the world, sometimes referred to as The Floating City, situated on 118 small islands, it is something you have never seen before!

Amsterdam is sometimes referred to as the Venice of the north, but it has much more to offer than just beautiful canals.

We also must mention the national flower, the tulip, which are all over the place.

5. Vienna

The capital and the largest city of Austria is the perfect choice, and not only in summer; it doesn’t get any more romantic than visiting Vienna in winter. However, the city is magical throughout the year with over 100 museums, street art scenes and many churches and architectural buildings, you will always wish to spend more time in Vienna.

6. Oia Santorini

The popularity of Oia Santorini is quickly growing and it is no wonder. You would hardly find a more romantic place on any island in Europe. Thus, Oia is a great destination for all couples. Delightful Greece cuisine and refreshing nightlife are pleasant perks.

7. Porto

The second-largest Portuguese city is one of the oldest European cities. Its historical core was proclaimed a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, so it comes naturally that there are many gorgeous historical buildings. The city has a really romantic atmosphere, amazing restaurants for great prices and you can drink the world-famous Port wine here like nowhere else.

8. Seville

This historic city is not just for those who enjoy elegant architectural buildings. Watch authentic live flamenco shows, drink local wine or take a taste of tapas. Whatever the case, in Seville you will always have something to do.

9. Prague

Prague is one of the cheapest capitals in Europe and still one of the best destinations in the world. Prague’s Astronomical Clock, still operating after 600 years, one of the oldest bridges still in use or the largest castle complex in the world will make you understand why Prague should be on the itinerary of every passionate traveller. Also, we can’t forget to mention that Prague is considered to be the beer capital of the world.

10. Florence

Florence is home of the Renaissance, full of history with museums and galleries which contain the work of some of the most famous artists, such as Michelangelo, Botticelli and Da Vinci. The city lies in the heart of the Tuscany region, which means that it has the perfect location for day trips. Delightful food, impressive buildings and the many romantic spots around the city make Florence just irresistible!
