The most romantic day of the year is approaching and it comes with endless ways to say “I love you.” A bouquet of flowers, some chocolates, a special dinner, or a spa afternoon. There are thousands of options to celebrate Valentine’s Day, but the traveling mood can help us, that’s why we bring you the ten most romantic corners of the world to celebrate February 14 in a very special way.
1. Paris, France
Paris is undoubtedly “the city of love” par excellence. A walk along the Seine at the Bateau Mouche, a visit to the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Invalides Palace or the Montmartre district, or a coffee at the Eiffel Tower, everything in Paris invites you to be romantic.
2. Venice, Italy
And if Paris is the city of love, Venice takes the first prize to be the city of lovers. Built next to the Adriatic Sea, this Italian city hooks you from the first minute. No stress, no traffic, no traffic lights or beeps, just gondola rides through its 150 channels.
3. St. Petersburg, Russia
“The invented city, the most fantastic and premeditated in the world”, said the Russian writer Fyodor Dostoevsky, and it is in that Saint Petersburg, the city of the stars, romanticism is present in every corner. Its streets, its palaces and its bridges, everything in it have a history. There are many corners to visit in this city, but without a doubt, the Bridge of Kisses, from which the sailors said goodbye to their girlfriends when setting sail, is one of the most magical places.
4. Bruges, Belgium
The Lake of Love, always surrounded by swans, a boat trip on the Dijver River, or a visit to the Beguinage, make Bruges one of the most romantic places to enjoy Valentine’s Day. The capital of Flanders is a fairy-tale city surrounded by canals, an ideal place to enjoy a perfect weekend plan.
5. Edinburgh, United Kingdom
It is one of the most unknown cities in Europe and although it does not have the same reputation for romanticism as the previous ones, we assure you that watching a sunset from Edinburgh Castle or walking through its cobbled streets will transport you to other times. Get lost for a weekend in this beautiful medieval city and don’t forget to visit its fantastic and huge Botanical Garden that recreates landscapes from all over the world.
6. Seville, Spain
Seville has a special color, and that cannot be denied, that is why this city is the perfect place to fall in love. There is nothing more romantic than taking a walk through the alley of water while enjoying the authentic Sevillian courtyards of the Barrio de Santa Cruz, a visit to the gardens of Parque de María Luisa, or watching a sunset on the Paseo de Marqués de Contadero next to the golden tower.
7. Rome, Italy
There are many names that Rome has received throughout history, but perhaps the one that best defines it is by the one it is best known by: “the eternal city” since it hides corners of all times. Enjoying movie views from the Gianicolo, the Spanish Steps at sunset, the Trevi Fountain, the grandeur of the Colosseum, or a walk on the Milvio Bridge, full of locks with signs of love, make Rome an unforgettable place to visit and enjoy Valentine’s Day.
8. Istanbul, Turkey
It is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and its sunsets do not leave anyone uninterested. On one side Europe, on the other Asia, this corner of the world mixes East and West in its mosques and palaces, in its streets, in its traditions, becoming a dream place to celebrate a Valentine’s Day.
9. Amsterdam, Netherlands
It is known as the “Venice of the North” for the beauty of its canals, which have about 1,281 bridges. In this city, you can witness some of the best sunsets in Europe on a romantic boat trip after visiting the Van Gogh Museum, the Anne Frank house, or enjoying a relaxing time in a coffee shop.
10. Maldives Islands, Maldives
Who has never dreamed of a paradise island with white sand, a crystal clear turquoise sea, and no one around? In the Maldives are the most romantic islands in the world and that is why we cannot think of a better plan for Valentine’s Day than traveling to Rangali Island.
