The best couple destinations of Europe
When it comes to romantic destinations and honeymoon travel, it simply cannot get more magical than Europe. The continent boasts of a plethora of breathtaking locales and magical sights which take you from your world into something which seems to be right out of your fairy tale books. Whether you love modern day lifestyles, beautiful cultures, a vibrant nightlife, old world villages, breathtaking vistas, majestic sea beaches and lake shores or exquisite cuisines, Europe has everything that you can dream of and more. Here is a list of the best best couple destinations in Europe. So what are you waiting for? Pack your bags and take your sweetheart to a holiday that she will never forget.
London might seem to be an unusual choice in a list of romantic places, but that’s only until you see the whole picture. London is one of those unique cities where the romance lies in the bursting life. No two days of your itinerary in London will ever be the same and the romantic moments are far more impulsive than most other places. Those who still argue about London being an improper choice simply need to visit the Hyde Park with their loved ones and a bottle of wine at night. A stroll around the lake and cuddling under a weeping willow tree offers a sense of romance that would leave the most magical cities in the world behind. If you still need more coaxing simply head to the River Thames and look at the mesmerizing sight of the water, the bridges and the lights. The best way to explore the Thames is by a boat cruise. As they say, sometimes the traditional ways are actually the best options available.
09. Santorini, Greece
There is no doubting the fact that Santorini, a crescent shaped island is a must see for all romantics. Santorini is particularly popular for its magical sunsets, ancient excavations, old world towns and breathtaking natural beauty. To truly explore the grandiose and the beauty that the island has to offer, you must make sure that you visit its black sand beaches, explore the architecture of the Ancient Akrotiri, visit the historic city of Manolas and catch the mesmerizing vistas offered by the Caldera.
08. Capri, Italy
They don’t make places like the mesmerizing isle of Capri anymore. The island has been one of the best couple destinations in Europe ever since the Romans ruled the world. The Blue Lagoon might be the most fascinating and attractive attraction in Capri, but it also offers other magical spots such as the Augustus Gardens, the Villa Jovis and the Arco Naturale. The presence of secluded coves, stunning natural beauty and fragrant flowers which scent the air also helps to add to the romantic aura.
07. Tuscany, Italy
With olive groves hiding the mesmerizing towns that are brimming with age old architecture, a spectacular array of old world winding streets, an ancient feel and surreal natural beauty, it doesn’t get more thrilling than Tuscany. From the mountainous areas of the Northern Lunigiana to the seashores of Maremma, every inch of Tuscany offers tourists with a romantic charm and beautiful aura.
Prague, known to be one of the prettiest cities in the world, is full of ancient castles, beautiful cathedrals, colourful houses and cobblestone streets. Its picturesque settings, resilient past and a dark legacy help to provide it with a magical feel and its reputation for survival is what made the city so famous all over the world. The true beauty of Prague lies in its unique blend of beauty, Gothic and dark sights – a place where beautiful houses stand side by side to gargoyles. In other words, the city of Prague offers a real life representation of the beauty and the beast. It is also believed that Hitler spared Prague from destruction because he felt that its beauty needed to be preserved. Remember to visit the Prague Castle, take in the nighttime views on the Charles Bridge and explore the old world architecture.
05. Mykonos, Greece
Mykonos is by far the most famous Greek islands and is brimming with tourists in the summer months. However, if romance is what you want, delay your trip until the next fall or spring seasons, a period when Mykonos is known to a lovers paradise. Some of the best things to do in Mykonos is to simply do nothing, watch the sunsets from under the windmills and have intimate dinners with your loved ones at one of the quaint restaurants which have been happily tucked away from the public eye.
Most tourists think of the French Riviera or Paris the moment they think of a romantic destination in France. However, one of the least known and yet one of the most beautiful spots in France is the village of Eze. Eze sits on top of a lonely cliff which overlooks the St. Jean Cap Ferrat and the Mediterranean Ocean. However, what truly makes this medieval era village extremely magical is the presence of old world pathways that lead to mesmerizing courtyards and picturesque squares. Furthermore, the views that the village offers are among the best in Europe.
03. Corfu, Greece
Corfu, used as a backdrop by greats such as Shakespeare and Homer, is the most famous Ionian island. It is located off the Albanian coast and is known to be an extremely enchanting place for couples and honeymooners. The island is known for its passion, Byzantine era churches, old world Venetian fortresses, exciting nightlife, old world streets, a charming atmosphere and beautiful whitewashed houses. It is also known to be one of the best places to explore the true beauties offered by Mother Nature. The scent of citrus and olives from the surrounding groves and the sight of lush green landscapes which are dotted with wildflowers are more than enough to provide the perfect backdrop for that ultimate romantic escapade.
Venice is unlike any other place that you’ve heard about. A city which boasts of more artistic masterpieces per sq. m. than any other city in the world speaks volumes about its rich culture and artistic heritage. The fact that more than 20 million tourists visit the city each year speaks volumes about the popularity of Venice as one of the most surreal and romantic destinations in the world. The beauty of Venice lies in its old world streets, magnificent architecture, mesmerizing sights, museums, monuments, old world churches and of course, the Grand Canal. Whether you spend time at the designer boutiques that throng the city or splurge at one of the casinos, whether you walk through narrow alleys which are lit by old fashioned oil lamps or huddle close to each other on a walk over bridge which overlooks the canal, whether you check out Renaissance paintings or cuddle up with your loved one in a gondola, the sights of Venice never fail to amaze.
01. Paris, France
When one talks about the best couple destinations in Europe, it really doesn’t get better than Paris. Paris is the place where all your dreams come true. It is a city which is brimming with sensual pleasures – the very best of wines, food, art, fashion, architecture, theatre and music are just around the corner waiting to be explored. Like millions of other lovers who share the city with you, the best things to do in Paris include serenading your sweethearts at the top of the Eiffel Tower, having a drink at one of the many outdoor cafes, embarking on a cruise on the River Seine and cuddling under the city bridges.
