Top Ten Most Romantic Cities in the World

venice-evening1. Venice

The serene Venice, witnessing the Casanova’s love affairs, is, upon many folks, the most romantic city. It is the capital of honeymoons, the place where lovers stroll on St. Mark’s Square or glide on the canals accompanied by gondoliers singing bel canto arias.

paris love2. Paris

This is the city of lights, the city of eternal love. Paris is the Aznavour’s Montmartre (La Bohème) and Dassin’s Luxembourg Gardens. On the occasion of Valentine’s Day, the Office of Tourism, the Congress of Paris (PCVB) and the Paris City Hall offer “Romantic Paris”, an event that is lasting all February.

NY love3. New York

A romantic city, the place inspiring many romantic films.

Suggestions: a walk in Central Park as in “Autumn in New York”, admire Tiffany’s windows as in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” or a romantic encounter atop the Empire State Building as that of Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan’s “Sleepless in Seattle”.

romantic-vienna4. Vienna

It is the romantic city of music! Mozart, Schubert, Beethoven, and Strauss have composed some of their best pieces and Klimt painted there “The Kiss”.

Vienna is also the city of Empress Sissi who inspired a series of films. And what could be more romantic than to waltz at one of the famous Viennese balls?

praha night5. Prague

One of the few major European cities that had not been suffering significant damage during the bombardments of the Second World War.

Prague has preserved its Gothic architecture, Romanesque, and Baroque. To do: a long walk on the medieval streets and a boat trip on the river Vltava.

Rome love6. Rome

Twenty-eight centuries of history, a priceless cultural heritage, and the typical Italian ambiance.

Rome inspires romance! We love fountains, cafes, sun, and the attitude of the Romans, always so charming with women and men.

barcelona night7. Barcelona

Between sea and mountain, the exuberant Spanish city of Barcelona offers lovers the heat of the beach and unforgettable nights in its friendly bars.

In the alleys of the Gothic Quarter or the shade of the architectural wonders of Gaudi, many small cafes invite to romance.

Buenos-Aires-Argentina-romantic8. Buenos Aires

It is the capital of tango – the most romantic and most passionate type of dance.

Women are elegantly dressed, and men compliment them.

Known as the most “European” among South American cities, Buenos Aires remembers the visitor about Paris; in San Telmo, a typical tango district, we can “feel” the beauty of Latin dances.

budapest night9. Budapest

An ancient and romantic city. To do: a night walk in the castle district whose picturesque streets are lit by gas lamps, cross the Danube via one of the beautiful bridges and then let themselves be pampered in one of the ancient spas.

montreal-city10. Montreal

Montreal is often listed among the most romantic cities in the world.

For Americans especially, Montreal is a blend of European charm and North American culture. For meetings, a romantic dinner, or going out in a bar or to a concert, Montreal has no equal.
