Rome is known as the city of romance so its no surprise that it sits top of our list! Our top spot for couples is the Trevi Fountain, stand hand in hand throwing coins into the fountain together and making wishes for the future. 

2) Paris

Paris exudes romance, we recommend visiting Montmartre, with its cobblestone streets, it’s a charming place with breath-taking views of the city below. The most popular however is the Eiffel Tower which is even lovelier when lit up at night, no wonder it’s a top engagement spot!


The Kyoto Botanical Gardens is at its best in cherry blossom season (Spring), the perfect location for a romantic picnic. Adding to the romance factor are incredible temples and relaxing public baths.


Florence offers the wonders of great artists including Michelangelo and Botticelli, a fascinating city for art lovers to explore. For stunning views, we recommend going to the top of the Duomo. In the evenings candlelight traditional Italian restaurants are a plenty.


Argentina is the birthplace of the Tango and dancing is one of the most romantic things you can do as a couple, a dance class or two is a great activity for any couple! If dancing is not your thing then why not explore the streets and take in the incredible architecture together finishing off your day with an evening of wine tasting.


Quebec has a distinct European charm. This 18th Century city is also a UNESCO heritage site & is one of the most romantic cities’ in North America. If travelling in the winter, carriage rides and ice skating enhance the romance of this beautiful city.
