The 5 most romantic cities in the world

Feb 13, 2014 by The Go Ahead Tours Team


1. Paris

Sure it’s cliché, but not without good reason. Walking along the Seine, exploring artsy Montmartre, shopping the Champs Elysées—there’s something for everyone. When the Eiffel Tower ignites after dark, even the most jaded of couples will find it hard not to sneak in some handholding after a few glasses of red wine.

2. Florence

The birthplace of the Renaissance and opera, this Italian favorite is a great getaway for lovers of art and lovers of love. Get your fill of cappuccinos and palazzos—or opt for easy daytrips to scope out Pisa’s iconic off-kilter skyline, the rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside or the charming villages of Siena and San Gimignano.

3. Prague

The Czech capital offers gorgeously preserved castles ripped from fairytale pages and a monumental Old Town Square that features an astronomical clock that’s been ticking for over 600 years. Those with more modern tastes will love a swing by the Gehry-designed Dancing House, a whimsical mix of architectural styles that mimics a twirling couple.

4. Buenos Aires

The Argentine capital melds [European elegance with Latin soul into a vibrant venue for modern romance. Did you know it's known as the Paris of Sotuh America? The al fresco daytime lifestyle (think outdoor cafes and all-day promenades along tree-lined boulevards) gives way to a steamy nightlife perfect for you and someone special—it takes two to tango, after all.

5. Kyoto

Japan’s spiritual capital, Kyoto is home to endless Zen gardens, fragrant cherry trees, the glittering Golden Pavilion and the 17th-century Nijo Castle, which features floors that sing like a nightingale. Sip sake with your sweetie over a steaming shabu-shabu dinner or take in some traditional entertainment, such as the kyogen comedic theater or a geisha dance.
