What is the Most Romantic City in the World?
Are you planning a romantic vacation with your partner? We have compiled some lovely suggestions and activities which will make you live and love a little more.
Here are some of the romantic cities where you can make that a beautiful proposal on the top of a cliff or grab a kiss at underneath a passage.
Spend a Romantic Holiday in the City of Love – Paris
Paris is an ultimate destination for lovers. It offers excellent activities you can do with your partner. Check out below:
Glide with your Partner at Bois de Boulogne
Moments in a boat with your partner is unforgettable. Take your partner to Bois de Boulogne, where you two can spend some quality time paddling a boat. The surrounding is filled with serene and romantic views.
From there you can move to the Jardin Shakespeare woods to see the beautiful flower, plants, and trees which Shakespeare mentioned in his plays. If you visit these woods in summer, the magical open-air theatre will mesmerize you.
Enjoy romantic walk along Canal St-Martin
Take your partner to a romantic walk to Canal St-Martin located between Rue de la Grange aux Belles and Quai de Jemmapes. Spend beautiful moments on the iron footbridge and the admiring atmosphere. Watch the bridge swings opening when boats pass the canal. You can also boat in the canal, or have a romantic sitting aside.
You can also enjoy your lunch here or linger with a bottle of wine.
Enjoy Shopping in covered walkways
When you go to Paris with your partner and she doesn’t ask for shopping is impossible. You will find a 19th century Paris when you stroll these passages. In Passage Verdeau, you can shop antiques and books (new and secondhand both). You can buy your girl some classic toys from Passage Jouffroy.
If you like collectibles, you should move south to Passage des Panoramas. Here, you will also find some delightful bistros mix and tea. One passageway I would like to recommend you is Jardin du Palais Royal, ahead of Passage de Panoramas, where you can have a look at the urbane designs of Galarie de Montpensier and Galarie de Valois.
Visit the love locked bridge, Pont des Arts
You may not find anything more romantic than a bridge covered with padlocks. Pont des Arts, a pedestrian bridge over the Seine, is lined with padlocks. These padlocks were engraved with the lovers’ names.
Unfortunately, a part of the bridge fell down in 2014 due to locks’ combined weight, leading to cutting down of padlocks in 2015. You can visit this romantic spot, putting a padlock with your partner. But keep in mind, the administration cuts away the locks after a certain period of time.
Propose at the Temple of Love
Even though you have already proposed your partner, but Temple de l’Amour is famous for this reason. It stands in the center of Versailles and pairs from all around the globe visit this place in their romantic tours. They either propose or hone their love vows.
It is believed that kissing your partner in the middle of this temple strengthens their bonding with each other.
If your tour is limited to Paris only, there is a temple of love Paris too, in the Vincennes Forest.
When to go Paris?
You can enjoy the best romantic experience in Paris in the months of April, May, June, and October to early November. Why? Because you can enjoy the weather which is mild, there are fewer crowds too. These months are best for your romantic visit.
If the budget is concerned, you should travel in the months of November to February, but the weather will limit you to few sites then.
Compliment Your Partner in the Lovely Skies of Aspen
Aspen is famous for skiing, hiking, kayaking, dog sledding and other outdoor activities. But here we will share with you some romantic things you can do in Aspen.
Ride to Aspen Mountain Summit in a Gondola
Although hiking is a great activity with your partner, riding the gondola while enjoying the scenic views around is even romantic. When you reach the top, enjoy lunch and dining with delightful treats. If you went at the top on Friday evening, the restaurant up there provides moonlight dinners and live music, making your every moment romantic.
Enjoy Water Rafting Adventure
If you are an adventurous couple, do try the White Water Rafting in Aspen. You can take a half or full day raft trips in different rivers, during which you can enjoy the amazing sights all around you, fascinating geology and unforgettable sledging experience.

One of the most romantic activities in Aspen is when you draft through the sky in a hot air balloon. This balloon flight will take you to explore the dynamic yet pleasing landscape of Aspen. You will see the unending panoramas of mountains and scenes of green & wildlife beauty on the land.

Your honeymoon trip is not romantic enough if you don’t visit this beautiful spot. The Maroon Bells offers the scenic impressions which will leave you gawking. This heavenly place is located at 12 miles of southwest Aspen. Once you are there, you will be stunned by the magnificent reflections of the two peaks in Maroon Lake. You can’t resist your camera making limitless clicks of this lovely place.

When to go Aspen?
If you want to ski with your partner, the best time is to visit from December to February. The snowfall season is best for winter sports. But this season is the most expensive of the year.
As far as your honeymoon or romantic visits are concerned, you should travel in summers i.e. between June to September, when the temperature is up to 70. You can enjoy rafting, hiking, and air rides. It is also the second most visited season of the year, but from September, the prices fell down. It is good if you book a few weeks in advance to gain deals or sales.

From Ponte Vecchio, take a walk down the River Arno, hand in hand and enjoy the lovely sunset and views around the river.
Surprise Your Partner with a Show at Teatro della Pergola
After a long day touring and exploring, what can be better than taking your love to a romantic candlelit dinner. Buy tickets for a show at Teatro della Pergola and surprise your partner by taking him/her to the show. You can enjoy some quality time watching a romantic show or opera.
When to go Florence?
Deciding when to travel to Florence can be a challenge. Florence looks finest in spring, from March to May. The sky is clear, the city is less heated, but the same city is crowded during these days too.
If you want to escape the crowd, visit in fall, from September to November. The temperature is fairly nice, and you can enjoy true Tuscan Cuisine including gamey roasts, pasta sauces, hearty soups and more. The evenings are so romantic during this period, as the city presents dozens of light hung in every street and corners.

You will find Vaporetto in €7 for one hour. I recommend you to get a travel card for a discounted tour in Venice. With travel card, the Vaporetto will cost €20 for 24 hours.

Although adventurous, if you or your partner like architecture, then don’t miss to go the Doge’s Palace. Built in a Veteran Gothic way, the palace offers magnificent exterior and interior. You can’t resist admiring the sophisticated artwork on walls and floor.

Admire the Pleasuring Looks from the Rialto Bridge
As you enjoy opera or visiting city all the day, the evening should be welcomed with a romantic dinner followed by a stroll.
Take a romantic candlelight dinner with live music in restaurants along the Rialto Bridge. This is the oldest bridge in Venice. As you stroll through the bridge, you will see the beautiful illumination of Venice. Sharing a kiss in the middle of the bridge is one of the most romantic activities in Venice.

Float in Love while Enjoying the Gondola ride
Although the Vaporetto ride is romantic, if you want to explore Venice only with your partner, nothing is better than the Gondola ride. Either it is your first visit to Venice or not, the Gondola ride will always sharp up your love.

Your romantic trip will not be completed if you don’t try a Gondola ride. Don’t forget to take wine or something romantic so you can enjoy it with your peer. Watching the amazing sights of the city, ancient buildings, and moving through the bridges is worth considering a Gondola ride.

When to Go Venice?
Deciding when to go to Venice depends on your preferences. Do you like crowds or escape them? Are you going for a holiday or honeymoon? Or are you going to attend events and parties? Let me share some seasons in Venice which may help you in taking the decision.
January to April – the Lovebirds Season
If you want to take your spouse on a romantic trip, these months are ideal for your pair.
In January, you can enjoy all the romantic things which I told you above (or can also find something new). Plus, January welcomes a Christian religious event Epiphany and la Befana on 6th.
But as you enter February, Venice becomes a heaven for you and your partner. Preparations for Venice Carnevale or Madri Gras start before the actual day of Shrove Tuesday, so the city looks under an atmosphere of Carnevale theme. Also, you get to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your Valentine in Venice, the perfect place for the perfect day with the perfect one.
And the Carnevale finally arrives in March. It is a sophisticated event where people are wearing costumes and masks. The city is packed with people and the day is celebrated with love, party, and the awesome fireworks. This is a must-attend event in Venice.
Not only that, Easter (sometimes), Women’s day, and St. Joseph day, all fall in March so this month is quite high in celebrations.
Following March, the month of April brings Easter (sometimes), but a more important is the feast day of St. Mark on April 25th. Activities include festivities in St. Mark’s square, Gondolier’s regatta, and tribute to the patron saint of Venice.
On the same day, men give their partner the Bocolo, a blossom of red roses.
From May to December – Party and Crowdy Season
May brings many events to Venice making it very crowdy. Labor Day, Festa della Sensa (takes place 40 days after Easter), and Vogalonga (the paddling race), are the occasions for which tourists arrive Venice.
June calls for Republic day and the Biennale Art Expo which takes place every odd counting year.
If you like partying in Venice with your woman, then you should visit in either July or November. Events like Festa del Redentore and Festa della Salute are the biggest events of Venice. They are celebrated as the plague ended in 1576 and 1631 respectively.
August, September, and October are the months when Venice rocks. The Ferragosto holidays, Venice Film Festival, and historical Regatta in August and September, whereas La Fenice and Halloween in October keep the heat high in Venice.
December is the month of Christmas, starting from 8th throughout the month. The best part comes on New Year’s Eve at Piazza San Maroc, where a big group kiss takes place and the sky is lightened with fireworks.
