10 most romantic places in Europe

There's nothing like travel to stoke romance. The sights and sounds and smells and tastes of new places can stir your passion for living, and sharing those thrills with another is a perfect way to build your relationship.

Untours are made for love, giving you space to spread out in an apartment, autonomy to do your own thing, and a local host who can make suggestions for the perfect date night.

Here are our favorite places in Europe for romance! Share these Untours with someone special.

Paris

Because no lovers ever said “We’ll always have Cleveland.” And for about 300 more obvious reasons having to do with beauty and the art of living. Paris. Always Paris for romance.
 
By Day: Try a visit to the Rodin Museum and a stroll in the neighborhood. Then share a cafe table and a lively chat at a cafe on the Boulevard Saint Michel.
By Night: Take an evening stroll along Canal St. Martin and its surroundings. Then enjoy some Cabaret. (From tame to risque, traditional to artsy, you have great options. Reserve in advance.)

Rome

There's something about the history, the energy, the beauty of its art, architecture and people of Rome. The ambience of evening strolls past floodlit temples and fountains. Oh, and everyone flirts here, no matter how old they are.
 
By Day: Tour the intimate Galleria Borghese Art Museum, which never gets too crowded, thanks to timed admissions. Then enjoy a stroll and picnic in the park. (Museum reservations required.)
By Night: Sip prosecco al fresco on the Piazza Farnese or coffee at Bar della Pace, then a late-night stroll along the cobbled pedestrian streets of the Centro Storico, with stops at its floodlit monuments and fountains.

Venice

The intimate narrow alleys, the tranquility of a carlessless space, and the beauty of the canals and crumbling stucco make Venice a place to be shared with someone you treasure.
 
By Day: Splurge on a gondola ride through the back canals and narrow passages of Venice. This is even better by night but is also more expensive. Board in an off location and don’t let your gondolier hook up with another gondola!
By Night: Dine canalside at a small neighborhood restaurant in Santa Croce. Then stroll the narrow streets and side canals in the moonlight, pausing to admire the facades of churches and palaces as you go.

Greece

Nothing gives you more perspective than exploring the ruins of past millenia, imagining the people and civilizations that have come before us. With the drama of history and the natural beauty of mountains and coastline, Greece is a natural.
 
By Day: Explore the ancient ruins of Corinth, holding hands as you contemplate the many families who lived, worked, and died here. Find a shady, quiet spot for a picnic.
By Night: Enjoy a seaside walk in Nafplio and drinks on the floodlit Syntagma Square. Try a shared bottle of Ouzo with a bowl of ice for full immersion.
 

Alsace

Sometimes the best way to foster romance is to escape from the humdrum of daily life. The picturesque villages and vineyard landscapes of Alsace feel like a fairytale, a world away from the mundane.
 
By Day: Take a drive along the Wine Road, dropping in at small wineries for tastings, and enjoy a lunchtime stroll in a quaint town like Riquewihr.
By Night: Share raclette and white wine at a table for two, then enjoy a quiet stroll along the cobblestoned alleys and a drink at a quiet town inn. Toast with Cremant d'Alsace!
 

Barcelona

The energy of Barcelona is contagious, from the convivial buzz of its bars to the bustle of its streetscape. Lose yourself in the museums, parks, and cathedrals of this strikingly beautiful city.
 
By Day: Escape the crowds of Las Ramblas, kick off your shoes, and take a quiet walk on the beach. Or visit Búnquers del Carmel for a view over the city.
By Night: Start with tapas in a cozy bar, then splurge for dinner at one of Barcelona’s hot restaurants, like Àbac, Roca Moo, or countless others. (Reserve in advance.)
 

German Castle, Bavaria

What could be more romantic than staying in a medieval castle on the Romantic Road, with the baron’s regal hospitality and gorgeous surroundings to explore together.
 
By Day: Discover charming towns like Rothenburg ob der Tauber, a village so quaint, you’ll feel like characters in a fairytale as you explore.
By Night: Watch the sunset from the bucolic castle grounds. Enjoy a moonlit stroll around the castle with your prince/princess, then retire to your cozy, antique-filled castle hideaway.
 

Amalfi Coast

This stretch of coastline offers some of Italy’s most dramatic views, with its rugged cliffs and colorful towns. Enjoy the beaches, the hiking, boat rides, and relaxing together in Amalfi and on this most beautiful coast.
 
By Day: Enjoy a leisurely stroll through Positano and a before dinner drink outdoors at a beachfront bar.
By Night: Share a multi-course, candle-lit dinner in a dark grotto restaurant in Atrani, washed down with Limnocello. Then take a slow stroll through Atrani's cozy piazza to the beach.
 

Swiss Oberland

Let the blue skies, clean lakes, and crisp mountain air revive you. The Berner Oberland is an amazing place. Discover the tranquil beauty of the Alps on some of the region’s most beautiful trails and peaks, and share your own private moment of awe.
 
By Day: Hike the trails to sweeping views of Alpine mountaintops, pristine lakes, and wildflower-filled meadows. Relax together afterwards on the scenic train ride home.
By Night: Share fondue in a cozy chalet restaurant, then enjoy your own Swiss chocolate tasting under the stars on the balcony of your mountainside apartment.
 

Vienna

There are few cities that are as regal as Vienna. Full of old world charm, dazzling palaces, and fertile gardens, it is a beautiful spot for a romantic getaway, with lots of music and art to stir your senses.
 
By Day: Share an art encounter with the secessionist artists Klimt and Schiele, taking in their paintings at the Leopold Museum of Art.
By Night: Dress up for an orchestra concert or opera, and then stroll around the warmly lit city center afterwards, stopping for a drink. (Book tickets in advance.)
 
Life is short, and marriage is long. Plan your second honeymoon or romantic getaway today!
