10 cities more romantic than Paris

posted on 9th of february, 2015


It's that time of the year again, and if you're thinking about hitting the road with your sweetheart for the Valentine's weekend, let me suggest you 10 cities more romantic than Paris. In no particular order:

1. Prague, Czech Republic

Filled with mystery, Prague is the beautiful capital of Czech Republic, waiting for you to discover its castles, stone bridges, and ancient cathedrals.

2. Venice, Italy

Its narrow cobblestoned alleys, hundreds of bridges and iconic canals will make you feel like in a labyrinth of love.

3. Bruges, Belgium

You may call it Belgium's Venice, but it has much more than romantic canals and footbridges. Don't forget to taste the belgian chocolate and belgian beer, you'll thank me later.

4. Santorini, Greece

I don't know anyone who wouldn't want to wake up to a view like this. Basically, any meal can turn into a "romantic dinner".

5. Verona, Italy

Home of Romeo and Juliet, need I say more? Yes, I need to say more. Romeo and Juliet is just a story, but the Roman Amphitheatre, Castelvecchio, Verona Cathedral, Lamberti's Tower and St Peter's Castle are all real. And wonderful.

6. Buenos Aires, Argentina

In the worldwide capital of tango, you will find out what passion truly means.

7. Lisbon, Portugal

Stunning views, Pastel de nata, endless parties in Bairro Alto, seaside restaurants, there are simply too many reasons visit Lisbon, so make sure you don't miss it.

8. Dubrovnik, Croatia

Discover the beauty of this old town while taking a walk along the ancient city walls. You may find hidden lanes, secret piazzas, and when you're done with visiting the museums and medieval churches, you can plunge into the azure water of the Adriatic Sea.

9. London, UK

You probably don't think at romance first, when planning a trip to London, but it's the perfect place to put on the best clothes and feel royal, while discovering the endless attractions of the world's most visited city. Try it!

10. Florence, Italy

Back to Italy, the Renaissance city of Florence will amaze you with classic architecture, authentic Tuscan cuisine and world-class art.

I may say that all of them are romantic and it depends of where you met your other heart of your life. For me, it is Paris !!!

I was in 50% from them, but I would say: it doesn't matter WHERE - it matters WITH WHOM! Prague is fantastic... Anche bella Italia!

Most of these are great places, however London more romantic than Paris! Not sure I can agree with that, or maybe 17 years in London have coloured my judgement.

Oh, yes. And it's such a pleasure to be in a place with a person whose heart is open to loving the city. Someone intoxicated with the city and you.

Nice collection of images.

I would argue it is not the city that is romantic but the person you are with!

About me

Never in my life had I thought I would become a photographer... It all started as a small business, in a small town, for small money. I bought my first (small) camera to shoot graduation portraits in high schools. But then, having a digital camera, I took it anywhere with me, and shot everything I saw. This is how the passion grew on me. Photography soon became my passion, my job, my life. The passion got bigger, the camera got bigger, and the money also (because I never forgot about the business factor). Finding my passion and making money from it led to a beaut... [Read more]
