Perfect Valentine’s getaways in Europe
Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and it’s the perfect opportunity to whisk your loved one away on a romantic trip to somewhere special. Europe is filled with many dreamy cities that can provide the perfect backdrop for a romantic trip for you and your partner.
A Valentine’s Day getaway surely couldn’t get much more romantic than visiting the “City of Love” itself. Stroll down the charming streets, take in the spectacular views from the top of the Eiffel Tower and treat yourselves to dinner in one of the city’s finest restaurants. With more than seventy different Michelin starred restaurants in Paris you’ll be spoiled for choice.
Be sure to check into one of the top luxury hotels in Paris during your stay. Favourites include Le Bristol Paris, Four Seasons Hotel George V, Le Meurice and Hotel Plaza Athenee.
Scotland’s capital city is without a doubt one of the most romantic cities in the UK, thanks to its striking good looks and sense of mystery and history. Edinburgh Castle dominates the skyline of the city, as it looks down from its elevated pitch atop a dormant volcano. History is everywhere in the streets of the Old Town and wandering down them can feel like a trip back in time.
Visitors can also find fabulous boutique hotels, many fine dining restaurants, some great shopping opportunities and plenty of unique things to do and see.
Florence is a city where art, architecture and beauty are all around. Admire the Ponte Vecchio, one of the most famous and beautiful bridges in the world that dates all the way back to 1345. Don’t miss going inside Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral, which dominates the skyline with its incredible Renaissance dome. The dome remains to this day the largest of its type in the world and those who are feeling energetic can climb the 463 steps to reach the top.
One of the most romantic things to do in Florence away from the majority of tourists is to head to the Piazza de Michelangelo, a gorgeous piazza with stunning views of the city.
Prague, Czech Republic
With exquisite views, adorable cobbled streets, attractive architecture and an abundance of art, Prague is undoubtedly one of the most romantic cities in Europe. Wander through the lovely gardens of Petrin Park and enjoy views across the city from the hill, take a cruise on the canal, head to one of the three opera houses in the city and stay in one of the best hotels in the city. The most popular hotels with discerning travellers are the Boscolo Prague, Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental and Alchymist Grand Hotel and Spa.
